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.

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).
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.
