New England Blind & VI Ski Festival


Each February, Maine Adaptive hosts the New England Blind & VI Ski Festival (NEVI Fest) at Sugarloaf in Carrabassett Valley.  This 4-day camp is designed to teach people with visual impairments to ski, or ski better and to teach anyone interested in becoming a guide on the slopes the skills to do so.

February 7-11, 2016

NEW THIS YEAR:  This winter you can choose the Alpine Camp or the Nordic (cross-country ski) Camp of NEVI Fest.  The Alpine Track takes place at Sugarloaf Mountain while the Nordic Track begins and ends at Sugarloaf, but includes an overnight ski out to a Maine Huts & Trails hut.
