Both cross-country and downhill skiing, like any other sports, carry an inherent risk of injury. Students will be made aware of potential risks associated with these activities and will be given instruction on how to protect themselves against the elements and avoid injuries while participating in these activities. Volunteers are trained to help our students learn to ski in a safe manner.
SOLO is a member of Disabled Sports USA, which covers the program under its group liability coverage. SOLO is fully insured as a dues-paying and insurance-paying affiliate of Disabled Sports USA. In order to protect our volunteers and students, more than a third of SOLO's annual budget goes towards this important expense.
