The U.S. Deaf Ski & Snowboard Association (USDSSA)




The U.S. Deaf Ski & Snowboard Association (USDSSA) is a non-profit recreational and competitive organization of Deaf and hard-of-hearing skiers and snowboarders, founded in 1968. USDSSA is a National Sports Organization (NSO) member of the USA Deaf Sports Federation (USADSF) and recognized by U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA).

USDSSA sponsors the biennial Deaf Ski & Snowboard Week Convention, which includes the U.S. Deaf Ski & Snowboard Championships, and is responsible for selecting members of the U.S. Deaf Alpine Ski Team, U.S. Deaf Snowboard Team, and U.S. Deaf Cross-Country Ski Team, which compete in Winter Deaf World Games every 4 years. The Deaf Alpine Ski Team also competes in the North American Deaf Ski Championships with Canada every 4 years. The USDSSA has a newsletter, The Deaf Skier & Snowboarder, which is published and distributed to the membership 3-times a year.

The Deaf Teams are now training for the Winter Deaflympics at Sundsvall, Sweden. The team is required to raise funds to cover team expenses.

USDSSA maintains a calendar of upcoming Deaf ski and snowboard activities, a list of resorts, which offer discount lift tickets to Deaf snow riders, and plans recreational trips to popular winter sports resorts.
