2015 Ski A Thon Fundraising

March 3rd, 2015

Hello Achievers Supporters!

We are only a short time away from our annual “Ski-A-Thon” Fundraiser, which kicks off next weekend and will continue through the months of March and April.

Throughout the winter season each year,  The Achievers, a chapter of Disabled Sports, is able to help our students enjoy time on the mountain learning skiing and snowboarding. This year we are seeking to raise funds for the following equipment:

  • (1) New Mono Ski Rig= $5,000
  • (2) Pair of Yetti Outriggers = $350 ea./$700 total
  • (4) Pair of Ski Tip Retainers (Edgy Wedgy)= $100

The Achievers continue to be the only Adaptive Ski program at Mammoth Mountain that provides free ski instructions, free usage of adaptive equipment, and free lift tickets. In addition to our equipment needs this year, we are asking for your assistance in supporting the ongoing expense of maintaining our program.

These expenses include:

Discounted Lodging For new students – Value=$150/night

Free Lift Tickets for each student. – Value= $99/Day/Adult

Free Instruction – Value=$75 half day/$150 full day (Prices from Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra)

Total Support per Student=Up to $825/weekend

As you can see, the savings support are significant and enable many students to enjoy one of the finest ski resorts in North America.

Your support really makes a difference. In 2014, in addition to maintaining the above expenses, we were able to replace 20+ year trailer, and updated instructors and student jackets, allowing the Achievers to better market our program on the mountain and create a sense of pride for our students and instructors.  

We are excited to have such an incredible 2015 season, and with your support hope to have many more. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

We are a solely self-supporting, non-profit organization.  We have no paid staff and receive no support from the government.  The funds to keep this program alive are raised through private/corporate donations, and annual events that we host through out the year.
