SOLO provides outdoor winter educational and recreational opportunities for persons with disabilities from St. Joseph County, Ind., and nearby counties in an effort to:
Encourage independence and increase participation in family and community leisure opportunities
Educate the community regarding the capabilities of and opportunities for persons with disabilities
Skiing offers a freedom of movement that most persons with disabilities have never experienced. At the same time, it creates an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and unsurpassed confidence. A person who has difficulty walking will find themselves gliding smoothly down the hill with a newfound poise and agility.
We welcome both adults and children at least 8 years of age to join us. SOLO is open to students with physical, visual, auditory, or significant mental impairments.
