Accenting Your Abilities with Vancouver Island’s Society for Adaptive Snowsports

Do you know someone with a physical or mental disability, or who's been injured or has an age-related condition and still wants to keep active?

Over the last 24 years the Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports (VISAS) at Mount Washington Alpine Resort has instructed 1000s in adaptive alpine, and Nordic skiing, and snowboarding, providing many with new opportunities and introducing them to the thrill of mountain sports.

During the ski season VISAS’s 80 volunteer CADS certified instructors are on the mountain seven days a week leading snowsports festivals, ski improvement and race programs, the Veteran’s Learn to Ski/Snowsport Camp, and the Herb Bradley Pepsi Challenge Fundraiser.

If you are interested in becoming an instructor and getting involved with a dynamic group of dedicated volunteers, or want to learn more about joining the adaptive snowsports program visit our website at www.visasweb.ca and check out our Facebook page.
