The ski instructors at Bottineau Winter Park participated in a two day adaptive training this weekend, through the Professional Ski Instructors of America.  The instructors practiced using different types of adaptive equipment and using different teaching techniques to help all skiers become as independent as they can.


Annie’s House at Bottineau Winter Park is a year round adaptive recreational facility, located in North Dakota’s scenic Turtle Mountains. Built to honor Ann Nicole Nelson, a Stanley, ND native who perished in the 9/11 attacks, this facility is an inclusive place for family and friends to enjoy all Bottineau has to offer. Since 2013, Anne Carlsen Center and Bottineau Winter Park have been working together to nurture abilities and change lives, through outdoor adventure!

Activities include hiking, fishing, and archery, among many others. Now that winter is here our main focus is adaptive skiing. Our instructors are certified through the Professional Ski Instructors of America, and can accommodate all ages and abilities. Besides the specially trained instructors, we offer modifications and adaptive equipment to help ensure that every person’s experience is successful. We are also grateful that we get to offer these experiences at no charge to the participant.
