Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snow Sports (VISAS)
VISAS began with a group of Comox Valley folks keen to share their love for the outdoors, who began to teach skiing to mentally and physically challenged people in the early 1960's. VISAS helps individuals, challenged by injury or developmental diseases, to find ways to "accent their abilities" through the use of adaptive equipment and professional instruction.
