Adaptive Skiing

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 disability we will match you up with one of our expert instructors.  

Depending on the level of disability, there are multiple methods and adaptive equipment used for lessons.  At Belleayre, the primary methods for adaptive skiing are:  four-track, three-track, two-track, mono-ski, bi-ski and visual impairment.

Lift ticket, lesson and rental adaptive equipment are included in the price.  Duration of lesson is usually two hours, depending on the student.  


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 on the instructor 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 insure there is an instructor available for you is to make a reservation in advance.    


Reservations are final and non-refundable if cancelled within 72 hours of the program start date. Reservations cancelled more than 72 hours before the start date will be refunded minus a 15% cancellation fee, or you may choose to receive the full value of your program credited towards the same program on another day. Credits are valid through December 20, 2019.
