Bridge Program

The NSCD Bridge Program is designed to assist an athlete’s transition from recreational skiing to race training in the NSCD Competition Program with coaching from past Paralympic athletes. Athletes receive support in a development program that will potentially feed the NSCD and U.S. Adaptive Ski or Snowboard Teams. Instructors assist an athlete’s transition to full independence so they may enjoy the hill with their loved ones.

Locations: Winter Park Resort, CO
Price: $500 for 5 lessons
Includes: Winter Park season pass and instruction

A 2.59% Forest Service fee will be added to all lessons at Winter Park Resort on National Forest land.
