Schweitzer Mountain – March 11, 2017

SKI for MS (formerly Vertical Express) is a day-long community skiing fundraiser benefiting people with multiple sclerosis. We bring people together at Schweitzer Mountain and many other ski areas across the country to help people with MS and their families thrive!

Everyone is connected to a person with MS. Join the Jimmie Heuga Express and show your support for the MS community!

SKI for MS activities are a blast!

  • Race your friends in the Amateur Ski Race
  • Challenge yourself during the paintball shooting and snow bike competitions 
  • Band together with your team for the Jimmie Heuga Memorial Ski Down, honoring US Olympian, MS pioneer, and Can Do MS founder
  • Celebrate with your friends over adult beverages, top prizes, and awards at the Celebration Awards Banquet with live and silent auctions!
  • The theme for the Celebration Awards Banquet is "Rock On" for Can Do MS! Dress up as your favorite singer or group from any era and strut your stuff for the costume contest.

  • Sign up & raise $150 to receive a one-day lift ticket, all on-mountain activities, t-shirt, and dinner & beverages at the Celebration Awards Banquet!
  • Recruit your team of three people and compete together in the mountain activities
