Since 1984, The Florida Ski Council has supported charities at the resorts we visit as well as here at home in Florida. While our main purpose is to assure that our members enjoy themselves on their ski trip, we also want to leave behind a positive reminder of our group in the communities we visit.

 

 

Each year, the Florida Ski Council supports the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, and the Disabled Veteran’s Winter Sports Program, as well as a charity selected by the resort we visit. To date, we have supported various programs for blind skiers, physically challenged skiers, youth ski programs, charitable groups, and hospitals in the resorts we have visited. The Florida Ski Council was the first council in the country to adopt a charitable program such as this.

A letter from the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program

Dear Clair and the wonderful crew at the Florida Ski Council,

Thank you so very much for your amazing generosity and support of Telluride Adaptive Sports Program! We are pleased to announce that the silent auction at your event raised more than $2,200 for Telluride Adaptive Sports Program. The money was applied to bring disabled veterans to ski and snowboard for a week of amazing adventure and therapeutic recreation. The week of February 14-21, 2015 we had 16 veterans join us from the West Palm Beach area. They were just a few of the more than 100 disabled veterans that we bring to Telluride each year as part of our Stars, Stripes and Summits programs for US Service men and women. These life changing experiences help to challenge, inspire and empower those with disabilities.

Thank you again for your support and for helping to make more possible!

With Gratitude,

Courtney Stuecheli, Executive Director
Telluride Adaptive Sports Program
