For participants needing assistance with mobility CRIS has a variety of sizes of snow sleds called “Pulks.” These sleds allow participants to sit comfortably and stay warm while they experience the beauty of winter. Two volunteers operate each Pulk: one volunteer stays in front to pull, and the other remains in the back maintaining balance and direction. If a participant is able, they can contribute by helping to push the sleigh along using shortened ski poles.
Our adaptive snowshoeing activities include a variety of styles and sizes of snowshoes to ensure participants are fitted comfortably in proper snowshoes. For increased balance and stability, CRIS has a wide selection of trekking poles outfitted with baskets at the end to help improve mobility through the snow.
