Anne Bethune

North Vancouver, British Columbia

For 28 years, Anne has been the driving force behind the growth of Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports. This organization enables those with disabilities to experience skiing and boarding at Seymour, Cypress and Grouse Mountains. Anne’s contributions cannot be underestimated. She has given over 25,000 lesson, certified instructors, created an adaptive race program and fundraised tirelessly. Her success can be summed up by Canadian Olympian Steve Podborski who wrote “Anne has created a place for those who have lost so much, enabling them to fly and play and learn and enjoy our great Canadian winter”.
