Vail Mountain – February 18, 2017

SKI for MS (formerly Vertical Express) is a day-long community skiing fundraiser benefiting people with multiple sclerosis. We bring people together at Vail 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
  • Explore the mountain during the Scavenger Hunt
  • 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 Après Party! New skis and more for top prizes.

  • Register for $25 for all on-mountain activities and the Après Party (Online registration closes at 5pm on 2/17. Please find us at Gondola One from 8am to 10am on 2/18 to register for the day.)
  • Raise $350 for VIP treatment including a one-day lift ticket, all on-mountain activities, t-shirt, and two drinks at the Après Party!
