The Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports is a non-profit charitable society focused on providing nationally certified snowsports instruction to the physically or developmentally challenged.

We believe that people with adaptive needs should have an equal opportunity to participate and enjoy alpine (skiing or snowboarding) or Nordic (cross country) snowsports.
We are here to help you accent your abilities in a fun and encouraging environment.

VISAS Awareness Day 2024 – 25 February

The VISAS Awareness Day 2023 (March 5th) will showcase our Adaptive students and instructors while educating spectators about our non-profit Society.  We are taking this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the necessary Adaptive equipment and instructor training we require to run our program.

Who Are We?

We are a non-profit organization focused on providing nationally certified instructors to assist physically or cognitively challenged people. We offer instruction in downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing. VISAS will provide all adaptive equipment and if you have your own, then we can help you rock it.

Our volunteer instructors are certified nationally with the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing (CADS). Many are also members of the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance (CSIA), the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI) and the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI).

Our volunteer group consists of 100+ Alpine, Nordic and Snowboard instructors, all dedicated to bringing the mountain experience to people with diverse abilities.
