Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports (VASS) runs skiing and snowboarding programs for persons with a disability at Grouse, Seymour and Cypress Mountains. VASS makes the mountain experience accessible to all. VASS is a registered non-profit society operated by a dedicated group of volunteers, which includes an active Board of Directors, program coordinators, instructors and administrators.
We welcome students of all ages and disabilities and utilize adaptive equipment and/or specialized teaching techniques to maximize a person’s independence on the snow. To meet the needs of its members, VASS offers programs from beginner to advanced, which include snowboarding, sit-ski, stand-up skiing and advanced adaptive ski racing.
The VASS CUP is our premier annual fundraiser. Revenue from the VASS CUP as well as other community partnerships and private donations makes it possible for VASS to continue to provide these programs each year. VASS is also supported by Grouse, Seymour & Cypress Mountains.
