The VASS Adaptive Alpine Racing Program operates in partnership with the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club.
Known as “The Blue Streaks,” this program is designed for intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders with physical or intellectual disabilities who have a keen interest in racing.
If you are a strong, confident skier capable of navigating a Blue run, we’d love to discuss the possibility of you joining our team.
Team members will commence dry land training in the fall, followed by on-site training and racing at Grouse on Thursday evenings and Saturdays. The team actively participates in local races at Grouse Mountain, as well as other races held in ski areas throughout the province.
Depending on their ability, racers utilize recreational skis and boots or specialized race equipment.
Thursday evenings: 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Saturdays: 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Duration: January to March 2024
Location: Meet at 5:30 PM on Thursdays and 7:00 AM on Saturdays outside Starbucks at the base of Grouse Mountain.
