Our Adaptive Winter Sports Program runs from January through March. The 2019 Winter Calendar will be available in mid-October!

12pm – Lunch time
1pm – Back on the slopes
3pm – Call it a day
We would like to be able to accept every child that applies to the Double H, but we often receive more interest than we have space for! All applications are subject to a medical review by our Nursing Director. Decisions regarding acceptance are based upon the child’s inability to attend a typical mountain, the severity of the child’s medical needs and other factors (age, gender, etc.). Double H Ranch reserves the right to make selections/decisions based on other factors as deemed appropriate by the qualified staff.
Once approved for the Adaptive Winter Sports Program, confirmation letters will be e-mailed to you. If your child is put on a waiting list, we will contact you if we have a cancellation.
