The Utah Ski Program is a one week skiing and winter sports program for children ages 10 to 19. With the instruction of certified adaptive ski instructors from the National Ability Center (NAC) and the encouragement and support from our One Step volunteers, twenty-five children will travel to Park City, Utah. Many of these campers have physical or cognitive disabilities associated with their cancers or treatments.  Working with the coaches, the children will challenge themselves in new ways -- building that confidence as they learn new skills and achieve their goals. All adaptive ski equipment is provided by the NAC.

In addition to skiing, the kids also enjoy activities that in the past have included: horseback riding, innertubing, and an evening sleigh ride through the pristine Utah mountains. A particular favorite excursion has been to an indoor recreational facility with a disability-friendly water program.

One Step partners with the National Ability Center to provide adaptive skiing for campers. Due to the nature of the program, priority acceptance to campers with limited abilities instead of first come/first accepted.
