Adaptive Program

Adaptive Program Tethering

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.

Call Gail Tagan at (860) 482-2931 to make an adaptive lesson reservation. Payment for reservations are paid to Catamount. Cancellations or no-shows prior to 24 hours are subject to a $25 fee.


Reservations must be made in advance and can be made by contacting Gail Tagan by phone.
