We have something for everyone, so if you like to be outside but skiing or snowboarding is not your thing, then let's go strap on a pair of snowshoes and head outside. Snowshoeing is great exercise. Whether you're going out for a short day hike or a full-fledged backpacking trip, you'll find this traditional mode of travel easy to learn-and effective at getting you where you want to go.

We use instructional progressions for those individuals who have the strength to independently support themselves, to balance, and to coordinate movements while standing upright. Generally these individuals ambulate (walk) independently with or without the use of assistive aides (forearm crutches, walker, etc.). These individuals may or may not also use other assistive aides such as orthotics or braces to help them walk.

Generally, use of one or two handheld poles will be introduced to assist with achieving desired snowshoeing skills. Persons who snowshoe may also use (a) one or two handheld outriggers (forearm crutches with skis attached at the base of the crutch) or (b) a modified walker with skis attached, thus providing four points of contact with the snow. This equipment assists with static and dynamic balance as well as helping to achieve desired dynamic snowshoeing movements.

If you have a wheelchair and want to go snowshoeing, we will rig up sled so you can go with everyone else.
