"Thank you to everyone for an absolutely amazing experience. You are all stars. I felt alive again and I am most definitely thinking about taking up mono skiing. It was so much better than wheelchair rugby!" (Hassan)

"I used to ski religiously all my life and its been great to get back on the slopes today for my first time in a sit ski. It was incredible and I have no words. Its been really good and I think I’m addicted already! I will most definitely be doing it again. It was very scary at the start because you are so out of control but you very quickly get the knack of it and its really really amazing." (Martha, 19 from Kent)

"Its been an absolutely fantastic day and my first time skiing. It definitely got the adrenaline going, I felt the freedom and its just been a really good experience. I would love to come back and get more independent at it. Thank you WheelPower for organising today. You are brilliant at what you do." (Callum from Essex)
