Adaptive skiing and snowboarding
Many resorts provide wonderful programs, lessons, gear, lifts and inclusive programs for children and adults with cognitive, sight/ hearing and/or physical disabilities. Steamboat’s S.T.A.R.S is a fully-inclusive program for children with special needs from 5 to15 years, and includes activities that allow the whole family to have fun together. Whistler has an extensive adaptive program for kids aged 6 years and over, across skiing and snowboarding, and Big White Adaptive Snowsports’ certified instructors ensure everybody can have fun on the slopes.
