Adaptive programme

If you want to learn ski or snowboard or to improve the skills you already have or if you just want to explore the mountain The Remarkables Adaptive Program has the qualified instructors, specialised adaptive equipment and trained volunteers to get you there. We support adults and children with any disability – physical, cognitive, or sensory.


With the wide range of specialist equipment now available, it doesn't matter what your ability level is.

For example, some of our sit skis can be set up to turn with a tilt of the head. If you are willing and able, then there are virtually no limits as to where and how you can play on our slopes.

If you need the support of a trained volunteer to assist you during instruction, we have a great team to help at no extra cost. Volunteers are an important support for our instructors as they work with you to improve your skills and get you having more fun.

The team includes some of the most qualified adaptive instructors in the country and a pool of passionate and experienced volunteers. Our goal is to assist you with reaching your goals and exceeding them wherever possible. Anyone with learning difficulties is catered for through the Adaptive Programme. 

The Remarkables Adaptive Snow Sports programme operates during our official ski season. Contact us well in advance to ensure that equipment, volunteers and instructors are available. 

Snow Sports NZ is the national advocate for adaptive snow sports, supporting programmes at New Zealand's alpine resorts. Become a member of Adaptive Snow Sports NZ and take advantage of our great discounts at The Remarkables.




One on one lessons with a qualified adaptive instructor are available most times throughout the day at the early bird Private Lesson rate.

All adaptive lessons need to be pre‐booked.

Volunteer support is available before and after the lesson time. This will enable you to get the most out of the lesson and to consolidate what the instructor has taught. NZSki provide a 50% discount on Adapative equipment hire for SSNZ members.
