Rocky Mountain Adaptive
Rocky Mountain Adaptive (RMA) is a registered charity providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate, learn and excel at mountain sport and recreation.
Based in Canmore, Alberta, Rocky Mountain Adaptive (RMA) is a registered charity providing individuals of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate, learn and excel at mountain sport and recreation. We work to remove cognitive, physical and social barriers to the participation, supporting guests at every step, roll, or glide. RMA has witnessed, first hand, the benefits of participation in its programs that go beyond the social aspects of equality and inclusion.
Rocky Mountain Adaptive (RMA) started in 2009 with a dream: to promote adaptive sport, create independence, and develop opportunities. The foundation of RMA began with adaptive ski lessons at Sunshine Village Ski Resort in Banff, AB. This dream grew into a community, connecting guests to adventures and supporters to opportunities, redefining the definition of ability.
Today, RMA provides offers over 20 different sport and recreational activities in the Bow Valley area (including Canmore, Kananaskis, Banff, Lake Louise, and surrounding areas) to guests from all over the world and facilitates single to multi-day experiences, catering to entry-level participants, developing competitive athletes and everyone in between. RMA provides private lessons, guided experiences, multi-day programs and camps, equipment rentals, and programming to disability groups.
To increase the self-esteem, independence, physical health, mental well-being and sense of belonging to community of persons with physical, developmental or cognitive challenges through participation in adaptive sport and recreational activities.
