Advancing Adaptive Snowsports
CADS Calgary is a volunteer based non-profit charity that provides opportunities for people with disabilities to experience the joy of learning, participating and competing in alpine Snowsports. CADS Calgary is recognized as being the largest single location CADS program in Canada with 150-200 students each year.
Our aim is to create a safe, inclusive and fun learning environment. More than just sliding, our participants learn tangible life skills, gain confidence, and develop life long friendships!
Participants receive one on one, needs-based instruction from trained volunteers. In order to facilitate a great experience for all of our participants and volunteers, CADS invests in instructor training, as well as the research and development of adaptive equipment and
CADS also hosts an annual Festival at various Canadian ski resorts. Top CADS instructors from across the country provide daily lessons for participants of all skill levels, while social functions and an awards banquet add to the sense of camaraderie. To learn more, visit CADS Festival.
