February 21st, 2015 - Vail,CO
Registration opens in November.
A series of on-snow fundraising events and activities for skiers, boarders and telemarkers of all ages and abilities. Join us and participate in a variety of on-snow events at ski resorts around the country to raise money for Can Do MS’s lifestyle empowerment programs. Each event is as unique as its host mountain.
We are excited to announce our Vail Vertical Express on Saturday, February 8th was a huge success, forging new relationships and creating many new memories! Over 180 people joined us on the mountain to celebrate Can Do MS’s 30th Anniversary and the 50th Anniversary (to the day) of when our founder, Jimmie Heuga, and his good friend and teammate Billy Kidd became the first American men to medal in the Olympics on February 8th, 1964 in Innsbruck, Austria.
To help us celebrate, Vail mountain renamed a ski run to “Jimmie Heuga Express” for the day! Billy Kidd along with Jimmie’s three sons Wilder, Blaze and Winston led a memorial ski down to honor and remember our founder. Participants also enjoyed an on-mountain scavenger hunt, slalom racing, adaptive skiing opportunities and après party where Winston Heuga’s bluegrass band, 10th Mountain Division, cranked out some tunes. Thanks to everyone who helped make this a memorable celebration!
