Make A Difference!

Canadian Adaptive Snowsports (CADS) Calgary is able to operate thanks to the generous contributions of donors, sponsors and strategic partners like you!

Your contributions, large and small, will fund the purchasing of adaptive skiing and snowboarding equipment and subsidize the fees that students pay for lessons, easing the financial burden placed upon families.

Not only will you be helping some remarkable individuals descend the snow covered mountain, but you’ll be promoting health and wellness, while fostering the development of independence and willpower, strengths we all need as we tackle life’s various mountains.

Testimonial from Sponsors

Why the Carlsons’ choose CADS:

You can always find us outside enjoying the beautiful spaces Alberta has to offer - skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, biking - the list goes on! We wanted to support an organization that promotes inclusivity in the outdoors, since everyone has the right to be outside and enjoy these spaces! CADS not only provides students and families with the opportunity to get outside and onto the ski hill, but also a place to build lasting friendships with others in the community. CADS has become a second family to us - we are forever thankful for the life-long connections we have made with the students, instructors, and other volunteers.
