The Great Race

Blind ski racer and guideSTRIDE’s Great Race, a Diana Golden Mills Cup Level I Adaptive Race, is a competitive event for nearly 100 disabled ski racers from across the Northeast.  An inspiring day of individual victories and monumental successes realized on the race course at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA,  the event is open to all adaptive skiers of any age, skill level, or disability.

The event is designed to introduce adaptive skiers to the thrill and excitement of racing in a safe and essentially low-competitive format. Each racer is timed in two runs through a giant slalom course set on beginner terrain, and special awards are given to the top three finishers in each category. Divisions are open to Visually Impaired, Blind, 2-Track, 3-Track, 4-Track, Bi-ski, Mono Skiers and Snowboarders with special needs, and the course is set-up to accommodate different skill levels. Many of our students with disabilities train all season with STRIDE’s dedicated staff of volunteer ski instructors to reach the starting gate on race day.
