Summer Adaptive Sports Programs in Jackson Hole
Safety is at the forefront of all of our adaptive sports programs. Our instructors and volunteers have extensive training in safety and it guides all of our decisions and actions. Strict program evaluation and certification from our parent organization Disabled Sports USA also directs safety.
If it’s not fun, why do it? All of our programs have an element of fun, even if they sometimes push our athletes. Whether the athletes are fishing on a still mountain lake on a sunny day or dropping in to a steep ski line in a snowstorm, there will be smiles all around!
Sports and recreation have a sneaky way of teaching athletes lessons far beyond the activity at hand. We encourage athletes to learn all they can about our sporting programs before they start and reflect on what it taught them afterwards. Our staff and volunteers regularly do trainings to enhance their knowledge.
Adaptive Cycling Program
The Teton Adaptive Sports Cycling Program features several ways to get adaptive athletes out on the top-notch trail systems in Jackson Hole, both on the pathways and off road on trails. We offer off road mountain biking lessons for adaptive individuals of groups, plus a number of demo options where people can ‘rent’ an adaptive bike for use on their own.
Summer Adventure Days
Summer Adventure Days is a unique adaptive adventure package that allows disabled people to take part in many of the summer activities all people do here in Jackson Hole. Paddle Days, cycling, climbing, backcountry paddling, fishing, and even a food tour on bikes are some of the fun that can be had during the summer months.
Peak Achievement Grants
Have a special adventure planned to complete in the Greater Teton area? Give us a jingle to see whether we can support you in some way. Past Peak Achievement Grant adaptive adventures included the first blind climber to the reach the top of the Grand Teton and a one-armed athlete who completed the “Picnic triathlon” in Grand Teton National Park. You dream up the adventure and we’ll see how we can help you!
