ADAPTIVE SKI SCHOLARSHIPS

Our founder, Olympic ski racer Jimmie Heuga, believed in the importance of focusing on what you “can do.” In Jimmie’s spirit, we offer opportunities for Adaptive Ski Scholarships to people living with MS. 

Can Do MS is providing scholarships for adaptive ski lessons facilitated by New England Disabled Sports and Challenge Mountain. These adaptive ski lessons take place during the SKI for MS event series, a community fundraiser bringing people together at mountains across the country. Click here to learn more about SKI for MS!

**Guests include spouses, children over the age of 18, friends, or other support partners. Guests are encouraged to ski alongside the adaptive participants; however, the instructor cannot provide instruction to guests. If guests are beginner skiers, they are responsible for booking their own instructor. Guests are also responsible for their own ski rentals.
