What People Say about Schladming and Ski 2 Freedom Foundation

The following are delighted to share their experiences with you on how Schladming was able to assist and empower them to have a life enhancing winter and ski holiday. If you would like to speak directly with one of our beneficiaries please contact us so we can put you in touch – sometimes sharing a similar condition can be most reassuring especially for first timers!

*We have skied here a number of times and I never tire of it. There are a number of runs to choose from and keeps the whole family happy. The ski operators recognize the mono ski immediately and always slow the lift down irrespective of whether it is an instructor with Seamus, or me. The instructors who go out with Seamus always accommodate me and are always helpful. We have even ventured to another mountain and the instructor carried the sit ski where necessary and we went in his car.

For the family, I can’t fault it. We can all ski together, as it never seems that busy. There is never an issue with the kids as it is a family oriented resort and safety is paramount.* Family skiing with Freizeit - sit-ski and Schladming
