ASF to Hold Summer Ski and Snowboard Lessons at Big SNOW American Dream

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) is once again partnering with Big SNOW American Dream to host adaptive ski and snowboard lessons this summer in the indoor ski resort in the American Dream Mall.

Big SNOW American Dream is North America’s first indoor, real-snow ski and snowboard center that provides snow sport enthusiasts a chance to participate in winter activities all year round. The ASF has been hosting indoor lessons at Big SNOW since 2021. This year’s lessons will take place every second Tuesday and Wednesday of each month from June-September. Each day will have two two-hour lesson slots: one from 4-6 p.m. and another from 6-8 p.m.

“Big SNOW American Dream creates an opportunity for our students to get on the snow in the offseason and continue to hone their skills. As the saying goes, ‘the better you get, the better it gets’ and Big SNOW gives our students a chance to continue their growth,” ASF Executive Director John Iannelli explained. “Also, what better place to introduce snow sports to new people? The proximity to the Tri-State area, they have all the rental equipment a new skier could possibly need as well as our adaptive equipment, and parents can watch their child’s lesson from inside. It’s the perfect place to learn how to ski and snowboard in the summer months.”

The Adaptive Sports Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides profound and life-changing experiences for children and adults with physical disabilities, cognitive disabilities and chronic illnesses through outdoor physical activity, education, support and community.

The ASF’s first lesson at Big SNOW is set for Tuesday, June 13. The ASF requests that lessons are reserved no later than three weeks prior to the desired lesson date. For more information on ASF’s adaptive ski and snowboard lessons at Big SNOW American Dream, please visit
