This year, in addition to the stellar Downhill and Cross Country skiing instruction that’s offered, the clinic will be offering an introduction to adaptive kayaking. In addition to kayaking, the Winter Sports Clinic (WSC) offers a wide range of adaptive alternate activities to do throughout the week when you are not speeding down the slopes. We will also be offering a variety of new educational sessions this year, those of you who need Continuing Education Credits can obtain those for these classes. Also, the United States Secret Service will be offering “Introduction to Self Defense” classes during the week, geared toward individuals with disabilities but open for anyone to attend.
We hope you are all as excited for this year’s clinic as we are. See you on the slopes!
