We’re still floating on cloud 9 after three unforgettable days enjoying the slopes at Sugarbush Resort for the 2nd Annual Ski Camp organized in collaboration with Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports. Ten campers of varying ski experience joined us on the slopes to elevate their skills through hands-on instruction and had plenty of time to put their newly acquired skills to the test on the trail. Despite the bitter cold temperatures, everyone had a fantastic experience!
In addition to the ten campers, the KBF was also joined by local experienced monoskiers in our KBF community who stopped by to take some turns with the group. The campers noted the importance of having a range of skiers with SCI to model the skills they are working on. From beginner skiers to independent athletes and everywhere in between, campers had the opportunity to talk shop about equipment, terrain, other adaptive sports, and setting personal goals.
The campers also had the opportunity to build camaraderie, friendship, and community off the snow. In addition to sharing meals, campers shared stories, experiences, and laughs. Staying in a hotel and away from home, this camp provided them the opportunity to grow confidence and independence in their lives, no matter the stage of their post-injury lives.
