Assisted Activities for People with Disabilities

Enhance your life or that of someone you know with assisted mountain activities as part of your holiday experience.

Explore the empowering benefits of both winter snow-sports and other year-round mountain activities: blind skiing, sit-skiing, 3-track skiing, alpine skiing, snowboarding, freestyle, extreme snow-sports, off-piste, telemark, biathlon, heli-skiing – from back-country to ski touring, cross country skiing, ski jeering (behind a horse), dog-sledging, snow-shoe walks, winter nature walks, ice-climbing – the list goes on as you can see!

A ski holiday for a blind or visually impaired child or adult is a magical time. Taking a ski holiday in a wheelchair and taking to the slopes in a sit-ski is an exhilarating experience!

Having Parkinson's or the onset of Dementia/Alzheimer's does not preclude continuing to enjoy life and a ski or summer holiday in the mountains in the right location is an enlightening experience.

Assisted mountain activities offer an accessible holiday or trip for everyone but participation and level of involvement will depend on the nature of the disability, additional needs, general health and well-being and cognitive, visual and audio state.

Mountains offer sport, well-being, food and music which helps with rehabilitation, rejuvenation, relaxation and establishing a renewed sense of self-esteem and confidence. As early as 460 BC, Hippocrates, the famous Greek Physician and Father of Medicine acknowledged the importance of exercise for strengthening the body, enhancing recovery from diseases, and for prevention and care of mental problems.

There are an enormous number of ski and winter sport instructors and guides, to be found around the world, whose expertise, empathy and enthusiasm are waiting to help you! - either with or without specialist equipment. Some organisations also develop and run adaptive and disabled ski programmes.

So what are you waiting for? Click on one of the sports that interests you and find out more about what you can do for yourself or for a family member or friend and start of journey of self-discovery, laughter, excitement and memories! Also don't forget that for some disabilities or health issues you may only spend a couple of hours skiing or such and so do click on to our ‘Non-Sporting Activities page' to see what else you and the family can do.

Our 'library' of comprehensive information on which ski resort or mountain location is suitable for you, whether in France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Australia, Sweden... is waiting for you to dip into and we are here to help find that perfect ski or summer holiday including wheelchair accessible accommodation. If you don't find what you are looking for or need advice and reassurance then do contact us.
