BC Adaptive Snowsports is the Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) responsible for the development of the sport of Para-alpine in BC.

Please refer to the Long Term Skier Development for more information about the pathway for a para-alpine athlete from grassroots to the National Team. 

The BC Para-alpine Athlete Development and Support program focuses on the Skiers Essentials to Train to Train stages of the LTAD for Para-alpine.The objective of the The BC Para-alpine Athlete Development and Support program program is to identify, engage, and develop Para-alpine athletes with the ultimate goal of being identified by the Canadian Para-alpine Ski Team (CPAST).  

Our vision is to remain the strongest provincial Para-alpine program in the country.  We believe that we can be leaders in Canadian Para-alpine sport.  BC Adaptive Snowsports will continue to develop athletes for the national team, to represent Canada and BC on the international and Paralympic level. We do this by identifying and targetting athletes for support within the Canadian Sport Institute system, athlete assistance bursaries, coaching and training support and high level race training and skill development camps and recreational races (See All Mountain Camps)

Athletes that meet the criteria and are nominated to the targeted athlete can apply for the BC Adaptive Snowsports Athlete Assistance Bursary.
