Winter Adaptive Sports Programs in Jackson Hole
It is a core TAS belief is that active participation in sports and recreation promotes individuals’ physical strength, develops confidence and self esteem, forges relationships and contributes to a level of enjoyment and quality of life that otherwise might not be experienced. We believe in the ability of connections to the outdoors to improve quality of life for all people so we strive to make outdoor recreation inclusive.
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.
Teton Kids Adaptive Skiing
TAS is grateful to work with the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Adaptive Program, which features world-class instructors and programming that matches its world-renowned terrain and amenities. Kids aged 5-18 can be found in sit skis, etc. all over the mountain with huge grins on their faces.
Sled Hockey Sundays
Love the NHL and all the excitement that hockey brings? Well with the help of our fleet of 30 adaptive hockey sleds and specialized sticks you too can take to the ice on Sled Hockey Sundays. USA Hockey pays for the private ice time at the Snow King Sports and Event Center and the Moose Hockey team volunteers to guide participants and oversee safety. Come skate!
Adaptive Steep & Deep Ski Camps
Two adaptive ski camps in Wyoming allow advanced adaptive skiers to take their skiing to the next level under the guidance of local, experienced adaptive instructors.
