We invite you to get involved in our winter ski & snowboard program! We offer adaptive lessons and equipment for all ability levels.

Lessons

All lessons are available in a one-on-one or a small group setting. A team of professional adaptive instructors and trained volunteers are available to meet your needs. On-snow volunteers accompany all sit-down skiers and those needing additional assistance during and after the lesson. Ski-buddy services are available for independent skiers and guiding services are available for hearing or visually-impaired skiers. It is recommended to book lessons at least one month prior to your scheduled visit so TASP can ensure lesson availability and appropriate skill level.

***Please Note: TASP is proud to be an intentionally smaller adaptive snowsports program. This allows us to customize your experience at TASP with a high level of individualized customer service. In doing so, we have a limited number of adaptive instructors per day, especially during high visitation times. Please try to make your reservation as soon as possible, reservations are taken on a first come, first serve basis. Last minute requests or adjustments are extremely difficult to accommodate, our staff will work hard to accommodate all your lesson requests but at times they may not all be possible.

Winter/Summer Cancellation & Illness Policy

Students are expected to stay home and not participate in TASP programs if they are sick. Cold and flu-like symptoms are challenging to distinguish from one illness to the next and we appreciate you joining us in our commitment to conservative health and safety responses.  TASP will gladly give a credit towards a future booking Winter 22/23 or Summer 2023 if the student cancels because of illness. Please do not come to TASP on your scheduled day if you have a fever over 100 degrees, coughing, shortness of breath, excessive runny nose, sore throat, etc…

If a student arrives to TASP and if at any time through the lesson that students health is in question TASP reserves the right to terminate that lesson with no refund for the day. Please do not come to TASP if the student is not feeling well or presents as sick.

Down payments of $25/lesson ($100/lesson if private) are nonrefundable, unless a participant is ill and communicates this to our staff in advance of the lesson. Otherwise, if you cancel within 48 hours of the start of your scheduled lesson, then you will be charged 1/2 of your lesson cost.  If you do not call nor do you show up for your scheduled lesson, you will automatically be charged the full lesson amount the day of your scheduled lesson.

TASP charges a seasonal, one-time, truly nonrefundable $10 registration fee.

In the event that TASP cancels your lesson(s) we will gladly refund any down payment(s) previously processed (exempt $10 registration fee). This may be due to staff shortages due to illness or injury.

Cancellation of any trips booked with a partnering organization will be up to the partnering organization and communicated to participants at the time of booking.

If you have any questions please contact the office at 970-728-3865.

Eligibility for an Adaptive Season Pass

To qualify for an Adaptive Ski Pass an individual must be legally blind, deaf, or have a permanent physical or cognitive disability that requires the use of adaptive ski equipment or adaptive ski techniques to ski. For more information, please visit the Adaptive Season Pass Guidelines page.  Having a disability or illness alone does not constitute approval for an adaptive ski pass.
