ABOUT OAS:

Oregon Adaptive Sports has been breaking barriers in Central Oregon since 1996, providing people with disabilities opportunities for outdoor recreation. Our goal is to nurture the human spirit and foster confidence, build self-esteem and strive for independence. We currently offer instructional programs in alpine and Nordic skiing and snowboarding, at both Hoodoo and Mt. Bachelor ski resorts as well as summer programs throughout the greater Bend area.  To prevent cost from being a barrier to participation, we rely on the support of hundreds of volunteers, businesses, donors and sponsors.
