The Belleayre Adaptive Snowsports Program is for adults and children with cognitive, physical, and emotional disabilities who want to learn how to ski and snowboard. The Belleayre Snowsports staff provides instruction to help each individual reach their highest potential by empowering individuals with disabilities. Lessons range from “Never-Ever” to the advanced skier or snowboarder. No matter your ability we will match you up with one of our expert instructors.

Lesson Information

Due to the high demand for lessons, reservations are a MUST and all students have to complete an Adaptive Intake Form. The intake form gives us all the important information we need to match you up with the best instructor and only needs to be submitted once a year. To make your reservation, please call our reservation department at 845-254-6245.

All Adaptive Lessons will begin and end in the Adaptive Center, located on the ground floor at the Discovery Lodge. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of your lesson. Allow extra time for traffic, weather, parking, and check-in.

First-time students will get an overview of the equipment, fittings, and set up with equipment which takes approximately 1 hour to complete. Returning students will be fitted with equipment and be on the snow for approximately 2 hours, if capable. The Snowsports School Director, Adaptive Snowsports Director, or Supervisor has the right to cancel any lesson if, in their opinion, the student’s present conditions would present an unreasonable risk to the student and/or snow conditions would do the same. The Adaptive Program Director makes the determination of the instructor’s requirements.

On occasion, we will have a last-minute cancellation and will be able to accommodate a walk-in guest. However, the best way to ensure there is an instructor available for you is to make a reservation in advance.
