Disability Snowsport UK works in partnership with snow domes and slopes across the UK to offer lessons and recreational snowsport for individuals, families and groups. They provide skiing and snowboarding for everyone, regardless of disability, injury or experience.
Disability Snowsport UK welcomes people with all types of disability, from complex physical disabilities or long term conditions, to neurodiverse skiers and snowboarders. Sit skiing, snowboarding, and stand up skiing are available.
For more than forty years, a fantastic team of highly qualified adaptive instructors as well as a brilliant network of passionate and skilled volunteers have worked to ensure that everybody can have the opportunity to access Snowsport.
Local Groups offer the opportunity for recreational adaptive skiing. The groups enable members to ski together at dry slopes and indoor snow centres throughout the country.
The groups have a wide selection of adaptive snowsport equipment, which, along with dedicated trained volunteers, allows skiers and boarders with a large range of disabilities to enjoy snowsports away from the formal setting of a lesson. This enables disabled skiers and boarders to practise what they have learnt during lessons or simply enjoy a few runs together in a friendly social group. They are run by volunteers and seek to provide a safe environment for everyone taking part in the Local Groups’ activities.
