Meet Me At The Mountain is pleased to featured in the New England Ski Museum – Online Store (catalog and website – http://www.skimuseum.org/ ). As the mission of the MMATM-Education Project is: To Educate – To Challenge and To Inspire, it is only fitting that we partner with the NESM.
Adaptive Snow Sports are such an important part of the ski industry! More and more, resorts across the United States and abroad offer adaptive skiing and snowboarding for persons with differing abilities. For those adaptive athletes who desire to compete, the Paralympics and Special Olympics provide opportunities to test your skills.
