The Outdoors for All Foundation began in 1978 with fifteen children with disabilities learning to downhill ski at The Summit at Snoqualmie. After a successful first season, the program was incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization in 1979 and originally called the Ski for All Foundation.
Because of its history, Outdoors for All may best be known for winter season instruction in sports like snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing. Besides these snow-based activities, Outdoors for All also provides instruction and outdoor activities including cycling, hiking, river rafting, kayaking, day camps, water skiing, rock-climbing, camping and customized group events.
