Carter Classic – Results

Again in 2018, our supporter’s generosity has left us speechless. 32 individuals worked tirelessly and collected pledges from 256 donors. These individual donations, ranging from $5 to $2000, tallied up over $21,000! The support SSASS receives locally and from places as far away as Australia, Ontario and Vancouver is beyond belief.

We are 100% donor funded. SSASS is one of very few adaptive programs that can offer lessons at no charge. Carter Classic, our corporate sponsors and Silver Star Mountain Resort make this possible. Without you we would not be here.

In 2018 your donations made it possible for 94 adaptive skiers and snowboarders to experience the thrill of Silver Star. Combined they received 550 lessons. Our volunteer instructors donated 1600 hours of instruction time.

About the race … what a day we had!! 18cm of snow over night and temperatures down to -17C made things interesting to say the least. The Silver Star Mountain Resort team of groomers, course setters and staff did an outstanding job of prepping the course and setting up the corral. A small snag with the equipment meant we didn’t start racing quite on time, but eventually it all worked out.

75 intrepid racers braved the conditions to rock the race course. Not everyone finished, there were one or two spectacular spills, but everyone had fun. And that’s what it is all about.

There are no words to express the depth of our gratitude to everyone involved today. Sponsors, racers, volunteers and staff … Thank You!
