Did you know that Violet is a downhill skier?Violet is always eager to play sports that she sees her family enjoy playing. Thanks to Achieve Tahoe Violet skied at Northstar this month with her entire family - her mom, dad, sister, brother (and cousin Charlie too!). And it was not the beginner slope - Violet was skiing on the advanced beginner slope. She wanted more speed than the Big Easy slope could offer!
While Violet’s determination and playful spirit helped her achieve this milestone, she could not have done it without the dedication of Achieve Tahoe’s volunteers (Elizabeth, Patti and Sharon!) and the slider equipment that Achieve Tahoe brought to Northstar that allowed Violet to feel the freedom of skiing down the slopes.
We are so grateful for Achieve Tahoe and the opportunity and memories they have given Violet and our family. We hope you will join us in cheering on Violet at the Ability Challenge and helping Achieve Tahoe continue to provide these opportunities to anyone who has a dream of skiing down a mountain!
