The Woodstock Inn and Resort and Suicide Six Ski Resort
Special Olympics Vermont’s Winter Games is truly a highlight among our 14 competitions. This annual three-day competition takes place in historic Woodstock, Vermont where hundreds of members from the community join together to make the experience ever-lasting for all involved. At our Winter Games we offer four winter sports for our athletes to compete in:
The competition kicks off on Friday with our School Unified Sports snowshoeing competition. On Friday night at 7:00 pm at the Woodstock Town Green we hold our official Opening Ceremonies. We announce each delegation that will be competing and will hear a few words from Governor Peter Shumlin. Our athletes then head to The Woodstock Inn and Resort to get some much needed shut eye for Saturday and Sunday’s competition.
At our Winter Games on Saturday night, we also hold our Annual Awards Banquet where we present individuals and organizations with awards for their efforts from the previous year. A complete list of previous award recipients through 2010 can be found here.
