Summer Adaptive Sports Programs in Jackson Hole
Core Values: Inclusive Outdoor Recreation
At TAS we believe in outdoor recreation that includes all abilities. We strive for equal access to opportunities to improve quality of life. That’s what outdoor recreation is about!
As members of our community, adaptive athletes should have the same access to outdoor recreation as everyone else. We believe that separate is not equal. By equipping and training outfitters, ski and bike programs and community organizers to include and plan for people of all abilities we strive for inclusion!
TAS began with a ski program, as most adaptive sports outfits do! We find that skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, boating and biking bring us joy. Great friendships and skills are forged while participating in outdoor recreation. It is our mission to make outdoor recreation more accessible and inclusive of people with different abilities.
It’s about fun! When we are outside connecting with our environment, learning new ways to cover ground and spending quality time with people we care about our lives and our health improve. TAS and other recreation providers are in the quality of life business.
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 Group Programs
Summer Programs are unique adaptive offerings that allow people with disabilities to take part in many of the summer activities all people do in Jackson Hole. Participants are grouped into four categories and take part in programs like paddling, cycling, climbing, fishing, and even a food tour on bikes plus others during the summer months.
Peak Achievement Grants
