In 1998 a young girl named Seria Leone asked Ski School Director Steve DeBenedictis if someone could teach her to ski the mountain even though she had a disability. Since that day our adaptive program has made it possible for everyone to enjoy the thrill of skiing regardless of his or her disability. Children and adults with spinal cord injuries, post polio conditions, limb loss, Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, cerebral palsy, autism or blindness are welcomed, challenged and successful.
