The Adaptive program at Catamount provides ski and snowboard lessons to individuals of all ages with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities. Catamount partners with STRIDE Adaptive Sports, a nonprofit adaptive skiing and recreation organization for individuals with disabilities. Our Adaptive volunteer coaches are PSIA-trained and will assess, equip and teach individuals with special needs, one-on-on, to meet their specific goals, abilities and learning styles. We welcome individuals of all abilities! **Due to Covid-19 policies, we may be modifying lesson times and procedures. We encourage Shadow lessons for family skiing and ‘touchless’ instruction.
For participation in our Adaptive Lesson Program:
Register online by completing the STRIDE registration form and Move United waiver prior to making a reservation with STRIDE.
