Woodward hosts Special Olympics Young Athletes Ski Day
PARK CITY, Utah — The second annual Young Athletes Ski Day at Woodward Park City was a success, with 28 students from five elementary schools coming together to participate in this fun day on the slopes.
The participants were a mix of Special Olympics of Utah (SOUT) athletes and Unified partners, creating an inclusive sports experience for all.
Many students had never skied or snowboarded, so the event was particularly exciting for them. “They were thrilled to introduce them to these winter sports and provide them with a new and thrilling experience,” said a statement from SOUT.
With the help of 15 dedicated volunteers and SOUT staff, the Young Athletes Ski Day ran smoothly, and provided a safe and supportive environment for all participants.
Brady Johnson, a photographer and SOUT athlete, was on hand to capture the excitement on the slopes, taking photos of the participants as they made their way down the hill.
The event provided a unique opportunity for young athletes to come together, try something new, and have a great time in a safe and inclusive environment.
