Skiing is a sport for everyone! Catamount is proud to team up with STRIDE to offer adaptive skiing and equipment for individuals with intellectual and/or physical disabilities.
STRIDE is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals with disabilities through sports and recreation. STRIDE’s programs give individuals with special needs the opportunity to test their limits, develop new skills, make friends, and have fun in the process. STRIDE attracts participants to its programs from all over the Northeast. Each year, STRIDE develops new programs and expands current programs in order to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.
