Looking for partners for our 2021 season! Dock Drive Fundraiser!

By |2021-01-29T10:11:06-05:00January 29th, 2021|Events|0 Comments

We are raising money to support our Adaptive Ski Days and SwaterSki events as well as our general skiing at Point Breeze.

Why Docks? Well we saw that with the Adaptive Ski Event the docks at PB aren’t wide enough for wheelchair access. We also saw at Swaterski that they are very big, heavy and require a small army to move.

In order to do more events and to be safe – we really need wider docks that we can take in and out with just a […]

SwaterSki postponed to Dec 12, over $12,000 raised!

By |2020-12-03T16:57:06-05:00December 3rd, 2020|Events|0 Comments

Unfortunately, it looks like the weather is not going to allow us to ski this weekend (Dec 5th) – as we expect heavy rain and winds.     After chatting it over with the Menard family, we have decided to postpone all skiing activities until December 12th.     It looks like next week turns colder, so we hope that the snow gods will allow Wachusett to reopen at that time. 

We still expect to meet at Point Breeze at 10:30am for registrations and a safety meeting before we waterski from 11am-1pm and then make the trip to Wachusett for snow-skiing for a […]
