Programs

Developing Independence.

Wasatch Adaptive Sports believes in the development of ability, as well as independence and active living, through recreation. We provide entry-level through advanced instruction of winter and summer recreational pursuits for individuals with adaptive needs and their families.

Based out of Snowbird, with off-site locations along the Wasatch Front, our trained staff and volunteers focus on matching the student’s goals with an individualized progression. Full and partial scholarships are available.

Winter Programs

Skiing/Snowboarding
The ski and snowboard program aims to progress students to a level of skiing and riding independently with family or friends. Adaptive equipment includes the bi-ski, snow slider, Kart Ski, monoski, and outriggers that maximize success and learning. Most instructors are PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) or AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) certified. WAS skis at Snowbird, Sundance, Alta and other resorts upon request (some restrictions apply).

Snowshoeing
A great way to experience the mountains in the winter, snowshoeing is a favorite for groups and families to enjoy together. Snowshoes attach to hiking or snow boots, allowing the participant to walk on either groomed trails or off-trail in the powder Utah is known for.

Indoor Cycling Classes
Students can keep up with their fitness goals by cycling indoors at Wasatch Adaptive Sport's Murray warehouse throughout the winter months.

Adaptive Yoga
Our yoga program emphasizes the experience of the pose rather than achieving it. Core principles include grounding, expansion, balance and rhythm through use of various props.

Summer Programs

Cycling
A variety of two-wheeled bicycles, three-wheeled recumbents, adaptive children’s bikes and handcycles comprise the fleet of bikes that make this program a great option for children and adults of varying abilities. Group rides and private sessions take place throughout the week on the paved trails at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City, the Murdock Canal Trail in Pleasant Grove, the Jordan River Parkway in Murray or the Provo River Trail in Provo.

Paddleboarding & Kayaking
Located at Tibble Fork reservoir, the paddleboard and kayak program focuses on success found in either the sitting, kneeling or standing position. Paddling provides aerobic exercise, in addition to physical strength and mental well-being in a beautiful setting.

Hiking
Participants enjoy the Wasatch National Forest by hiking the Barrier-Free Trail at Snowbird. This paved, wheel-chair accessible path meanders .5 miles amongst old spruce and fir trees to the observation deck overlooking Little Cottonwood Canyon. The network of dirt trails at the base of the mountain are a great hiking option as well.
