Winter program


Winter program 2018

Each season, more than 80 trained volunteers contribute to the adaptive alpine ski and snowboard lessons. Since our inception, Owl’s Head Ski Resort in Mansonville has been the home of our winter program. Without the valuable cooperation of Owl’s Head, it would be unthinkable to consider the implementation of a program of this magnitude.

Among our volunteers are instructors, assistant-instructors, snow mobile drivers, and office assistants.  It is thanks to all these volunteers that we are able to achieve our winter program’s success.


Early registration is strongly recommended for the program as there is limited space per group.

Participant registration for the Winter Program is on a first come, first served basis. IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARTICIPANTS: Online registration does not guarantee a place in the program.  Registration for each activity must be approved based on the number of volunteers available for the date(s) requested.
