Ski & Board Program

“Mountains accommodate everyone equally. Gravity doesn’t care if you are sitting down or standing up!”

The Ski & Board Program provides the opportunity for individuals of all abilities to enjoy the sport of skiing and snowboarding. Through this program, participants gain the ability to develop different muscles, improve their balance and coordination, increase their self-awareness and confidence, and improve their self-esteem.

Eagle Mount Great Falls provides its adaptive Ski & Board Program at Showdown Montana only.
