When the snow melts off the mountain and the chairlifts stop for the season, the staff at the Adaptive Sports Foundation is often asked, “So what do you do when the ski season ends?”  Well, there are many answers to this question, however for the program staff springtime is an opportunity to learn.  The staff at the ASF prides itself in seeking out the most up to date knowledge on a variety of subjects so we are able to provide first class programming to our participants.  Over the last six weeks, ASF staff members have participated in training classes that range from wilderness first aid, disability sports certification, paddling, yoga, golf and leadership.  Below is a sampling of the types of training the ASF program staff completed this past spring.

  • Wilderness First Responder – SOLO School
