On January 13, 2018, the Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) began its 24th season of adapted alpine skiing at Owl’s Head. For the past 24 years ASF have been fortunate to be based at Owl’s Head where the staff and administration help support our program during the winter season. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the owners of Owl’s Head, Fred and Lilian Korman for their generosity and help to make our program such a success year after year. This season our regular program will have 40 participants and 90 volunteers skiing for eight weeks.
On December 7, 2017, during a dinner at the MacIntosh Pub in Bromont the Foundation launched a new Elite Adaptive Alpine Ski Club program. The adaptive ski activities will be taking place at Bromont Ski Center on Sunday mornings January to March 2018. A dozen adaptive skiers will have the opportunity to perfect their technical skills with experienced instructors during the winter ski season.
ASF MOBILE UNIT
In addition to the regular winter program and the new elite program, we will also have several activities with the ASF Mobile Unit. The mobile unit will visit five different ski resorts with specialized equipment and volunteer instructors to teach and ski with youth with physical disabilities. Starlight Quebec – the children’s Foundation has asked us to participate in a Ski-a-Thon to be held on March 23, 2018, at Chantecler Ski Resort. This is the third year that Starlight has invited ASF to participate in their winter activity. ASF & Starlight will have 90 adaptive skiers & 40 volunteers participate in a 2-day event at the mountain.
