The goal of Perfect North Slopes' Adaptive Program is to enhance the lives of children and adults with disabilities and special needs through outdoor recreation. This program enables individuals to develop new skills, build self-confidence and enjoy the sport of skiing in a safe, fun and positive environment. As a vital part of Perfect North Slopes' Snow Sports School, all of our Adaptive Instructors are specially trained and use PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) adaptive teaching techniques.
We serve individuals with a wide array of disabilities including (but not limited to) vision and hearing impairments, amputees, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophies, birth defects, paralysis and cognitive disabilities. Your experience will be individually designed for your own personal experience.
All Adaptive Lessons include private instruction, adaptive equipment rental, and a lift ticket. All lessons should be paid for on the day of the scheduled lesson, prior to lesson start time.
