The Grand Targhee Adaptive Program is designed to create ski and snowboarding opportunities for individuals with a disability or in need of special assistance. We utilize special equipment and teaching techniques to make every experience fun, successful and safe. We guarantee a one-to-one student teacher ratio for all adaptive lessons. Each lesson is built around the unique goals and needs of the student. To facilitate this, each lesson begins with a student assessment and indoor equipment set-up. This takes approximately 30 minutes and is a necessary step towards success on the snow. We recognize the important role adaptive sports can play in bringing families together.
