HoliMont-phoenixOn Feb. 7, the Phoenix Adaptive program held the 19th annual “Rise to the Challenge” Adaptive ski race. This year, 45 racers from Canada and the Western NY area participated.

The race gave participants a chance to show off their skiing skills to family and friends. The day ended with an awards ceremony in the main lodge.

The visiting teams always look forward to this event. Some spend the entire weekend in Ellicottville enjoying all the area has to offer. The day was a huge success thanks to the many volunteers, parents and Holimont staff that helped make it all come together.
