Adaptive Skiing (Para Nordic) Programs
Adaptive Skiing or Para-Nordic is for individuals of all ages and abilities who have physical impairments requiring the use of modified cross country ski equipment and facilities.
CCSAM is committed to developing and delivering programs for skiers of all abilities, and we are working to engage volunteers and secure funding sources to establish and sustain programs that make cross country skiing accessible to everyone.
