In mid-June, construction began on a new adaptive ski center and ski patrol clinic at Snowshoe Mountain Resort’s Silver Creek area. The new slopeside building is a log and timber structure that will add 2,800 square feet of space. The Challenged Athletes of West Virginia (CAWV) adaptive sports program will be housed in the building, along with a new ski patrol first aid clinic.
CAWV is a non-profit organization providing outdoor recreation opportunities for disabled children and adults. Students range from five-year olds to senior citizens, facing challenges such as cerebral palsy, paraplegia, brain injury, and visual and hearing impairment.
“We assisted over 400 clients last year and expect that total to double within the next couple of years,” said Dave Begg, Executive Director of CAWV.
