Panorama Adaptive Sports Society

Panorama Adaptive Sports Society

The Panorama Adaptive Sports Society (PASS) is a group of passionate volunteers and athletes who work hard to allow everyone to find joy in sport. The group is led by Catrien, a local physiotherapist, who has a passion for equitable movement. In the winter they offer support to locals who wish to downhill ski or snow board, and support Panorama Mountain Village as they offer lessons to guests of the resort.

In 2017, PASS was successful in obtaining a Canada 150 grant which was used to purchase ski jackets for their volunteers. While serving a functional purpose, these jackets identify the volunteers on the mountain and provides awareness of their program. The grant was made possible by a federal Canada 150 grant and a donation by part-time resident, W. Brett Wilson.
