DOVER-AbilityPLUS Adaptive Sports invites everyone to join the fun in this year’s primary fundraiser supporting adaptive snow-sports programs at Mount Snow. “Ski/Ride ‘Til You Drop-A-Thon” will be held on the slopes of Mount Snow, followed by a festive Mardi Gras-themed après party with live and silent auction at The Lodge on Route 100.

Ski/Ride ‘Til You Drop-A-Thon participants have friends and family sponsor each run. The more runs they make, the more money they earn. Prizes for most runs made and most money raised are among the prizes awarded during the party at The Lodge.

Registration for the event is open to anyone and can be made through the AbilityPLUS website,, or in person Saturday, March 1, beginning at 9 am. Everyone is invited to the après party at The Lodge beginning at 5 pm, whether they’ve been in the ski-a-thon or not.

Auction items and raffle prizes include ski and snowboard gear, restaurant gift certificates, Yankees and Red Sox tickets, vacation getaways, a big-screen smart TV, and more.

AbilityPLUS is in its 15th year of enriching the lives of program participants, their families, friends, and a growing community of volunteers who provide adaptive sports and recreation opportunities for people with disabilities. The AbilityPLUS Bluebirds Alpine Race Team will compete in the Vermont Special Olympics on March 8 and 9. Please contact Linda Walsh at (802) 464-1100, ext. 4699, for more information about Winterfest or any AbilityPLUS program.
