The Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports is a non-profit charitable society focused on providing Nationally Certified Snowsports Instruction to the physically or mentally challenged.
We believe that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate and enjoy Alpine/Nordic (cross country) snowsports.
We are here to help you accent your abilities in a fun and encouraging environment.
Our volunteer instructors are certified nationally with the Canadian Association
for Disabled Skiing (CADS).
Many are also members of the Canadian Ski Alliance (CSIA), the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI) and the Canadian Association
of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI).
We are based in Courtenay, British Columbia at
Mount Washington Alpine Resort.
