Adaptive Ski or Snowboard Lessons

Do you want to learn to ski or snowboard? Depending on your skill set, there are several ways that you can ski or ride, using various types of adaptive equipment. Experience the freedom and control of gliding down the slopes! Campers will be paired with a trained, volunteer instructor for an evening of skiing or snowboarding at Snoqualmie Pass. Lessons run from 4-6pm or 7-9pm at Summit West; campers may also have the opportunity to ski for the full evening, from 4-9pm, if interested. Lift tickets are included.

Equipment Rental

Skis, boots and poles, or a snowboard and boots. A variety of sit skis and other adaptive equipment is available upon request – please inquire during registration! A snow sports helmet is included with every rental, and required for participation.

Transportation

Transportation is not available for this program. Please meet at the Outdoors for All office at Summit West, located directly below Ski Patrol, about 15 minutes before the scheduled start of your lesson.
