The CXC Junior Adaptive Program works to make cross country skiing accessible to children with physical disabilities and visual impairments. With a little ingenuity and determination, we can get anyone out skiing. We all know the benefits of our sport. We utilize nearly every muscle under our control. Cardiovascular fitness and strength are tested. We recreate, train and compete outdoors. Adaptive skiing is no different, and we believe that reaching out and including people of all abilities strengthens the ski community as a whole.

Winter belongs to everyone!
