Our Mission

DSES creates and facilitates fun, inclusive, and individualized mountain sports opportunities for people of all ages and abilities by removing barriers to participation. We are community-centered around people with disabilities as well as their families and friends.

volunteer1Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra is a volunteer-based nonprofit dedicated to changing the lives of children and adults with disabilities and their families by:

  • offering year-round outdoor sports and activities
  • creating inspiring challenges
  • providing expert instruction and adaptive equipment
  • rallying the community to comfortably accommodate people with disabilities.

DSES has adaptive equipment to fulfill everyone’s winter and summer dreams: gliding down a snow-covered mountainside, cruising on a cycle or skimming over a placid lake.

Activities are customized to each individual; one-on-one or in a group. Our goal is for everyone to be active year round!

We believe the exhilaration of outdoor experiences changes lives. DSES aspires to be a leader in adaptive recreation by promoting a lifelong passion for mountain sports for people of all ages and abilities.

DSES makes the outdoors accessible and affordable!!
