To the Editor,

I want to publicly thank Mount Snow for their continued support of the Deerfield Valley Community Partnership. We recently received a generous donation from their staff appreciation day, as well as a check for collaboration on the Choose sNOw Program.

Choose sNOw is for students currently in grades seven to 12. Students earn season passes by attending two substance abuse prevention events in the spring with their parents, and by participating in Vermont Green Up Day.

The evening presentations cover topics such as drug and alcohol prevention, risk-taking, peer pressure, traffic safety, and making healthy choices.

In addition, to these evening events, funding from Choose sNOw provides local assemblies at Twin Valley Middle High School for all students in grades six to 12. This is an important element of the program as it benefits all of our youth, not only those that are able to participate in the pass program.

The student cost for the Choose sNOw program is $50 for a season pass, valued at $700. Registration typically takes place in February and 100% of the funds collected are donated to DVCP to support a variety of programs and activities.

Thank you to Kelly Pawlak, Mount Snow General Manager, for this important collaboration to reduce substance use among our youth and to Mount Snow staff, Matt Conroy and Claire Sears, for all of their efforts on the Choose sNOw program.


Cindy Hayford

DVCP Director
