Great Bear Adaptive Ski Program

The Great Bear Adaptive Ski Program (GBASP) provides people with special needs the opportunity to enjoy downhill snow skiing in a safe and fun learning environment. The program strives to positively enhance the lives of the people we serve by promoting health, independence, and well-being.

What to Expect 

Upon receiving your completed participant application, GBASP will contact you to schedule a Sunday lesson (a minimum 48 hour notice is required). On the day of your 1st lesson please arrive at Great Bear 30 minutes prior to the start of the scheduled lesson time in order to obtain your lift ticket, gather ski equipment, and be fitted for any adaptive equipment that may be needed. After fitting, skiers will begin an ability appropriate lesson with a GBASP instructor. While on the snow, adaptive skiers will be assisted by one lead instructor and up to 3 additional GBASP members. Upon completion of the lesson, the skier and instructors will return to the lodge and debrief on the days achievements.
