  • The 18TH Annual Michael Gray Memorial Ski & Snowboard Race

    The Michael Gray Memorial Ski & Snowboard Race is a great opportunity for all types of skiers and snowboarders to spend a day of fun at beautiful Ski Windham and to support the Adaptive Sports Foundation. Michael J. Gray, Jr. was a snowboard instructor with the Ski Windham Snow Sports School, when he was tragically killed in a car accident. To honor Michael’s memory and dedication to snow sports, the Gray family started a memorial race in Michael’s honor. The proceeds from the race are donated to the Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF), an organization that offers a disabled person the chance to enjoy the sport of skiing/snowboarding as much as Michael did.



    Founded in 1984, the Adaptive Sports Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides profound and life changing experiences for children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities and chronic illnesses through outdoor physical activity, education, support and community. ASF students are five years of age and older and live with disabilities ranging from relatively mild learning disabilities to more severe disabilities such as paralysis, autism, amputation, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury.

    As the largest adaptive sport program on the East Coast and considered amongst the top adaptive programs in the country, the Adaptive Sports Foundation offers both winter and summer sports. ASF has a very active competition program, preparing athletes for Paralympic and Special Olympic competition.

    Because of fundraisers like the Michael Gray Memorial Race, the ASF has also been able to teach men and women of our armed forces, who have been severely injured, how to ski or snowboard through the ASF Warriors in Motion® (WIM) programs. The ASF is proud to have been one of the first programs in the country to offer sport programs to our wounded military personnel and in the past twelve years, has served hundreds of wounded warriors and their families.
