Winter Skiing Unlimited is a snow ski program for children and adults with disabilities. This program provides access to the sport of snow skiing for many blind, deaf, paraplegic, quadriplegic, and developmentally disabled individuals who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to share in these exhilarating activities. With the help of trained volunteers and adapted equipment, there are few disabilities too severe to prevent participation in the sport of snow skiing.
What is the cost of participation in the Winter Skiing Unlimited Program?
There is a $5 fee for clients to participate in the Skiing Unlimited program.
How do I become a participant?
You must be a minimum of 7 years old and weigh a maximum of 150 lbs to participate in Winter Skiing Unlimited. Whether you are a new participant to us or have skied with us in the past; all participants must fill out the participant application packet each season to ski in the snow skiing unlimited program.
Please keep in mind that due to the high demand for the program and limited ski dates available, we will try to accommodate at least one ski session per participant per season.
How can I help?
This program is only able to continue through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. The Society for disABILITIES is looking for skiers at all levels to volunteer with this exciting program. Regardless of your level of snow skiing or boarding ability, there are things you can do to help. Donate at least one Saturday in the season to allow a disabled child or adult the exhilarating experience of snow skiing. You will have the time of your life!
All ski trips are held at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. The Society for disABILITIES DOES NOT provide transportation for this program to Dodge Ridge Ski Resort.
All volunteers and participants must provide their own transportation to Dodge Ridge.
A parent or guardian must bring the participant to Dodge Ridge. Participants and Volunteers must schedule their trips in advance with the Society office.
I still have more questions!
