About Disability Skiing Wales
We are an entirely voluntary organisation whose aim is to bring the joys of snow sports to disabled people.
Typically some examples of disabilities catered for are:
- Blind - with training bars and/or radios used for assistance
- Single leg amputees - using outriggers
- Double leg amputees - using Sit Skis with small outriggers
- Paraplegics - using Sit Skis and Ski Karts
- Quadriplegics - using a Pilot ski
- Cerebral Palsy
- Special needs
Specialised equipment is used where necessary with helpers being specifically trained in its use. We are always looking for non disabled helpers whether you are able to ski or not.
On the social side, we have Christmas parties, summer BBQs, firework nights, residential weekends, quizzes and have fun!
By partaking in our lessons and sessions disabled people develop confidence and fitness and social skills, which improves their quality of life. It also gives the volunteer the opportunity to improve their skiing and meet new friends.
In 2014 Disability Skiing Wales became a Centre of Excellence, further demonstrating our dedication and commitment to providing accessability to all who are interested in skiing.
