Wintergreen Adaptive Sports – All We See is Possibility
Have you been riding at Wintergreen Resort and wondered who those people are in the bright purple jackets? They happen to be instructors with Wintergreen Adaptive Sports (WAS). WAS began in 1984 when a ski instructor at Wintergreen named Michael Zuckerman realized that the resort needed a program to provide ski instruction to people with disabilities. Since that time, more than 2,500 students have received instruction from WAS. And the number of students continues to grow.
WAS has the ability to teach all forms of snow sports including skiing and snowboarding. The vast array of instructors have dedicated time to learn appropriate techniques to teach these disciplines. The program is suitable for any age group and for people with all types of disabilities. It does not matter if you ski or snowboard, WAS has the right equipment and the right instructors to teach you or at least give you the chance to have a great time on the mountain. Every instructor is dedicated to the principle of WAS which is Safety, Fun, and Learning!
All lessons at WAS include a lift ticket, equipment, and private instruction with skilled instructors. The instructors are volunteers which only adds to the benefits students will receive at WAS. If you have an interest in working with a great group of people who only want to help others experience the freedom of riding the slopes, you should contact WAS! You can also become involved as a volunteer!
