WINDHAM, N.Y. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation’s (ASF) long-awaited return of its winter season will be put on hold, as daily lessons for what was scheduled to be the opening weekend of December 10 and 11 have been canceled due to lack of snow.
Although Windham Mountain remains open during this unseasonably warm period in early December, the available terrain is not appropriate for the ASF students’ first time on snow this season. This is the second consecutive year that Mother Nature failed to cooperate on the ASF’s opening weekend, as rain and lightning halted the first day of lessons last season.
As Windham Mountain continues to make snow and expand its trail count, the weekend of December 17 and 18 is now scheduled to be the program’s opening weekend. The weather forecast for Windham this upcoming week looks more wintery, as temperatures are supposed to dip again and there’s even some predictions of snowfall on the mountain.
The Adaptive Sports Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides profound and life changing experiences for children and adults with physical disabilities, cognitive disabilities and chronic illnesses through outdoor physical activity, education, support and community.
