Information for Students

Are you a person with a disability who would like to take part in fun and exciting snow sports?  Through the use of our specialized equipment and teaching techniques, our volunteer instructors provide personalized lessons to individuals of all ages and skill-levels. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for everyone, regardless of ability, to experience the joy and freedom of sliding on the snow. Our regular lessons occur on Sundays at Fernie Alpine Resort.
