Wachusett Mountain Ski Area adaptive lessons

A skier skis down a hill on a mono ski. The skier has two short poles with ski blades on the end of them, which the skier is pressing against the snow to steer.

Adaptive downhill skiing lessons are also offered by Wachusett Mountain Ski Area.

Wachusett Mountain staff are trained in working with skiers with physical, cognitive, hearing, visual, and developmental disabilities. You need to make a reservation to schedule an adaptive lesson. Lesson cost varies by the type of lesson, the type of area ticket needed, and the equipment required.

For more information or to schedule a lesson, visit the Wachusett Adaptive Lessons website and send them an email or call (978) 464-2300, ext. 3308.
