PICO TO HOST NEW VERMONT ADAPTIVE FACILITY

by Craig Altschul

The Vermont Adaptive and Sports is the state’s largest organization to offer year-round adaptive sports programs to people with disabilities. It recently announced Pico Mountain will be the site of its new $1.3 million access-for-all, multi-use building. Groundbreaking is scheduled for this summer. The first phase of the three-phase building campaign partners with Pico Ski Education Foundation, an alpine ski racing nonprofit organization. The partnership will provide the first year-round adaptive Vermont sports center, as well as the organization’s state headquarters. The building, to be known as The PEAK Lodge, represents the two organizations’ values: performance, excellence, ability, and knowledge. Vermont Adaptive has more than 500 volunteers who serve clients with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities. They maintain three Vermont locations: Pico Mountain at Killington, Sugarbush Resort, and Bolton Valley Resort.
