Waterville Valley Resorts’ Adaptive Sports Program is a special part of our community where physically and mentally challenged children and adults team up with extraordinary volunteers and learn to ski down a snowy slope unencumbered by a wheelchair or braces.
Waterville Valley Golf Club is proud to keep the momentum going during the warm-weather months by hosting Wounded Warriors and their families and Special Olympians training for the summer games.
The Waterville Adaptive Program was founded in 1992 by Kathy Chandler, a PSIA-Certified Adaptive Examiner and former Ski School director and operates under the 501(c)(3) non-profit status of the Waterville Valley Foundation. Today the program is guided by over eighty dedicated and highly-trained volunteer instructors who teach lessons seven days a week.
