In winter, DSES’s professional staff and volunteers teach alpine skiing, cross country skiing, biathlon, and snowboarding. We specialize in working with students of all ages and abilities using advanced adaptive techniques and equipment to help athletes achieve their goals. Our fleet of adaptive equipment includes mono skis, bi skis, snow sliders, and more. Teaching techniques are tailored to the abilities and goals of each student emphasizing safety and fun.
