On March 14th, 2022, Tom Hall will attempt to ski 55,000 vertical feet at Stowe Mountain Resort. The funds raised from his quest will be used to purchase adaptive ski equipment to be used by adults and youth with disabilities.
 
Green Mountain Adaptive Sports is reaching out to encourage friends and supporters to open their hearts and wallets to contribute to Tom’s effort to ski over 27 runs off the Four Runner Quad at Stowe by making a donation.
 

Tom hopes to raise funds so that Green Mountain Adaptive Sports can purchase technologically advanced adaptive ski equipment from Enabling Technologies. This equipment will be shared by many GMAS ski scholarship recipients, all adults and youth with disabilities who cannot otherwise purchase, or access the equipment. This equipment will be available for all, and put to good use for years to come.

You can make an online tax deductible donation by filling out the form below.

Those of you that have followed Tom Hall’s career path know that he has become increasingly involved in adaptive sports.

This year, the Stowe resident was promoted to Adaptive Trainer at the Stowe Mountain Resort Ski and Snowboard School where he has been employed for six years. The position enables him to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with other instructors.

Tom is a certified PSIA Level 2 Alpine Instructor, and is also accredited in mono-ski, bi-ski and four track skiing from the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA-AASI).

 
In the summer time, Tom coaches rehabilitation athletes in adaptive kayaking and cycling for Spaulding Adaptive Sports Center on Cape Cod.
 
Tom joined the Green Mountain Adaptive Sports (GMAS) Board of Directors four years ago. His vast experience in adaptive sports is greatly appreciated and provides valuable insights on various projects and efforts.

Tom is specifically trying to raise money to purchase a Monique mono-ski valued at $5,450, and possibly also a Children’s Snowslider and an Adult Snowslider, valued at $3,000 each.

 

GMAS’s current fleet of mono-skis supports intermediate to advanced skiers; the Monique is more appropriate for beginners. GMAS does not have a Children’s Snowslider, which is ideal for potential skiers who suffer from cerebral palsy and similar conditions. The Adult Snowslider we have now is effective, but rather dated.

 
Tom will post his final results around March 15th. Donations will be accepted until March 20th. Any support is welcome, even if it involves heartily cheering him on from the chairlift at about 3:55pm as he hopes to make his last run down Liftline!
 
Thanks to all in advance for the generosity. We hope to see to you on the slopes!
