Broadway Ridge on Mt. Shasta

It appears that we are going to have a real Mt. Shasta Winter again. The Mount Shasta Ski Park is open with 5 feet of snow at the top of Douglas chair lift. The skiing has been phenomenal!

Shasta Disabled Sports plans to offer all our usual winter events. See the right sidebar for scheduled events.

In addition, we will be offering the Ski Buddy Program to all members. Ski buddies are volunteers team up with skiers with special needs that need some help on the slopes. Members can participate in this program on any day at any time. Just call or email us to make a reservation and give us about a week's notice so we can make arrangements.

See you on the slopes!

Fun at the Free Adaptive Weekend

Shasta Disabled Sports held its 7th Annual Free Adaptive Weekend last weekend. We provided snowboard and ski lessons as well as sit-ski rides in the bi-ski. All equipment, lift tickets, and lessons were given without any cost to our members. Thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers for helping out.

We'd like to especially thank the Mount Shasta Ski Park, Yaqui Snowboards, and the Best Western Tree House for helping us raise money for our program.
