Our first season!

Our first season!

Today was the last day of the program. What an amazing season! We have definitely seen amazing growth and lives changed! I would have to say that the most improved student would have to be Sharlene. When she first started, she couldn’t ski at all, but with the help of our amazing instructors, she is now flying down the hill and proving that nothing is impossible! I have loved watching our two sit skiers, Leighton and Danny, smiling and laughing as they come down the hill at light speed, they are so encouraging and extremely inspiring! James, our snowboarder, accepts any challenge offered to him and shows wonderful confidence in his skiing. Our newest student, Jack, has accepted the challenge of learning to ski, and even with a few bumps along the way, is growing stronger every time he ski’s. And we couldn’t forget little Taiga, who was very brave and tried sit skiing for the first time with us and was also able to ski with his dad for the very first time! I will never forget his smile and the tearful smile of his parents as he skied! These beautiful stories could never be told if it weren’t for our amazing instructors, Axelle, Andrew, Casey, Dagny, Dale, Jacob, Jonathan, Jude (who also made our gorgeous website!), Maggie, Mary, and Piotr. They have donated their time to come and ski with these kids and have done such an amazing job! We couldn’t do without our wonderful on snow support, Dave and Anita, and our amazing fundraising committee who helped make our beautiful parade float. We have to say a huge thank you to Fernie Alpine Resort and our sponsors for allowing our program to be offered for such a low price and supporting us in so many other ways. And last but certainly not least, I have to thank our FIRE board, Jennifer, Andy, Janice, Nelda and David for the countless amount of work and energy that they put in to make this program possible! Words could never express how grateful I am to each and every one of you! Thanks to you we are free to ski! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
