Alpine skiing

REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN!

Start of activities January 16, 2021

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.

Water skiing

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.

Dahü

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.

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!

Adaptive ice skating

Adaptive cross-country ski sledges are equipped with a removable base that allows you to install a base with skating blades for the practice of adaptive ice skating.

Imagine a family walk in the Enchanted Forest in Trois-Rivières or crossing Lac Brome on the ice this winter! This is now possible.

 

Whether it is for a school outing or for an evening with the family, with our volunteer's guidance, we will give you a head start to practice this sport in complete safety.

Skiing for wounded soldiers

For the benefit of Canadian Armed Forces Transition Center  and Soldier On members, alpine skiing activities take place at the Le Relais ski resort.

The mission of the Adapted Sports Foundation towards wounded soldiers in Quebec is to get them out of isolation and to restore their motivation and self-confidence through sport.

The outings take place on Thursdays every two weeks and soldiers have to register online in advance.

Activity begins in Jan. 2021

Stay tuned for new adaptive cross-country skiing!

Sports camps for injured soldiers

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.

Mobile unit

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.
