About Us

Based in Canmore, Alberta, Rocky Mountain Adaptive (RMA) is a registered charity

providing individuals of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate, learn and

excel at mountain sport and recreation. We work to remove cognitive, physical and 

social barriers to the participation, supporting guests at every step, roll, or glide. RMA

has witnessed, first hand, the benefits of participation in its programs that go beyond 

the social aspects of equality and inclusion. 

Rocky Mountain Adaptive (RMA) started 

in 2009 with a dream: to promote adaptive sport, create independence, and develop 

opportunities. The foundation of RMA began with adaptive ski lessons at Sunshine 

Village Ski Resort in Banff, AB. This dream grew into a community, connecting guests 

to adventures and supporters to opportunities, redefining the definition of ability.

Locations Served: SW Alberta - planning on expansion to Jasper, Edmonton, Red Deer,

  Calgary, and Lethbridge

Ages Served: 4+ years

Areas of Service: Community Inclusion

Supports/Programs Offered: Adaptive Outdoor Sports

No Limits Winter Program 

Rocky Mountain Adaptive’s winter programming primarily includes alpine skiing,
snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, gymnastics, climbing, ice skating,
and curling. While most of our alpine lessons are based at Sunshine Village, we offer
lessons and programs at Norquay, Lake Louise, and Nakiska. For cross-country skiing
and showshoeing, we are partnered with the Canmore Nordic Centre and Trail Sports
and Ultimate Para Sports Association in Calgary. 

No Limits Summer Program

The summer season begins at the beginning of June and runs into September as
weather permits. We offer cycling, mountain biking, paddling, swimming, climbing,
golfing, fishing, yoga, baseball, and skateboarding. Additionally, we offer a five-day
Friends & Family Camp at William Watson Lodge where guests have accessible
accommodation and access to adaptive activities and social events in the third week
of August. In May 2023, we are offering daily adaptive mountain biking, paddling,
and hiking at William Watson Lodge.
