Project Description

We invite you to get involved in our winter ski & snowboard program! We offer adaptive lessons and equipment for all ability levels.


All lessons are available in a one-on-one or a small group setting. A team of professional adaptive instructors and trained volunteers are available to meet your needs. On-snow volunteers accompany all sit-down skiers and those needing additional assistance during and after the lesson. Ski-buddy services are available for independent skiers and guiding services are available for hearing or visually-impaired skiers. It is recommended to book lessons at least one month prior to your scheduled visit so TASP can ensure lesson availability and appropriate skill level.
