Interested in Our Ski/Ride Buddies?
If you already know how to ski or snowboard and would just prefer some company around the slopes with an adaptive trained volunteer that can guide you around suitable terrain, help you load/unload chairlifts, or help you up if you fall, then the Rocky Mountain Adaptive ski/ride buddies are for you. Our team of enthusiastic volunteers are available for your assistance. Pre booking is a must (the earlier the better!), and a voluntary contribution to the running of this program would be greatly appreciated.
Please note, all ski/ride buddies are subject to availability. Ski/ride buddies may not be confirmed until shortly before the date requested. Once you request a ski buddy, the information you provide (including date & how the ski buddy can be of assistance) will go out to our pool of volunteers. Volunteers can sign up to be a ski buddy until at least 48 hours prior to the ski buddy request date. Therefore we may not know until much near the time whether we can arrange a ski buddy for you. Ski/ride buddies are only currently available at Sunshine Village Ski & Snowboard Resort unless special arrangements have been made.
Ski/ride buddies may requested for guests under the age of 18, however, in this situation, a parent/guardian may be required to be present. Ski Buddies for individuals under the age of 18 years will be evaluated on a case by case situation. Please note: Ski/ride buddies do not teach lessons and are not able to give advice on the advancement or correction of skills.
Please complete a booking request below. We will post the information you provide to our awesome team of volunteers. If a volunteer signs up to assist the named individual in the form, we will let you know. If you do not hear from us, please assume that we were not successful in finding you a volunteer. You may email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
