Skiing is a terrific sport that everyone should have the opportunity to experience. Help us make this experience more accessible to all. The Ski Butternut Adaptive Ski School is very fortunate to have individuals who have already made considerable donations, allowing the program to purchase the latest specialized equipment (our last purchase was a Ski-Slider-Walker - costing over $1500). New equipment is always needed. Help by making a donation.
