Stowe Annual Monoski Day
Sunday, January 12, 2020
GMAS has been hosting the Annual Stowe Monoski Day for the past seven years. The event is always a great success and made possible by the collaboration of the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers, Eastern Adaptive Sports, and the Kelly Brush Foundation.
Annually, some twenty mono sit-skiers of all ages and abilities come from near and far eager to ski at Stowe Mountain Resort, to share knowledge with each other, and to receive top notch ski instructions from our experts. This event puts a spotlight on adaptive skiing, gives the athletes a chance to trade stories, learn from each other, and hopefully introduce some members of the general public to monoskiing.
Expert and intermediate mono skiers are lead in clinics by Geoff Krill, director of Eastern Adaptive Sports and PSIA–AASI Adaptive Team Coach and by Chris Young, US Coast Guard (Ret.), World Cup and Paralympic Champion, X Games Champion, and volunteer at the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers. Other athletes receive one-on-one lessons with instructors of the Stowe Mountain Resort Ski and Snowboard ski school and of the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers.
Sincere thanks to our valued partners for contributing time, talent, expertise, adaptive equipment and volunteers to make this event a perennial favorite. This year’s Mono Ski Day is sponsored by Stowe Mountain Resort, Inntopia, and Green Mountain Inn. More details about the event can be found on Facebook.
