The SkiAbility program operates weekends
during July and August. It provides each skier with a one-half hour
session — off and on the water. Participants may sign up for one or more
program days on a first come first serve basis. Some limits may apply. Training days, clinics and events have been
the norm for several years and are listed below. We continue to look for opportunities to improve
the service to our community both in the number of events and the quality of the programs.
