Canadian Adaptive Snowsports Alberta (CADS) in partnership with Mt. Norquay Ski Resort is hosting a Ski4All Come Try It event this Sunday, Feb. 19 at the Mount Norquay Ski Resort from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This fun event focuses on families and friends and all are welcome to participate.
Athletes from the Cochrane-based Canadian Para Snowsport Training Centre (CPSTC), CADS Calgary volunteers and CoachAbility volunteers will be on-site to provide visitors to Mt. Norquay the opportunity to participate at the Ski4All Come Try It site that provides a learning experience, leading to awareness and knowledge of para-alpine skiing, and the nature of adaptive opportunities and inclusive snowsport.
People of all ages are encouraged to explore what para-alpine skiing athletes use as adaptive equipment and gain an increased appreciation of what para-alpine skiing involves.
Everyone can try a sit-ski, experience simulated visual impairment in skis, and try outriggers as specialized adaptive equipment.
All those who take part in Ski4All will also meet para-alpine skiing athlete ambassadors, who are part of the CPSTC.
Ski4All establishes connectivity to newcomers and existing fans of Paralympic Snowsport.
To participate, follow the signs and volunteers to the Ski4All area across from the main lodge at Mt. Norquay Ski Resort.
The goal is to educate the public about our learn to ski and snowboard CADS programs available around the province that provide participants with physical, sensory, or co-disabilities to try adaptive skiing or snowboarding as participants, and to create opportunities for involvement as participants or volunteers.
