The third annual Oregon Adaptive Sports Ski For All is Saturday, March 14 at Mt. Bachelor. The Ski For All is an all-abilities ski-a-thon that helps support access to the outdoors for individuals of all abilities by supporting OAS, which works to empower people of all abilities to live a thriving life by fully engaging in the outdoor community. Registration and donations are still being taken to support this effort.
Ski or ride as much as you can in one day while raising funds to support the mission of Oregon Adaptive Sports.
HOW IT WORKS:
The Ski For All is a full day, 9am-4pm all-abilities ski-a-thon at Mt Bachelor. The feel-good competition is to raise funds to support OAS and to ensure that life-changing outdoor recreation is available to people of ALL abilities. The athletic competition is to ski or ride as many vertical feet in one day as possible utilizing any and all terrain that is open, while the Serious Stoke competition offers prizes for the Scavenger Hunt and other categories!
