Disability

No matter what your disability there is no excuse for staying off the slopes. Most slopes and clubs have facilities for disabled skiers. There have been many advances in equipment in recent years which has made the sport even more accessible for anyone who wants to have a go.

There are a number of Snowsport England affiliated clubs that offer disability skiing. These are Lions, Kendal, Midlands, Norwich, Gloucester, Exeter, Solent Ski Club for the Disabled, Aldershot Snowsports for the Disabled and Southern Disabled Ski Clubs. To find contact information for these please go to the club finder and they will welcome you along to their club sessions.
