Registration is underway for the Disabled Skiers Association of B.C.’s inaugural Ski Challenge Day, which will take place on Sunday, Mar. 5. Organizers are looking for individuals and teams to take part in the challenge, which takes place on five designated runs at different ability levels during the day. The event wraps up with a Hot Chocolate Party, and a prize draw.

Individual participants will do all five runs, while teams of five will divide up the runs however they choose.

In addition to competing on the hill, participating teams will also compete to see who can raise the highest pledge total, with a chance to win a $5,000 gift certificate for Spokes ‘N Motion adapted ski equipment, which can be donated to the individual or DSABC ski program of the team’s choosing.

The cost of participating is $30, which includes a discounted lift ticket at either Whistler Mountain or Grouse Mountain — wherever you choose to take part.

The DSABC has been promoting adaptive snow sports as a form of recreation and rehabilitation since 1973, and offers programs across the province.

For more information on how you can participate, contact Penny Bartel at 604-737-3038, or disabledskiers@telus.net.
