Adaptive Private Lessons
we offer adaptive ski lessons designed to empower skiers with disabilities. Our mission is simple: we’re here to help you develop new skills and boost your self-confidence. We strive to create an atmosphere that produces positive physical, psychological, and therapeutic results.
Our adaptive lessons are available daily at 12 PM and 2 PM, with each session spanning two hours.
Additionally, during the peak season, we also offer a 10 AM session based on availability.
Private Lessons for Cognitive Stand-Up Students
For some stand-up students new to the sport, particularly those on the autism spectrum, we recommend a one-hour private lesson at 9 AM. This early morning session ensures a tailored experience to help you get comfortable and confident on the slopes. When you’re ready to book your private lesson, simply complete and submit our online reservation request form, and our knowledgeable staff will guide you through the best options for your needs.
All our adaptive instructors are PSIA members and trained in adaptive ski techniques.
