Get those thighs in shape — it’s almost time once again for the WVAS Ski-a-thon! Enjoy private-line privileges to the White Peak Quad while you burn your way to 30,000 vertical feet or more. It’s not a race, but we do keep track of participants’ runs for bragging rights, and there just might be some cool swag involved, too.

And… our Apres Party HAS A NEW LOCATION and time!!!!
Join us directly following skiing/riding in the WVAS OFFICE at the base of the mountain for an Apres party and hot item live auction!
Tickets to the Apres party will be sold at the door for $30 for adults, $20 for children. Select beach beverages will be lining the decks to help soothe those sore muscles!
Most importantly, this year’s event is dedicated to Nancy Waddell. For over a decade Nancy has been the heart and brightest light of this program. We miss her more than words can ever express, and are forever indebted to her for enriching the lives of everyone she touched. This world is a better place because of her. She will forever be in our hearts and we know that she will be hula-hooping from somewhere beautiful with us!
Remember, all funds raised will be used to purchase specialized adaptive equipment, host disabled veterans and their families, sponsor many families of autistic children the chance to enjoy the slopes and provide ski lessons and equipment to over a thousand athletes of cognitive and physical challenges.
