one of the longest running premier adaptive winter sports programs in the Central New York Region. We are dedicated to ensuring that anyone who wants to is able to participate in winter sports to their fullest potential.

Each year, ARISE & Ski gives lessons to individuals with various disabilities including: spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, all developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, Lowe syndrome, behavioral disorders, vision impairments, and many others.

The program has grown over the years thanks to the support of the Hickey Family (staff at Toggenburg); the staff at Toggenburg; donations from individual donors, corporations, and agencies; the incredible volunteers that work with us; and all the skiers at Toggenburg that share the mountain with us.
