To the Slopes

November. Time for sweaters, fireplaces, planning for the holidays and your ski trip. Yes, ski trip.

The Adaptive Sports Association (ASA), a non-profit organization that works to enhance the lives of the disabled, offers the New Dimension Scholarship for snow skiing. The ASA has been serving hysically and cognitively disabled people for over 20 years helping them enjoy sports with adaptive equipment.

The ski scholarship includes roundtrip transportation to Durango, Colorado, 5 nights lodging and meals, accessible ground transportation, and 4 days instruction. Thanks to an MSF grant, ASA will host more MSers.

Skiing and snowboarding are popular activities with the disabled. Wonder how it works? Visit this site for ways to adapt.

Apply by Dec. 15. Good luck!
