The Adaptive Sports Foundation’s work promotes physical activity for children and adults with disabilities by offering winter activities for recreational skiing and snowboarding. The mainstay of the ASF Winter Program is alpine skiing and snowboarding. Our students check in for their lesson, are fitted for their equipment, and meet their instructor right here in the Adaptive Sports Center. The slopes of Windham Mountain are easily accessed just out the door of the Center. People with cognitive or physical disabilities who are five years or older can participate.
