For almost twenty years, People In Motion's Adaptive Snow Sports program has been operating out of Big White Ski Resort to assist people with special needs in learning to enjoy the ski hill. Their goal is to include children and adults in joining their friends and family on the slopes of Big White, and have serviced families all over the Okanagan Valley, Canada, and the world! Each instructor receives training on how to safely ski with equipment such as sit-skis, mono-skis, and tethers, and their training continues through the season as they continue to work with clients.

For inquiries on bookings for the 2015-2016 season, please email us at For more information on the program or how to volunteer with the PowderHounds, please visit their website.
