Winter Programs

Skiing / Snowboarding

The ski and snowboard program aims to progress students to a level of skiing and riding independently with family or friends. Adaptive equipment includes the bi-ski, snow slider, Kart Ski, monoski, and outriggers that maximize success and learning. All instructors are PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) or AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) certified. WAS skis at Snowbird, Sundance, Alta, and other resorts upon request (some restrictions apply).

Snowshoeing

A great way to experience the mountains in the winter, snowshoeing is a favorite for groups and families to enjoy together. Snowshoes attach to hiking or snow boots, allowing the student to walk on either groomed trails or off-trail in the powder Utah is known for. WAS partners with the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation to provide Snowshoe Naturalist Guided Tours at Alta Ski Resort.

Indoor Cycling

The newest program at WAS, weekly indoor cycling classes provides students with the opportunity to stay healthy during the winter and keep up with their fitness goals. Students meet at the Murray office warehouse starting in January until April and ride on trainers and rollers on adaptive bikes while staying warm indoors!

Seated Yoga

Our yoga program emphasizes the experience of the pose rather than achieving it. Core principles include grounding, expansion, balance and rhythm through use of various props. Together with Intermountain Neurotherapy Services’ RAMMP program, WAS is piloting this program at Intermountain’s TOSH location Building 5 at 5848 S 300 E, Murray, UT 84107. Walk through the front doors, take the elevators on the right to the next level down and the room is located across the hall. WAS and RAMMP students are welcome to participate.

Full and partial scholarships are available. Advanced reservations are required for all winter activities and are based on availability.  A thorough assessment of the student is done prior to the first lesson to determine the student’s abilities and adaptive needs.
