Letter To Our Supporters

Greetings from Shasta Disabled Sports! Our winter 2011/2012 events schedule has been set and can be viewed in the right hand column of this website.

For the past 6 years, we have been helping kids and adults throughout the region enjoy the great outdoors that we all cherish. Our programs provide a unique chance to interact with nature, be physically active and socialize with others, opportunities that no other organization in our area provides. Thank you for being a part of what we do each year.

As we prepare for the winter season, we are faced with the seasonal insurance payments required to keep us in business. If you value the work we do in the disabled community, I urge you to take a moment now and become a member of Shasta Disabled Sports. The generosity of our annual members makes our programs possible, as grants rarely cover insurance costs. By becoming a member, you become an important partner in the work we do. You can always feel good about giving to Shasta Disabled Sports, because your gift goes directly to our programs, as we are an all-volunteer organization with no other overhead costs.

To become a member now, donate online at or mail in a check for $25 to Shasta DS/USA, PO Box 191, Mount Shasta, CA 96067

Thank you in advance for supporting Shasta Disabled Sports with your valuable membership gift and playing an active role in serving the disabled community. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you out on the slopes this winter!

Aaron, Robin, Merle, Donna, Didier, Anna, and all of us at Shasta Disabled Sports.

Usher in the new ski season at Shasta Disabled Sports U.S.A.’s (SDS) Second Annual Powder Stomp.

“The Powder Stomp is intended to get the community excited about winter, if they aren’t already,” says event coordinator, Gary Nordel.

The evening begins with a screening of Signatures, Sweetgrass Production’s new board, noboard, ski, and drop-knee film.

Filmed in the mountains of Hokkaido, Japan, the film is a “lovely tale of deep powder mystery” and features of one of Mount Shasta’s own big mountain skiers, Forrest Coots.

“We are very excited to be able present this film to our community,” says Anna Soviecke, SDS’ event coordinator. “Signatures is a great film and is sure to get the audience looking forward to lots of snow.”

Live music will follow the film. Attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite retro outfits and to come dance their best snow dance.

Beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

A Patagonia garage sale will be held throughout the evening. “Every year Patagonia sends us huge boxes of clothing,” says Aaron Beverly, SDS board member. “This garage sale allows us to pass it on to our supporters at a big discount and allows us to raise a little extra money for our program.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit SDS’s adaptive ski program. SDS is a non-profit providing year round recreation and sport opportunities for people with disabilities.

The Powder Stomp will be held on Saturday, November 14th at the City Park Lower Lodge. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Film starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door for $12. Call 530-925-1531 for more details.
