The City of Toronto has entered into a co-venture with Ontario Track 3 Ski Association at Centennial and Earl Bales Parks Ski & Snowboard Centres. A downhill, rehabilitative, recreational ski and snowboard program is offered to children and youth with special needs, ages 6-19. Individual instruction and adaptive ski / snowboard equipment is provided.
To participate in this program you must register through Ontario Track 3 Ski Association. There may be a waiting list initially while the association evaluates participants’ level of ski / snowboard ability, which will determine the appropriate individualized equipment and volunteer support. Toronto residents will have the first opportunity above others for spots at Centennial and Earl Bales Parks Ski and Snowboard Centres. To find out how to register, please call Ontario Track 3 at 416-233-3872.
Ontario Track 3 is a volunteer-driven organization and is always looking for volunteers to help out.
