the title makes me think it's for handicapped riders.

I don't know how you are going to get anyone who has to sit ski out in the backcountry without a snow cat or some one towing them in. This adventure does not sound like it's set up for that. I know there are other adventures out there that cater to the sit skier getting bc turns.

And what are those? My dad is disabled but absolutely loves the mountains in colorado. I think something like sit skiing would be great for him.

Does he know how to sit ski already or are you talking about him learning to sit ski? If it's the former, call around to the snow cat operations in the state. I know some of them have experience in this area.

If it's the latter, Winterpark has an internationally recognized program in adaptive skiing. I've met several people who have come from Europe to learn to sit ski there. There are other mountains that have sit ski programs, I just know that Winterpark is one of the best there is.
