ADAPTIVE SNOWSPORT LESSONS FOR ALPINE, NORDIC/CROSS COUNTRY AND SNOWBOARDING

Due to COVID 19 many of our procedures have changed.

Please read both the Student information letter here and the VISAS Return to Sports plan here.

If you are sure you can comply with the VISAS RTS plan and meet all the MWAR COVID restrictions and don’t need to use the VISAS room before or after your lesson, go to Snowline to register your request for lessons.

Student registration opens Dec.1st. 

VISAS lessons begin Jan.4th.

Student lesson acceptance confirmation will be sent after registration and survey information is received.

Please ensure you have your BCAS membership in place after you have received acceptance for your lesson request. 

Please be advised VISAS will not utilize ’ski bubble friends’ as was recently introduced by CADS.   The associated training and liability issues are beyond what our volunteer organization can support at this time.

Wondering if adaptive skiing / snowboarding’s for you? Most of our students ask themselves that question at first. Just like anything else, getting good at something is usually the outcome of practice and a number of steps.
