The TAASC program is by far the largest, in terms of numbers of volunteers and participants. Ski lessons are offered at two local ski hills, Snow Trails Ski Resort in Mansfield, Ohio and Mad River Mountain in Bellefontaine, Ohio. These lessons run from January through March (depending on snow conditions) and are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays. With their inventory of adaptive equipment and the experience, knowledge and expertise of their volunteers, they are able to offer lessons in all six adaptive disciplines: developmental disability, visual impairment, three-track, four track, bi-ski, and mono- ski. TAASC has over 65 trained volunteers of which 15 are PSIA certified instructors.
