Special Needs Skiing

windhamSkiing is a sport that allows children develop self-confidence and to experience a sense of freedom that can be found nowhere else other then on a ski hill. Skiing gives special needs children the opportunity to be independent and responsible for themselves with the freedom of a multi-acre playground. Adaptive ski lessons “adapt” it for special needs children and are usually deeply discounted private lessons. ADHD children that can’t sit still in a classroom will work hard on the ski hill and release that additional energy with private instruction. More and more resorts have Adaptive Ski programs. Adaptive Sports at Windham Mountain, NY and the National Sports Center in Winter Park, CO are examples of great programs. If you are traveling to Vermont, many resorts have adaptive programs and are affiliated with the Vermont Adaptive Ski School.
