Vermont Adaptive at Pico
Posted by Pico Mountain on February 11, 2010
At Pico, we pride ourselves on being accessible to everybody in terms of cost and variety of terrain. And a big part of that commitment is our partnership with Vermont Adaptive, an organization dedicated to providing outdoor activities for everyone, regardless of disability.
Since this weekend is Valentine’s Day, what better way to share the love than participating in the 2010 Ski Challenge? It’s a race down the mountain teams of three – creative costumes are encouraged! And because it’s the biggest fundraiser of the year, Vermont Adaptive is also hosting a gala and silent auction after the race. Find out more online, and consider spending your weekend at Pico to support a great cause.
Vermont Adaptive has been working at Pico for over 20 years, thanks to a base of over 400 volunteers, supporters and friends to the organization. Through instruction and access to sports, Vermont Adaptive’s goal is to show that sports are meant for everyone, no exceptions.
Pico enjoys being involved in the community, and we make sure to show it in our actions. We’ve fundraised through United Way Day for the Rutland Chapter of the United Way, and donated over 1,000 lift tickets to the American Red Cross to help them successfully set a blood drive record. We know that it’s locals who support Pico, so it’s important to us to stay involved with our guests.
Stop by Vermont Adaptive next time you’re on the hill, and keep an eye out for announcements of new partnerships at Pico. Our connection to the community is one of the things that makes Pico unique, and we plan on maintaining that for years to come.
Enjoy the holiday week!
