The Vail Adaptive Program also provides “Adaptive Assistant” to assist more experienced skiers with disabilities. This “Adaptive Assistant” can provide assistance with chair lift loading, equipment transportation and general orientation on the mountain. A “Adaptive Assistant" can also help with integration into children’s ski school classes, provided the child meets the Essential Eligibility Criteria for class lessons. Adaptive Assistant should not be utilized in place of a Ski and Snowboard School lesson or as a personal aid. There is a fee for this service and we require a minimum of 48 hours advanced notification if you are requesting Adaptive Assistant assistance.
