Programs for Locals

Adaptive Ski Programs for LocalsAdaptive_logo.jpg

Powder Hounds Adaptive Ski Program is part of People in Motion, a non-profit society located out of Kelowna, BC, Canada. This adaptive ski program is available to children and adults with disabilities who wish to participate in downhill skiing. The program is designed to meet the needs of athletes who are either intellectually, physically or visually disabled. The program runs 7 days a week during the regular Big White ski season.

There is no typical day for our clients! The individual needs, challenges and desires of each client are reviewed and discussed in advance by our staff. We then develop a plan to ensure a successful and fun ski day for the client. We encourage family members to join in and guarantee an amazing ski experience for the whole family. All equipment and support volunteers are provided and therefore booking ahead of time is strongly encouraged to ensure availability. There is a $50 fee to participate in the 2015/2016, this fee includes People In Motion's membership, instruction with certified Adaptive Skiing Instructors and full use of adaptive equipment.The program graciously accepts donations to ensure continued success.

The Powder Hounds Adaptive Ski Club was recognized in 2007/08 as the "Best Adaptive Ski Club in Canada" by Ski Canada magazine. We have entertained clients from all over Canada, the USA and the rest of the world including Dubai, Great Britain, and Australia.
