About Us

Mt. Brighton Adaptive Sports Program assists children and adults with disabilities to participate in outdoor recreation through scholarships, lessons and with assistance to purchase adaptive equipment.   

Our goal is to extend the thrill of skiing and snowboarding to guests of all ages and abilities. This is accomplished with a large variety of adaptive equipment to assess individual needs prior to arrival and to ensure that the appropriate equipment is available. Specially trained professional instructors also tailor each lesson to the needs of the participant for a safe, yet unforgettable experience.

We are recognized as a leader in providing first class training to people of all abilities.

Mt. Brighton Veterans Program

The mission of the Mt. Brighton Veteran's program is to provide US military veterans the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard while focusing on their abilities, not disabilities.

The program offers a positive aspect of transition for the veterans and their families into life with their disability. Allowing veterans to experience the thrill of skiing or riding and overcoming adversity or just "get back on the mountain".

Professional Development

Mt. Brighton Adaptive instructors have attended the Hartford Ski Spectacular hosted by Breckenridge Resort in Breckenridge Colorado in December 2014. Half and full day sessions attended included instruction on Mono-skiing, Bi-skiing, and how to make lessons fun. In addition Stand-up Slider training  was introduced. (see photos left)
