Sierra At Tahoe Adaptive Lessons Skiing and Snowboarding

We are proud to offer adaptive lessons for both physical and intellectual disabilities for children ages 7+ and adults. Adapting skin and snowboarding can allow people to experience a sense of freedom that is difficult to duplicate in other sports. Snow sports can be a fantastic sport for people with cognitive, visual or physical disabilities, in that it helps to develop balance, fitness, self-confidence, motivation, and social skills while providing sensory regulating input. We strive to create an atmosphere which produces a positive physical, psychological and therapeutic experience.

Lesson Types

Sierra’s instructors are trained to teach in the following lesson types: cognitive, neurological, blind or low vision, and ski or snow board stand up and bi-ski.

Adaptive equipment and teaching techniques are utilized to help students with balance, coordination, motor control, sequencing, communication, and processing challenges to achieve independence in stand-up skiing and snowboarding.

Our private adaptive lessons are offered by reservations only please call our snow sports reservation line at 530-659-7453 x 183.
