Welcome Athletes and Guardians...

About the Gateway Disabled Ski Program

Our goal is to provide the thrill of skiing and snowboarding to athletes of all ages and abilities.  Through the use of adaptive equipment and instruction, we are able to erase  any possible boundaries or limitations to meet the needs of athletes across a vast spectrum of functional ability levels, and provide an environment that promotes success and independence - both on and off the slopes!  Anyone with the will and desire to have fun and excel at skiing is welcome to join our program!!

Family & Friends

Family and friends are welcome to participate and observe, but please follow the guidelines below.

Family Assistance

  • Parents and others are welcome to assist in the program, but MUST complete Volunteer Registration and have a DASA Pass or other valid Hidden Valley Pass.
  • The primary focus of the instruction will remain with the athlete with disabilities.   Family and friends seeking instruction for personal skiing abilities should seek other opportunities to build skills outside the focus of adaptive instruction techniques.

Family Observation

  • Family and friends that are not registered members of the program and/or occupants of a valid Hidden Valley Pass are welcome to observe the sessions, however, such guests MUST remain off the hill and clear from any areas beyond the edge of the snow.  This is for personal safety, and that of other visitors at Hidden Valley.
