Almost 300 members of the VASS community including students, families, volunteers and supporters joined us at Grouse Mountain on March 7th for a beautiful day of sunshine, snow and VASS MAGIC! Activities included a fun ski and snowboard race, an adaptive snow sport experience zone, an adventure course on Paradise, a ski-a-thon, apres party and a silent auction.
The goal of our race is to be consistent across two runs – and the winners were ‘Big Air’ Mare Deeley in the individual category, and the Stroopwafels in the team category.
To relive the day, take a look at the photos from the event in this Flickr Album (courtesy of Mark Teasdale).
The event raised more than $67,000 to support VASS programs that make the mountain experience accessible to all. Raising such a great amount makes us all winners, but a few extra shout-outs go to the winners of:
The coveted top fundraiser award: Jan Rae (individual) and the Seymour Saints (team)
Most adventurous award on the new Adventure Course: Scott Mallinson
Best Costume: the Unicorn Family
