Tom Hall is hoping to beat his personal record of skiing 39 runs on the Four Runner Quad and crushing 79,298 feet of vertical skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort in one day on Monday, March 18th. He is also trying to raise $10,000 for Green Mountain Adaptive Sports.

This will be the third year that the Stowe Adaptive Ski instructor, a Certified PSIA Level 2 Alpine Instructor, accredited in mono-ski, bi-ski and four track skiing from the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA-AASI), and GMAS Board member participates in this personal challenge to raise funds for Green Mountain Adaptive Sports.

This year, Tom is raising funds for the purchase of a TetraSki to be used at Stowe, as well as for ski instructor trainings which can be very expensive.

Tom is hoping to raise $10,000 through this fundraiser and invites everyone to help him achieve this goal by making a donation on his fundraising page:

In 2022, Tom accomplished his goal of skiing 55,000 vertical feet to celebrate his 55th birthday anniversary. Thanks to the generosity of 76 donors, he also exceeded his fundraising goal, raising $16,500 to purchase new adaptive ski equipment for the GMAS program. Read the full story here.

A year later, he would set a new record, skiing an impressive 79,298 feet, or 39 runs on the Quad. He raise over $14,000 last year which helped fund a ski camp for veterans at Stowe Mountain Resort. Read the full story here.

We are cheering for Tom, and will be following his progress throughout the day on Monday, March 18th. Please feel free to join him on the chairlift and offer him a snack or a warm drink. Or, if you’re fast enough, take a run or two with him.

If you can, please consider making a donation to his campaign so he can proudly add one more success to his epic Vertical Challenge. Thank you!
