  • Adaptive Programs for Locals

     

    Powder Hounds Adaptive Program is part of People in Motion, a non-profit society located out of Kelowna, BC, Canada. This adaptive program is available to children and adults with disabilities who wish to participate in downhill skiing or snowboarding. The program is designed to meet the needs of athletes who are either intellectually, physically or visually disabled. The program runs 7 days a week during the regular Big White ski season.

    There is no typical day for our clients! The individual needs, challenges and desires of each client are reviewed and discussed in advance by our staff. We then develop a plan to ensure a successful and fun downhill day for the client. We encourage family members to join in and guarantee an amazing experience for the whole family. All equipment and support volunteers are provided and therefore booking ahead of time is strongly encouraged to ensure availability. The program graciously accepts donations to ensure continued success.

    The Powder Hounds Adaptive Club was recognized in 2007/08 as the "Best Adaptive Club in Canada" by Ski Canada magazine. We have entertained clients from all over Canada, the USA and the rest of the world including Dubai, Great Britain, and Australia. 

    For further information and bookings please contact the People In Motion office at: 250.861.3302
