Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports opens its new $1.3 million headquarters this week at Pico. Officials say the new space will make it much easier for athletes in wheelchairs and those with other special needs to ski, bike, kayak and enjoy the outdoors.
Founded in 1987, the nonprofit moved its administrative offices to Pico in 1999.
The ski resort donated space, but as the adaptive program grew, things got tight.
Rutland resident Paula McNeill, an avid skier who severed her spine in a snowmobiling accident in 2010 was among a growing number of clients.
