Bretton Woods Resort Partners with New England Disabled Sports
Bretton Woods Adaptive Sports & Recreation (BWA), located at Bretton Woods Ski Area, had announced a new partnership with New England Disabled Sports (NEDS), headquartered at Loon Mountain Resort. The new alliance with NEDS will provide for expanded programming, along with experienced and well-trained volunteers who will help people with special needs experience the outdoors.
By joining forces with NEDS, the program at BWA will gain strength in numbers, financial support and fundraising opportunities. All of this means top-level programming for the adaptive community. “Omni Mount Washington Resort is pleased to support Bretton Woods Adaptive during their transition from an independent non-profit organization to an affiliate of New England Disabled Sports,” said Chris Ellms, Director of Ski Area Operations at Bretton Woods. “BWA has always been an important part of our ski school offerings and we feel this partnership will ensure a professional level of service for years to come.” “It is a very exciting time for adaptive programming at Bretton Woods and we can’t wait to get started with New England Disabled Sports,” said Joe Shea, a BWA board member.
BWA has always provided top level instruction to its guests who have various disabilities. Using a variety of techniques and equipment, this dedicated group of volunteers meets the diverse needs of adaptive sports enthusiasts, as well as local New Hampshire students and newcomers to the sport of skiing. “We are excited about this partnership with Bretton Woods and the opportunity to build on the adaptive program,” said Roy Whitaker, Executive Director of New England Disabled Sports. “The combined resources of these organizations will certainly help raise the bar for adaptive sports programs everywhere.”
