Stephen R Baum Group Lesson Program

Through a generous grant from the Stephen R Baum Foundation, Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow is able to offer lessons to eligible groups at a highly discounted rate.

Stephen Baum was a skier with Muscular Dystrophy who enjoyed a lot of time on the slopes of Mount Snow and other mountains in Southern Vermont. The foundation was created after his death and continues to support adults and children with mobility issues. The Stephen R Baum Group Lesson Program was created to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the Foundation.

VAIL / EPIC ADAPTIVE SKI PASSES

Adaptive Passes are season-long ski & ride passes that offer access to our resorts at a discounted rate for Pass Holders with permanent disabilities. 

Anyone determined to have a permanent disability that severely limits one or more major life activities is eligible for an Adaptive Pass. Vail Resorts qualifies a permanent disability as a permanent physical, mental, or sensory impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, or working. (note this is a Vail Product – not an Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow product).

Ingrid Walendy Scholarship

While our program fees cover less than 20% of the actual cost of a lesson, we understand that even at this discounted rate the fee can present a barrier to participate. The Ingrid Walendy Fund was established in memory of a dedicated volunteer who believed that everyone should have a chance to participate regardless of ability to pay.

Current COVID-19 Policy

In accordance with the recommendation of the CDC, ASMS encourages vaccination against COVID-19, though ASMS does not require vaccinations for COVID-19 for our volunteers. Attestation of lack of symptoms is required before attendance of volunteer and staff assignments. Students may request that instructors wear a mask during the duration of the lesson time. Please make that request known at time of booking.
