TAASC has a wide variety of adaptive equipment for stand up, sit skiers, and snowboarders. Lessons and open skiing are held on Saturdays in January and February at Snow Trails and Mad River Mountain. Evening lessons are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays and daytime lessons are by appointment. Sessions are 2.5 hours long. TAASC will try to accommodate special situations such as school ski trips. There is no skiing at Mad River Mountain on the day of the Winter Sports Challenge fund raiser.
TAASC has over 25 instructors certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America. These instructors are skilled in using the various types of adaptive skis and in adapting teaching strategies. Last year, TAASC instructors assisted at disabled sports ski events in West Virginia, Michigan, Colorado, and New York.
