Vertical Express is the only national event series that combines skiing and fundraising to empower people with MS. Located at the nation’s top ski resorts, Vertical Express features on-mountain and après skiing activities for people of all ages and ability levels. Funds raised at these events support lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their support partners.
For 31 years, Vertical Express has grounded us in our roots and helped change the lives of people with MS – this year was no different.
Thanks to the support we received from our seven host mountains and local communities, along with the tremendous backing from participants, volunteers, and donors, we raised $238,377 for our lifestyle empowerment programs!
Here’s a big shout out to our top overall fundraiser, Louis Jemison, from the Squaw Valley Vertical Express. Louis raised over $16,000, winning him a trip to Vail, CO, during the 2016/2017 ski season!
In conjunction with our Vertical Express events, we provided the opportunity for 24 people with MS and their support partners to participate in adaptive ski experiences at Vail, Squaw Valley, and Loon Mountain Resorts. Read more.
