USABA hosts ski festival at Breckenridge
The United States Association of Blind Athletes will host a Learn to Ski/Learn to Race Alpine Ski Festival at Breckenridge Ski Resort starting March 12.
The three-day event, sponsored by Anthem Life, will give 15 blind or visually impaired athletes the opportunity to learn to ski or race with trained guides provided by the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC).
“With the generous support from Anthem Life, The United States Association of Blind Athletes is pleased to partner with the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center to provide a meaningful opportunity for skiers who are blind and visually impaired including military service members and veterans with eye injuries,” USABA’s executive director Mark Lucas said in a press release.
The BOEC is a non-profit organization committed to expanding the potential of people with disabilities and special needs through meaningful, educational and inspiring outdoor experiences.
