Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports Auction

Opening Doors OVAS logo

As a proud board member of the Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports Program, I have exciting news about our inaugural, virtual fundraising initiative “Opening Doors to the Outdoors.”

Adapting to Covid required our organization to find an alternative to the popular, highly successful “Demo Day” fundraiser that had become a iconic Saturday celebration each March at Snowbasin.  With the help of everyone appreciative of the wonderful work done by the Adaptive Sports Program, we are convinced the upcoming auction, March 26 through the 28th, will be an overwhelming success.

For over 11 years we have provided adaptive ski and snowboarding opportunities to persons with disabilities at Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Nordic Valley.  We serve persons with all ranges of physical and cognitive disabilities, from 5 to 98 years old, including local school children and military veterans.

All proceeds from this event will directly support our adaptive sports programs through purchasing of adaptive equipment and covering costs for participants in financial need.

More details and event registration to come, but check out the list below for a sneak peek of items that will be auctioned off!
