The annual skiing extravaganza known as Vertical Express for Can Do MS is a series of on-snow fundraising events and activities for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. Join us and gather all your friends and family to enjoy a variety of on-snow events at four amazing ski resorts around the country. It’s time to ski and raise money for our lifestyle empowerment programs.
Each event is as unique as its host mountain. To see a full detailed schedule of events, fundraising minimums and prizes, please click the registration buttons below.
Please note: Crystal Mountain Vertical Express has a revised schedule due to lack of snow and limited access to the mountain and operations. Read more.

Adaptive Ski Experiences
In the spirit of living whole, healthy and active lifestyles, we are bringing Adaptive Ski Experiences to three different mountains (Vail, Crystal and Squaw) as a part of our 2015 Vertical Express events. We are thrilled to provide people with MS and their support partners an opportunity to learn how to ski with adaptive instructors and equipment…for free! Our adaptive ski experiences are designed to help participants build self-esteem and confidence, improve their fitness levels, make new friends, and enjoy a day on the slopes with their loved ones. Learn more and apply today!
The more you raise…the bigger the prize!
As soon as you register as a fundraising participant, our good friends at Liberty Skis will give you a gift card for $100 off the purchase of a brand new set of their award winning skis, along with donating 10% of your purchase back to Can Do MS! This year’s grand prize for the overall top fundraiser from all four mountains will win a trip to Vail. Thanks to our sponsor Liberty Skis, each mountains top fundraiser will receive a coupon for a FREE pair of skis of their choice.
Additional prizes will be awarded for reaching various fundraising goals. Learn more about the awesome prizes we have lined up this year to keep your momentum going. Fundraising ends March 31, 2015.
