Adaptive Lessons

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. Upon request, a guide for an adaptive skier can be provided at $84 per 2 hour lesson, each additional hour is $44. If the guest is accompanied by their own guide Dodge Ridge will provide a complimentary lift ticket.
