Season and Rates
The Bill Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program was founded by dedicated ski school instructor with the backing of Holiday Valley Resort and the ski patrol in September, 1988. Bill Lounsbury, a patrolman and friend, lost a leg to cancer in the 1980s. He was not about to give up his love of skiing. Bill taught himself to ski on one leg and became an inspiration to many.
In 1988, there were 4 instructors and 14 students. That year 32 lessons were taught. We have come a long way since then, now with approximately 50 volunteer instructors teaching on average 220 lessons per season. All instructors are specially trained in adaptive ski teaching methods. More than half of the instructors are certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA).
