Ski & Snowboard Club Information

This program provides adaptive athletes the opportunity to ski or snowboard with or without the use of adaptive equipment with trained ski and snowboard instructors. The program is organized by the Gaylord Sports Association and provides six trips each season. Trips include a lesson, equipment, and limited transportation. We partner with STRIDE Adaptive Sports and Ski Sundown to offer this program. 

STRIDE Adaptive Sports organizes the adaptive ski and snowboard program at Ski Sundown. Each lesson includes a 2.5 hour individualized lesson, specialized and/or standard ski and snowboard equipment rental and a lift ticket.  The lesson includes time to get fitted for ski/snowboard equipment and to discuss your individual needs and preferences with your ski/snowboard coach. The STRIDE ski and snowboard coaches have been extensively trained in all disabilities and how to adapt to all learning styles.  All lessons are located at Ski Sundown in New Hartford, Connecticut.
