STRIDE hosts three mountain resorts to choose from for adaptive skiing and snowboarding lessons: Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA; Catamount Mountain in Hillsdale, NY; and Ski Sundown, in New Hartford, CT. Our dedicated crew of volunteers coaches come from all over the New York and New England regions to teach over 1300 lessons during the winter to people with both cognitive and physical disabilities.

Private adaptive lessons are offered for 2.5 hours, which includes specialized equipment and rentals. Hours of operation are December through April. We offer lessons for Mono-ski, Bi-ski, Visual or Hearing Impaired, Intellectual Disabilities, 3-track or 4-track, and adaptive snowboard. Our program at Catamount Mountain offers lessons on the weekends only.
