Providing access to the sport of Snow Skiing


Dodge Ridge Snowsports School provides private lessons for guests with adaptive needs including cognitive and physical disabilities. Reservations are required at least 48 hours in advance and are based on the availability of a qualified instructor. Rental equipment is available as part of the lesson package.

Daily Programs

We have certified PSIA Snowsports Adaptive Instructors who have experience in teaching our adaptive guests. A brief interview followed by a reservation is required in advance to accommodate our adaptive skiers. Our goal in the interview is to match the skier’s needs with the right equipment and instructor. Adaptive lessons include 2 hours of instruction with a certified Adaptive Instructor, rental equipment and a lift ticket.
