Making the Mountain 
Experience Accessible to All!


Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks (ASSP) runs on the power of volunteers.💪 With over 55 volunteer instructors, we are able to provide weekly ski and snowboard lessons to students living with disabilities. We offer opportunities to individuals who come to the resort from as close to home as Kamloops & Sun Peaks, as well as from all over the province, country, and around the world. 🌍

Since our inception in 2007, ASSP has acquired a vast range of adaptive equipment through fundraising efforts fueled by community support. 🔥

To keep our equipment maintained and up to date, we need your support to ensure we can continue to offer the very best adaptive lessons using the very best, highly tuned equipment available.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and this year it’s scheduled for November 29th. We’d like to encourage you to support our Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign by donating to our equipment maintenance drive, you’ll guarantee our fleet stays well-tuned throughout the 2023 season!
