"Niños on Skis"

Each year Father Bob Bussen and Saint Mary’s Catholic Church host a

ski program called "Niños on Skis". The program pairs Hispanic children in grades 2 to 5 with sponsoring families from the community. Park City Mountain Resort provides season ski passes for the Niños. Sponsors ski with their partnered children during the three Saturdays of the program. PCMR provides lift tickets for sponsors for the three days. It is helpful for sponsors to have ski passes at Park City Mountain Resort as it allows them to take their partners skiing as often as desired. The Niños speak English.
