It was fun and games for a good cause on April Fool’s Day as the Vista Outdoor team took to the slopes in Park City, Utah. Vista Outdoor is an active partner with NAC and jumped at the chance to participate in this community event.
The Ability Snow Challenge is an event for all ages and all ski levels. In addition to ski and snowboard races, participants and spectators had the opportunity to see some of the specialized adaptive equipment used in NAC programs.
The theme of this year’s event: Denim and Diamonds. Vista’s team channeled ‘80s rock band Guns N’ Roses– and by the looks of the photograph below, you might recognize Axl Rose! Employees Dylan Ramsey (aka Axl), Employees Dylan Ramsey, Diana Gibson, Wim de Jager and Doug Brown, were joined by “Legend” and former Olympian, Doug Lewis. The team skied pretty well, but there were some seriously fast racers on the course, including multiple former Olympians and the entire University of Utah ski team. The Vista Outdoor team didn’t leave totally empty handed … Wim de Jager won The Best Dressed individual award.
