Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We intend to serve an increasing number of people with disabilities by providing them with safe, inclusive and meaningful sports and outdoor recreational activities.

We continue to offer sports and outdoor recreation that serve the broadest number of people and that can be pursued independently once basic skills are developed.

As we have done for over 50 years, we employ and train staff and volunteers with skills and experience in the specific sports we offer. We maintain up-to-date and safe adaptive equipment and utilize safe and accessible venues.

With a 50 year history we have been at the forefront of the development of adaptive sports and outdoor recreation. In the next 50 years we will continue to implement state-of-the-art adaptive techniques and equipment, retain and train safe and professional instructors and expand our program offerings to additional ski resorts and summer venues.
