We all share similar passions in our pursuit downhill on snow. That feeling of movment and wind on the face or the energy pushing out of a well-placed carve. It's often that we overlook the joy something as simple as sliding on snow can give us, but we must remember to step back and appreciate this gift that has been passed on to us, and encourage anyone to enjoy those same sensations. With that, we'd like to acknowledge the dedication of both our staff and students in our Adaptive Ski Program.
Our new adaptive program provides lessons for people with a variety of different disabilities from ages 3 and up. Our instructors are trained in how to work with people with disabilities on the hill and how to adapt the lesson to meet the needs of each student.
We provide lessons to people with a variety of different disabilities such as (but not limited to) autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral palsy, Spina bifida, spinal cord injuries, TBI, visual impairments, and more. We start with a physical evaluation to determine the equipment needs to set each student up for success. Then the lesson moves out to the snow where the fun continues.
