We’ve got great items for people to bid on at the silent auction.” The Ski/Ride ‘Til You Drop-A-Thon is an important fundraiser for AbilityPLUS at Mount Snow, a non profit organization that relies on donations to support their efforts. “We are very proud of the programs we offer to all people with all manner of disabilities.  Adaptive sports have such a positive impact on people’s lives, and our programs are accessible to everyone, regardless of their economic circumstances,” AbilityPLUS explains.  Among the many programs AbilityPLUS offers, AbilityPLUS at Mount Snow provides programs to area children who, due to their physical and/or cognitive impairments, would otherwise not be able to participate in their school’s weekly ski/ride programs at Mount Snow.
