In Partnership With: Teton Adaptive Sports
Special Guests: Wounded Warriors (OEF/OIF)
In our continuing efforts to offer unique and exciting ski experiences, Adaptive Adventures will collaborate with Teton Adaptive Sports and the Jackson Hole Mountain Sports School to again include adaptive skiers in the popular March Steep and Deep Camp. This is the fourth year for the Adaptive element in the Steep and Deep camp.
This four day camp is targeted for advanced skiers seeking a challenging “big mountain” experience. Participants will develop and refine the strategies and tactics necessary to explore the variety of terrain and snow conditions for which Jackson Hole is famous. US Paralympic Gold Medalist Greg Manino will join with seasoned JHMSS instructors to offer insight on finding the best line, how to read a slope, steep skiing etiquette, and terrain selection. There is also the possibility of an out of bounds experience on either of the last two days depending on weather, snow conditions, and skier ability.
An important part of this camp is “inclusion” as adaptive skiers will participate in all camp activities equally on and off the snow whenever possible. “As an amputee, I usually ski with other adaptive skiers. I really enjoyed the opportunity to be grouped with other skiers based on my abilities and not by the equipment I use to move down the hill. The instructors with the camp were truly top-notch. I cannot wait to come back to the Steeps and Deeps of Jackson Hole next year”, was the response from Joel Berman, Executive Director of Adaptive Adventures and participant at last year’s camp.
Come join us for a truly fun and exciting ski opportunity!
