As the season has come to an end, the CSF wants to thank everyone for the incredible season we had with the Canadian Adaptive Snowboard Program (CASP). With the great success we had with the CASP National Summit and the three other clinics that were run across the country we are all looking forward to seeing our sport grow over the seasons to come.

Adaptive Action Sports Freestyle Session at Windells Summer 2007
Adaptive Action Sports is proud to announce an amazing chance to snowboard in summertime: AAS Freestyle Session at Windells is on August 5 – 11, 2007. Windells Camp and AAS have joined forces to bring you, the adaptive athlete, a unique opportunity to ride with and learn from the pros on the glacier at Mt. Hood, Oregon.

AAS and Windells are catering an event unlike anything the adaptive snow community has ever seen. For you, the adaptive athlete, all of the above named amenities will be included with an “adaptive” twist.

Seeing as though each camper has a unique disability; their training will be equally as personal. If you are a hot-shot rider who can already throw down a Misty-Quadroflex-Son of Lee- I Steal Your Kneecaps- JollyRancher, we will place you with a coach who can show you how to tweak it out a little more. Or if you are a decent carver who is peering over the rim of the Halfpipe for the first time, we will teach you the method to ride it like a ninja.

Our goal is to up your level of riding to a higher standard and to make your experience a positive one. During the winter session last February, all of our campers walked away with a boardslide and a fistful of new tricks. We throw down! By the way, Shane Stallin is coaching again!!!!
