To remove physical, financial and social barriers to help enable disabled people to participate and thrive to their fullest potential.
Loss of income and/or an inability to earn a livable wage is almost always a by-product of a disability or disabling injury. This leaves a vast majority of disabled people and their families in severe, long term/permanent financial distress..
Disabled individuals and families with disabled members face additional costs for their disabled family member to participate in family life. These costs are enormous and sometimes not affordable. For example: a usable wheelchair costs over $2500. Prosthetic limbs can easily cost over $30,000, while an adaptive ski frame starts at $3000. The result is often the disabled person participating at a lower level, or not participating at all, due to lack of financial resources.
We provide adaptive ski equipment (Tessier Dualski), volunteers and training for family and friends at no charge. We provide PSIA Adaptive Certified ski school instructors and lift tickets / passes to ski at Whitefish Mountain Resort to eligible (low to moderate income) disabled Flathead Valley residents as our budget allows.
