Since 1995, ASF has welcomed hundreds of participants to it's adaptive ski program at the Owl's Head ski resort in Mansonville. A second permanent site was installed at the Le Relais ski resort in the National Capital Region. Thanks to the collaboration of l'Association des stations de ski du Québec (ASSQ) and the program "Ma première fois en ski adapté", as well as ski resorts across Quebec who welcome our Mobile Unit, more people can now discover adaptive alpine skiing.
More recently, in collaboration with the Canadian Armed Forces and Soldier On, downhill skiing activities with injured soldiers take place every week at Le Relais ski resort.
The ASF offers two waterski programs: “Introduction to adapted water sports” and “Elite water skiing”. These programs allow athletes of all levels to participate in adapted water sports. The nautical activities offered for our participants with reduced mobility are: water skiing, water tubing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and pontoon trips.
REGISTRATION JUNE 2021
The Dahü, our adapted wheelchair specially designed for tackling mountainous terrain, promotes teamwork and strengthens the relationships between the people who participate in it. The participant with reduced mobility in a Dahü can help his team by guiding them through the mountainous terrain and even participate in the effort using poles if his condition allows it. Cities and organizations that purchase a Dahü agree to lend them free of charge to people with reduced mobility. The ASF coordinates the availability of volunteers and ensures a safe outing in a refreshing outdoor environment.
REGISTRATION APRIL 2021
Adaptive cross-country skiing
Thanks to the acquisition of two sledges to practice adaptive cross-country skiing, participants, young and old, who can use their arms can discover this new activity offered by the ASF.
The Evo Concept sledges are made in Quebec and will be delivered in January 2021. Easy to transport, they will be used at the Orford and at the Golf des Cèdres cross-country ski centers in Granby, as well as in our mobile unit for special outings.
Come and discover the tranquil nature of the cross-country ski trails with us. Perhaps you will fall in love with this already popular sport!
The ASF’s sports camps for injured soldiers were created with the specific needs of soldiers in mind. Whether participants have physical injuries, are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder or are in mourning, the ASF puts all of its expertise at their disposal. Our goal is to contribute to soldiers’ rehabilitation by offering them new opportunities to build confidence and self-esteem.
The ASF's mobile unit allows collaboration with various groups and organizations to offer activities throughout Quebec.
School groups or other groups
Imagine allowing a disabled child to participate in a school trip in the mountains with his friends. Whether on the ski slopes, on the water or on the trails, there is no reason to stay on the sidelines while your friends are having fun.
