“OAS exists to provide a positive and safe winter recreation experiences to individuals with disabilities and their families. The primary objective of OAS is to educate, instruct, and train persons with disabilities to become proficient and confident snow sports participants, while educating their families and friends in how to assist them in reaching this goal.”
Brochures explaining more about OAS are available outside our Snowsports School. Classes for volunteer instructors, family members, and adaptive skiers are available through the program at Hoodoo. The hours of participation are 9 AM to 3 PM, reservations must be made at least three days in advance by appointment through OAS. The Ski Buddy Program through OAS is normally on Saturdays and Sundays and is at Hoodoo or Mt Bachelor Ski Areas.
Alpine Adventures is a City of Eugene Adaptive Recreation service. Volunteers assist with instruction and general procedures on Fridays and one Sunday per month, January through March. Volunteers must be at least an intermediate skier and be able to lift 50 lbs, but no previous knowledge of adapted skiing is necessary. Training, transportation and lift tickets to Hoodoo Ski Area provided. College credit available. All equipment is provided. Only pre-requisite? A passion for fun!
