Assisted Mountain Activities in Davos and Klosters

Overview

Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful Prattigau Valley, Klosters is a hidden gem which has maintained its authentic charm. Chalets built in the traditional style blend happily with local farmhouses while the absence of large tour operators and its safe and cosy atmosphere make Klosters a perfect choice for family holidays.

The pretty Swiss ski resort of Klosters, is a 2 hour and 15 minute train ride away from Zurich airport. The Gotschnabahn cable car is situated next to the railway station and takes you up into the world famous Parsenn skiing area. While mainly a winter destination, Klosters is also ideal for hiking, cycling and golf holidays in the summer.

Ski Schools and Assisted Sport Providers in Davos and Klosters

SSS Klosters

www.sssk.ch/en

The ski school at present does not have any sit-skis or specialist material available for skiing with a disability. However, following the successful week of disabled/adaptive skiing in March 2013 organised by Skiing with Heroes (a charity registered in England to help Veterans from the Armed Services) there has been great interest expressed by some of the ski instructors to undertake training for disabled skiing under the expert guidance of Reini Linder and Active Motion. Ski 2 Freedom works alongside Active Motion to promote snow-sport activities in the Swiss Mountains and uses this wonderful organisation to help provide equipment and instructors in various ski resorts around Switzerland for clients.

However, in our experience many ski schools are able to offer instruction or guidance for people with a learning difficulty or perhaps a small balance impairment.

Equipment Available

Please contact the ski school for more information on booking lessons and equipment hire.

  • No sit skis held in resort - obtained from local club
