What is adaptive snowboarding? Some adaptive riders use outriggers to help balance themselves while they board, but many don't use any special equipment. Also bindings on the board can be moved to help with balance. Participants include riders with spinal cord injuries, amputations, visual impairments, head injuries, multiple sclerosis and other conditions. Improved balance and increased leg and trunk strength are some of the benefits of riding.

As with adaptive skiing, a wide variety of specialized equipment is used for adaptive snowboarding. Choosing from among these tools is dictated by a rider's strengths and weaknesses. We use these aids merely to assist a rider and not to make him or her dependent on them. The goal is to develop independence from accessory equipment through effective riding.
