Contributions by the FSC exceeds $149,400 for on-mountain charities since 1984.
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 both the Ski & Winter Sports Athletic Club at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind (FSDB), and the Veterans Adaptive Sports (VAS) Winter sports program. 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.
For the 2022 season, a group of (9) students from FSDB were taken on a once in a lifetime trip to Whitefish, Montana, thanks to the generous donations from the Florida Ski Council member family. Here is a link to a video made from that trip:
