Ski Buddies

If your athlete works well in group settings and you would like to book a group lesson through Aspen Ski School or is a participant in Aspen Valley Ski Club, Ascendigo can provide a volunteer ski buddy for extra one-on-one support on the mountain. 

Contact Caroline Long at clong@ascendigo.org for more information.

Please note that Ski Buddies have limited availability, and we require a 1-week notice prior to booking a ski buddy.
