My story with Eagle Mount is a long time of reciving and giving. I first started with Eagle Mount and their adaptive skiing program as a participant because I am a paraplegic. The volunteers were giving everything they had to try and teach me this new and very difficult sport. As I was recieving their teachings I became better and better and the program was growing bigger and bigger. After a few years of recieving I recived my very own mono-ski which I still fly down the slopes today. You see all their giving taught me how to become an advanced skiier. I was no longer in need of their teaching. I went skiing to other resorts and still skied at Showdown (the resort Eagle Mount uses) for a few years when I finially realized I was ready to start my giving. This is when Eagle Mount asked me if I would like to be a volunteer with their program. I was more than excited to work with others to help them to become better skiiers and have a great time. The only problem was I couldn't do much physicall work with the participants, but we were noticing they were not quite a scared of the lifts or going down a mountain when I was by their side so we decided my role with Eagle Mount was to be the "Motivatior", a label I was more than happy to be called. I can not thank Eagle Mount enough for all the giving and recieving that I have had in the last 12 years and I can only hope that many more can expeirence what I did.
Thank you,
George Young

Eagle Mount is AMAZING! They have a wheelchair accessible playground that is truly accessible. My daughter has been involved in hippotherapy (horse riding therapy) since she was 4 (she is now 9). Watching her build her core strength and begin to communicate with the horse and the volunteers, is a delight to watch. She and I also took part in a mommy-and-me creative movement class that was so much fun, we never thought about how therapeutic it was. Another one of my daughter's favorite activities is skiing. The volunteers who help with the sit-ski are so friendly and thoughtful. Madi is very comfortable with them, and they are conscientious of our family's desire to ski as a family. This summer, we are looking forward to attending a day campy, where my daughter can take part in different activities, and socialize with other kids like her. My family has become a part of the Eagle Mount family. I can't say enough great things about the organization.

There are many reasons that Eagle Mount exceeds expectations! Our daughter has been able to ski downhill, play hockey, bowl, ride horses, and attend a day camp during that summer that would accept her. Amazing people that run it and volunteer for it. I would recommend this fantastic place to anyone with special needs! And our daughter is at an age that she thrives being around other people with similar abilities.

The Great!

Our daughter being able to spend time around others with similiar abilities is priceless. She is so happy when she comes home from activities, and wants to participate in everything they offer.

That they have more money to do more programs!
