Ski-ing for the Disabled

Disability Snowsports UK is a registered Scottish Charity No 287106. In the UK it has six indoor snow centres. These are in Manchester, Tamworth, Hemel Hempstead, Braehead in Glasgow, Milton Keynes and Castleford. Amongst a variety of snow sport activities it provides opportunities to ski and snow board.

At the heart of Disability Snowsports is the desire to increase opportunities, fitness, mobility, freedom, social interaction, independence and skill of people with disabilities, and to identify and nurture the abilities of young potential athletes. Age however, is not necessarily a limiting factor. Its mission is to promote equality and opportunity for people with disabilities to take part in snowsports. Also to help improve their enjoyment at a standard of performance appropriate to their level of choice.

The cost of a lesson includes all adaptive ski instruction, lift passes and equipment. All you need to bring are warm clothes and gloves. Helmets are provided and have to be worn.
Castleford in the West Riding is the nearest centre to E. Yorkshire and the centre is located at Colorado Way, WF10 4TA. Details of lessons can be obtained by phoning the HQ on 01479 861 272 or emailing on admin@disabilitysnowsport.org.uk.
