Winter Games


Hundreds of athletes, coaches, families, and friends representing all corners of Pennsylvania participate in Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s annual Winter Games at Seven Springs Resort in Seven Springs, PA.  During the course of the event,  athletes and coaches participate in three days of exciting winter sports – competing in alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.  In addition, a few athletes will participate in a snowboarding demonstration this year. Snowboarding is an emerging winter sport for Special Olympics PA. Competition will not be offered at the State Level until training numbers meet the requirement for adding a new sport.

Weeks of hard work and dedication in training is rewarded as athletes are cheered on and supported during competition by more than 1,000 enthusiastic volunteers. This event requires volunteers from around the state to serve as officials, athlete escorts, award presenters, and in various other ways. To volunteer, contact Mike Ermer at 1-800-233-5161 x 243 or

Winter Games 2020 will take place from February 9 - 11.
