Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow is an independently run 501(c)(3). We are an active chapter of Move United. We are led by a diverse Board of Directors, and directed daily by a small dedicated staff who could not exist without the generous donation of hundreds of thousands of hours from volunteer instructors and assistants.

Winter Program Coordinator
Ashley is new to ASMS this year, and will be joining our team as our new Winter Program Coordinator. She is originally from New Hampshire, but has taken a liking to Vermont and Mount Snow over the past six years. You may recognize her from working in various restaurants and snowboard/ski shops in the Mount Snow area, or helping out with the ASMS Backside Night Fundraisers. She earned a BS in Health Science with a focus on Exercise Science from Franklin Pierce University in 2016, and recently just graduated from River Valley Community College with a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant. Self-identifying as a boardsporter, she loves boards of all kinds, and has one for every season. She has been wakeboarding for 13 years, has been a wakeboard coach since 2014, has been snowboarding for 7 years, and skateboarding for 5 years. Despite being a boarder, Ashley became a PSIA Adaptive Certified Ski Instructor during her first winter with ASMS. When Ashley is not on a board, she likes to spend her free time in the woods or at the lake with her dogs Sailor and Sadie.
