Warren Miller movie, Dec. 4, 5; and helping disabled skiers

After my Record article and blog a few days ago about Dodge Ridge and Bear Valley skiing, I was contacted by Carolyn Gomes of Society for Disabilities in Modesto. Both the December 4 and 5 Warren Miller ski movie showings may interest you, and some of you might be intrigued with volunteering to help disabled skiers at Dodge Ridge come January.

Here’s Carolyn’s press release, with all the details on both the movies, and volunteering:

Hello! Happy Holidays!

Volunteers work with skiers with disabilities.

Seeking volunteers: Here at Society for disABILTIES we have an adaptive winter ski program that is always short of volunteers. Please share information about our program with your skiing colleagues, friends and family. The winter ski program is 6 times a season, two Saturdays each in January, February and March (when there is snow).

We are always looking for intermediate and advanced skiers to volunteer and help those with disabilities experience winter ski. For every participant we have we need 4 ski volunteers.

We are actively recruiting so that there is enough volunteers to allow the volunteer some personal ski time. As of now, that doesn’t happen very often. This program is held at Dodge Ridge. Matt Tilford runs the Winter Ski program and can give you “skier” details.

Warren Miller movie comes to Modesto on Dec. 4 and 5

Warren Miller ski movie, Dec. 4 and 5: To support the Winter Ski program each year we have the Warren Miller film fundraiser. This year’s dates are Friday December 4 and Saturday December 5. There are two shows each day. Friday’s shows are at 6:30 pm and 9:00 pm and Saturday’s are 4:00 pm and 7:30 pm (note these shows are around the City of Modesto Christmas parade). Tickets are $20 per person.

With your ticket purchase and attending the movie you receive a free ski lift ticket to Bear Valley. Please see below for the film’s trailer and more Warren Miller “ Chasing Shadows” information.
