Moving Mountains is a coordinated effort between Pine Mountain Resort, local interested medical professionals and many dedicated volunteers. Instructors involved in the program have been trained and follow procedures of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). The program provides instruction to those with disabilities who want to enjoy the outdoors and engage in a winter sport.

Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase the highly specialized equipment required for this program, underwrite the cost of lessons and provide training for all volunteer staff. Moving Mountains is a one of a kind program in the U.P.

"This event is a chance to play on a great golf course that is maintained by professionals. You will get to experience a beautifully maintained course and have some great food plus have an opportunity to support this cause. It will benefit those handicapped individuals so that they may participate in activities that they truly enjoy," a spokesperson for the event said.
