Ski & Snowboard Club Information

The Gaylord Sports Association Ski & Snowboard club provides adaptive athletes the opportunity to ski or snowboard with adaptive ski and snowboard instructors. We offer six trips each season January through March on either Saturday afternoon or Monday evening. We continue to partner with Ski Sundown in New Hartford, CT for all of our trips and in 2023 with their new adaptive sports program, SUMMIT Adaptive Sports! SUMMIT Adaptive utilizes the same instructors as previous years and we are excited to see this new organization thrive! To learn more about SUMMIT Adaptive, visit their website at

SUMMIT 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 SUMMIT 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.

Trips include transportation from Gaylord Hospital to the mountain. Please note that some restrictions apply for this program. An annual doctor’s note is required and there is a $50 fee for lessons. Come enjoy the slopes with us!
