Vermont Adaptive Announces a New $1.7 Million Facility at Sugarbush

Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports has announced that the organization is officially underway with the final phases of its Home Sweet Home Permanent Homes Campaign and plans to break ground on a new state-of-the-art $1.7 million adaptive sports facility at Mt. Ellen at Sugarbush Resort in Spring 2019.

Friends and participants of Vermont Adaptive’s programs at Sugarbush have pledged a generous challenge to match every dollar up to $1 million for the Sugarbush facility. Sugarbush officials have donated use of the land necessary to build upon. Permitting for the project is in progress.

Architectural plans, renderings and permitting began in Spring 2018 for the new 4,000-sq. ft. adaptive sports facility.  See them here >>

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Vermont Adaptive in their efforts to build a new adaptive sports facility here at Mt. Ellen,” said Win Smith, president of Sugarbush Resort. “We believe in the great work of Vermont Adaptive and provide full support to realize their vision.”

Fundraising is underway with a total goal of $4 million to build, open and sustain this new facility at Sugarbush, plus a new permanent home on the Burlington Waterfront and Bike Path, and to create a sustainability fund to support these programs and facilities into the future.
