What is Teton Adaptive Sports?
Teton Adaptive Sports (TAS) was formed in the spring of 2005. Our mission is to promote and support sports and recreation opportunities for people with disabilities living in and visiting the Greater Teton Area. TAS was initially created as a support organization for the Adaptive Ski Programs at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Grand Targhee Resort; to provide funding for adaptive ski equipment, instructor training, and financial assistance for individuals taking adaptive ski lessons. The summer of 2008 marked efforts by Teton Adaptive Sports to encourage and assist with the development of year round adaptive opportunities. Our model is to partner with existing recreation providers to enhance their ability to deliver a quality experience, while developing our own “in house” possibilities. The core TAS belief is that active participation in sports and recreation promotes individuals’ physical strength, develops confidence and self esteem, forges relationships, and contributes to a level of enjoyment and quality of life that otherwise might not be experienced.

Grand Targhee Adaptive Sports Program
Grand Targhee Resort offers a comprehensive adaptive ski school program that includes lessons, equipment and instruction. The resort partners with Teton Adaptive Sports and Yostmark Mountain Equipment on their adaptive programs.
