Winter Skiing Unlimited
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 the 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 no cost to our clients for participation in the Skiing Unlimited program however donations are greatly appreciated.
How do I become a participant?
You must be a minimum of 7 years old and weigh a maximum of 180 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.
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 and boarders 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 enable a disabled child or adult experience the exhilaration 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, guardian or attendant must bring the participant to Dodge Ridge. Participants and Volunteers must schedule their trips in advance with the Society office.
THANK YOU to each and every one of our amazing Winter Ski volunteers for making this season such an awesome season! We had a few new participants who had never been snow skiing before leave the program with huge smiles on their faces. This program would cease to exist if it weren’t for amazing people like you. Thank you for all that you do!
