Waterville Valley Resorts’ Adaptive Snowsports program is a special part of Waterville Valley where physically and mentally challenged children and adults team up with extraordinary volunteers and learn to fly - at least that's how our students describe the freedom of sliding down a snowy slope unencumbered by a wheelchair or braces.
The Waterville Adaptive Program, which is a 501 © (3) non-profit organization, was founded in 1992 by Kathy Chandler, a PSIA-Certified Adaptive Examiner and former Ski School director. Today the program is guided by over eighty dedicated and highly-trained volunteer instructors who teach lessons seven days a week.
Group and private lessons are available any day, including holiday periods. Daily lesson prices range from $65 to $95, and include an all-mountain lift ticket, the use of specially designed adaptive ski equipment, and one-on-one instruction. Seasonal programs, race training for Special Olympics and Paralympic Sports are ongoing all season long. To see a schedule go to the website at watervilleadaptive.com. We also offer cross country skiing on The Adventure Center's 70km tracked and groomed trail network.
