Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Maximize the number of visually impaired skiers that we can provide recreational skiing opportunities to.

Marketing through contacts with other organizations serving the blind, with Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council, and through our web site, ABSF.org

Our ski guides must attend an intensive clinic every 2 years, and be subject to supervision from the Guide Training Committee

We still need to make the visually impaired community aware of our services through enhanced marketing, i.e. to increase our membership. WE also need to increase our revenue streams to further reduce the costs of events to our visually impaired and blind participants.
