The St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City, Utah is gearing up for the winter season with its “Quintessential Skiing Experience With Chris Waddell” package. This exclusive package designed for corporate groups and families was created with help from the Hall of Fame Paralympic skier.
This December, groups that book this packages will get a personal meet and greet will Waddell during a welcome reception or dinner, a 60-minute keynote speaking address followed by a Q&A session, as well as a full-day group ski experience led by Waddell on the slopes of Deer Valley (excludes the cost of lift tickets). Packages start at $15,000 and can be customized to meet the needs of the group.
Waddell was the first nearly unassisted paraplegic person to summit Mount Kilimanjaro in 2009, which resulted in an acclaimed film documenting the climb. He has been honored with many top awards including Skiing Magazine’s “The 25 Greatest Skiers in North America,” and one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.” The Dalai Lama has also recognized him as an “Unsung Hero of Compassion.” In addition to being a ski legend, he also holds a world championship title in track.
Waddell has spent a lot of time at The Five Diamond Award-winning St. Regis Deer Valley as the Chief Inspiration Officer, spreading his message of positivity to motivate groups.
In 2008, Waddell founded the One Revolution foundation, an organization dedicated to changing the public’s perception of people with disabilities.
