Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks (ASSP) provides opportunities for people of all ages, living with a disability, to participate in adaptive snow sports and recreation programs at Sun Peaks Resort. One of the primary goals of ASSP is to allow school students with a disability experience the freedom, joy and satisfaction of skiing or snowboarding with their classmates. ASSP also welcomes many out of town, provincial, national and international guests each season, with several returning to what is now known as an adaptive snowsports destination resort.
Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks offers the following options for people with a disability who are 6 years of age and older:
- Learn to ski/snowboard lessons for stand up skiers and riders, sit-ski lessons, 3-track lessons for leg amputees, 4-track for those with leg weakness, lessons for sight and hearing impaired, and persons with intellectual and cognitive disabilities. Persons with age related, and mental health disabilities are also welcome.
- School program to assist students with a disability to participate in school sponsored programs.
- Adaptive Nordic lessons will be available at a later date.
All out of town guests and local students are required to purchase a membership with BC Adaptive Snowsports (BCAS) at a cost of $53 for participants and $48 for Volunteers. Membership may be purchased online here https://www.bcadaptive.com/content/membership-signup, and can be paid by cheque or credit card. The membership is valid for the entire year and is transferrable to most Canadian Resorts. Your membership provides you with liability insurance coverage during the duration of your adaptive lesson, half price lift tickets and 20% discount on rental equipment at Sun Peaks Rentals. Please note that this membership does not include medical insurance coverage. BCAS membership needs to be purchased prior to our online lesson registration, as you will be asked for your membership number when registering for the Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks Program lessons.
Membership in Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks Society is also required of all students and volunteers at a nominal cost of $10.00 per season and will be added to your total lesson account.
