Ski Schools and Assisted Sport Providers in Banff

‘To enable all children and adults with intellectual, physical, or cognitive impairments to access, learn and participate in all sport and recreation activities in the Canadian Rockies. NO LIMITS’

The Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Centre (RMASC) is a newly formed Not for Profit Society, with the primary aim of providing any individual with a disability the chance to access all sporting and recreational activities in the Canadian Rockies. Based in Canmore, Alberta, RMASC is making strides in enabling children and adults with any physical, intellectual, cognitive, or developmental impairment to participate in all the fantastic sports and adventure activities that are available in the stunningly beautiful Bow Valley, including Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and its surrounding areas.

The idea of RMASC has been our dream for some time. It came about from the setting up of some Adaptive ski lessons at Sunshine Village, which were for the benefit of some local children from Banff and Canmore. These lessons progressed into the development of the 10 Week Therapeutic Ski and Snowboard Program which now boasts over 25 participants. The program enriches the lives of children with disabilities from the bow valley and Calgary and their families lives too. As well as the 10 Week program, we also offer products that enable individuals with disabilities from across Alberta, Canada and internationally to come and experience snow sports at Sunshine Village.

Access to Our Full Comprehensive Portfolio

Ski 2 Freedom Foundation would like to make it clear that we regard everyone as an individual and that no two people will have the same needs and requirements. Therefore please note that what you see on this page regarding assisted or adaptive skiing and accommodation, may not be suitable for you, or someone you know. However, if you think this destination would be a good ski resort for you, then please contact us to discuss your personal requirements and we will endeavour to see if the resort will meet these.

We hope that you have found the information on this page helpful and a chance to make a decision on where to go for your winter holiday. However, we know that often much more discussion is required and therefore we invite you to contact us as we hold extensive information on all our ski resorts – please contact us.

Our information has and is obtained by means of extensive personal research at a cost, often to the Foundation, we only give this out to those that request it and is not for general public use. For our beneficiaries this information is free but for a company or organisation we make a nominal charge via donation.

Ski 2 Freedom provides specific information on the activities for skiers with a disability, additional need or life-challenging illness, etc. plus useful extras such as wheelchair accessible places to stay; so we are not going to also reproduce amazing information and advice on ski resorts which has been collected by ski journalists, skiers and ski companies which are dedicated to this service - what we can do is to link you to these sites which may well give you some extra background information on a specific ski resort and help you make up your mind as to where you might go!
