Ski resort makes it all possible
To the editor:
It’s safe to say that this winter and ski season is behind us, but not without first acknowledging another successful accessible ski and ride season in the Monadnock region. Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center’s Accessible Recreation and Sports (CMARS) program has partnered with Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride for the past nine years. We become more grateful and appreciative for our partnership every year.
It takes our licensed and certified therapeutic recreation specialists and trained volunteers, paired with skilled, patient and positive Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride lift operators, rental technicians and other team members to make this collaborative effort truly shine. As a result of our ongoing relationship, hundreds of individuals with disabilities who live in the greater Monadnock region have participated in thousands of hours of snow sport experiences!
We cannot thank Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride General Manager Pat Terry and his team enough for their important partnership with us. Ensuring access to skiing and riding for people of all abilities in the region through CMARS is made possible because the ski area donates space, lift tickets and jackets for our volunteers, and trains their own staff to accommodate our program’s unique needs.
Our gratitude does not end when the snow stops falling, so we send our heartfelt thanks from everyone at the CMARS program to Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride for being an outstanding partner and friend in providing adaptive sports programs for many more seasons to come.
