WEST DOVER- Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow kicked off their inaugural season last weekend. Providing ski and snowboard lessons for people with challenges. ASMS is led by two highly certified and professional staff, Tera Adams, program director, formerly from Park City, UT, and Mount Snow’s own Yuri Czmola, assistant director. With a core of over 250 motivated volunteer instructors, the prospects for a great season loom ahead.  Local valley residents Dick Ward, of Marlboro, and Rob Lawrence, of Wilmington, are members of the organization’s board of directors and volunteer with the program. Created over 20 years ago, the adaptive sports program at Mount Snow has grown tremendously and last season provided over 1,250 lessons to local and out of town guests, local school children, wounded veterans, and rehabilitation groups from different states in New England. Stop by the Discovery Center building at Mount Snow to see the program in action. Volunteering and donation information can be found on
