The Adaptive Snowsports Program is for adults and children with disabilities who want to learn how to ski and snowboard. First-timers needn’t worry; lessons range from “Never-Ever” to the advanced skier or snowboarder. Lesson and adaptive equipment are included. The duration of the lesson is usually 1.5 hours, depending on the student. Payment is required at the time of reservation.

Advanced registration is required and the program has limited availability. Reservations may be made 30 days in advance or by phone or mail. Blackout dates (Christmas Week, Martin Luther King Weekend and President’s Week) will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

You should plan on arriving at the Bear Den Learning Center at least 1-1.5 hours prior to your scheduled lesson or program to ensure you have enough time for tickets and rentals.

Operational Updates


  • For this year the program will start and remain outside, for the entirety of the lesson.

Cancellation Policy

A Snowsports School Director, Adaptive Snowsports Director, or Supervisor has the right to cancel any lesson if, in their opinion, the student’s current conditions would present an unreasonable risk to the student and/or snow conditions would do the same. We request that you give us at least 7 days’ notice if you are unable to fulfill your lesson reservation. The Adaptive Program Director makes the determination on instructor requirements. For additional information please contact.
