Potash Hill Hosts Vermont Special Olympians

March 12, 2024

Dozens of athletes called Potash Hill home while competing in the 2024 Special Olympics Vermont (SOV) Winter Games. We were thrilled to partner with SOV as the Olympic Village for the first statewide games since 2019.

The alpine skiing and snowboarding portion of the Winter Games took place on Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15 at The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain. The event brought together over 125 delegates, including athletes and coaches from eight programs. The delegations that competed included Addison, Central Vermont, Chittenden, Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow, Northshire, Randolph, Rutland, and Smugglers’ Notch Adaptive. 

Athletes competing in the games lived, dined, and socialized together on Potash Hill. The festivities culminated with a dinner and dance event on Potash Hill on Friday, March 15.

Special Olympics Vermont is part of a global movement that works year-round to foster the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities by using the power of sport to showcase their gifts and abilities.
