DOVER-February means AbilityPLUS at Mount Snow is busy getting the word out about the Winterfest fundraiser at Mount Snow, set for Saturday, March 1. This year the event joins Mount Snow’s Mardi Gras celebration, with the Ski/Ride-Til-You-Drop-A-Thon, plenty of beads, and a prize wheel to benefit AbilityPLUS, courtesy of Verizon Wireless.

Following the Ski/Ride-A-Thon, join us for a Mardi Gras-themed après party, with expanded buffet, raffle, and live and silent auctions, at The Lodge at Mount Snow.

Register for the Ski/Ride-Til-You-Drop-A-Thon, and start an online fundraising page. Ask friends and family to sponsor participants for the day, or by the number of runs completed, in support of AbilityPLUS adaptive sports and recreation programs at Mount Snow. For more information visit abilityplus.org. AbilityPLUS is also asking for help acquiring items for the live and silent auctions, along with some great prizes for the raffles. Big-ticket items such as vacations, airline tickets, hotel stays, electronics, and ski/snowboard equipment are particularly important. Gift baskets will be created for the raffle and silent auction. No donated item is too great or too small.

AbilityPLUS program fees cover some of the actual cost of providing our programs. It relies on the generosity of individual donors, sponsors, and of course our volunteers, to fulfill its mission. Thanks to ongoing support, no one is ever turned away from an AbilityPLUS program for lack of ability to pay. Winterfest at Mount Snow is the largest fundraising event held each ski season.
