The United States Adaptive Recreation Center is a non-profit organization providing adapted recreation activities through its winter and summer programs to physically and cognitively challenged children and adults. The funds raised in the annual Ski- A-Thon help purchase adaptive ski equipment, train 200 volunteers and professional staff members and subsidize the cost of every single lesson.

Located at Bear Mountain Resort in Big Bear Lake, the USARC is the only program of its kind in the region. Lessons are provided to people with spinal cord injuries, visual impairments, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, amputations, cognitive disabilities, cerebral palsy, brain injuries and many others.
