31st Annual Adaptive Ski Week

Press Release Date: Dec-1-2011

January 16-20 2012 Adaptive Ski Week
Beech Mountain Resort continues to host a 4-day Adaptive Learn to Ski and Race Clinic sponsored by the Disabled Sports USA and the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center.

This is the oldest adaptive ski clinic, first in a group of national clinics, started by the DSUSA (previously known as National Handicap Sports). The Atlanta Chapter of NHS assisted in the development of the first clinic in 1981 and continued with it through 2004. The clinic is now run as a cooperative effort with programs concerned with sports for individuals with disabilities and Beech Mountain Resort continues to host their efforts. The sponsors of this event donate to assemble the instructors, equipment, and resources necessary to teach skiing/ snowboarding to individuals with disabilities in the southeast region.

Beech Mountain Resort's Adaptive Ski Week is a week of fun for individuals with disabilities. This year will be the 31st anniversary of the program. Instructors come from the best adaptive ski programs in the country. Students are primarily from the East Coast, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and surrounding areas.

To participate as a student or volunteer, contact Al Kaye by email for further information.
