Development Resources

If you are interested in getting involved in alpine skiing, you can take lessons with many ski schools around the country. Look for ski schools that have adaptive programs or instructors with special training on how to teach athletes with physical disabilities. Most alpine ski resorts have adaptive ski schools, so you can go to your local ski area. It may be a good idea to call the ski school first to see if they have an adaptive program. To find a local program in your community, visit our Find A Club page.
