USDSSA - Mission
The US Deaf Ski and Snowboard Association (USDSSA) was founded in 1968 to promote the skiing culture among the Deaf, and to provide training and racing opportunities for deaf youth so they could go on to compete in the World Games for the Deaf. Over the past 51 years, many of our members have competed in world class competitions and have brought home numerous accolades.
Since ’68, we have upheld the tradition of hosting the biennial event, ASL Snowbomb*, and 2020 will mark the 25th ASL Snowbomb.
*In 2014, the name was officially changed from Deaf to ASL Snowbomb to be more inclusive of all members of the ASL community! We welcome everyone to join us in the weeklong event.
