  1. One more thing about Adaptive Sports – with a dusting of snow up at Whistler and winter on the way, there are a number of Adaptive Skiing/Snowboarding programs in the Vancouver area. For the north shore mountains, check out: Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports (http://www.vass.ca/about/)

    There are also several programs available up at Whistler. For example:
