Heavenly Adaptive Ski Programs

Heavenly Adaptive Skier

Update 4/6/2016: Heavenly's Ski & Ride School will be closing the afternoon of April 17th. Although the resort will be operating through April 24th, lessons will not be available this final week of the season.

At Heavenly, we believe everyone should have access to the thrill of skiing and riding. That's why we offer a comprehensive adaptive ski and ride program taught by specially trained instructors. Our goal is to provide personalized instruction for guests with disabilities to help build confidence and a love for snowsports in a safe environment.

Read below for more information about the variety of adaptive disciplines we offer. To book your lesson, please call 530-542-6904.

When you book an adaptive ski/ride lesson at Heavenly, you'll be provided with a trained expert, specialized equipment and one-on-one focus to help you meet your skiing/riding goals. Our highly trained staff will help you develop your skills, fit you with appropriate adaptive equiptment, teach you how to properly use the equipment and show you how to have a great time on the slopes with a focus on safety.

Heavenly adaptive instructors are trained to teach guests in seven areas:

• Cognative: neurological
• Bi ski: disability of legs and arms
• Mono ski: disability of legs but strong upper body
• Snowboard stand up: all other disabilities but able to stand
• Three track: disability of one leg
• Four track: disability of both legs, but can stand with assistance
• Blind or low vision

Our goal is to tailor the lesson to meet your personal needs and goals.

We offer a variety of equipment made to fit our adaptive student's needs. The first 30 minutes of your lesson will be spent getting you dialed in with all the right equipment while we teach you about proper use and safety.

Just some of the adative equipment we offer include: bi-skis in child, junior and adult sizes, blind and guide bibs, ski-tip stabilizers, reigns and outriggers are used for stand-up skiers, and mono-skis with large and medium seat capability. Adaptive equipment is provided as part of the adaptive lesson and is not available for rental outside the Ski and Ride School.

The Heavenly Ski & Ride School provides personalized adaptive ski instruction at a discounted rate for all disciplines of adaptive snowsports. To book a lesson, call us at 1.800.Heavenly option 7.
