Assisted Mountain Activities - Who Benefits

Whether your child, or yourself, were born with a life-changing or life-limiting condition; suffered a trauma or have had an accident that has changed your life; having mental health problems; or you or your child has been diagnosed with a degenerative disease or illness it can be, and usually is, a source of extreme frustration and anger. It’s only too easy to cave in and give up. On the other hand, contrary to what you might think, being in the mountains and alpine regions can be enormously empowering and give a real sense of freedom: skiing, snowsports, and every type of experience can offer all kinds of possibilities - the range of which is increasing rapidly.

You don’t have to ski to be empowered by the mountains – you may be able to walk, walk on snow-shoes, join family and friends by using a guided sit-ski, or just relax. However, don’t assume that adaptive and assisted skiing is limited to the sit-ski. Much will depend on the nature and severity of your condition but you can ski even if your sight is impaired or you have MS, or you have lost a limb. There are many activities that cater for a wide range of health related conditions. Not only will you regain confidence and a social life, you may even go on to compete!

The role of Mountains 4 All is to help you be reassured about what you can do. Catherine Cosby, our Founder and Founder of Ski 2 Freedom Foundation, herself has a daughter born with a catastrophic genetic disorder (Rett Syndrome) and also has over 12 years of experience in researching, sourcing and working in the mountains to provide you, your family, and friends with the most comprehensive and special information and advice! So do contact her direct catherine.cosby@mountains4all.org or use our on-line enquiry form.

We hope you will find useful information on the possibilities for specific conditions in the pages below. Please do contact us for further information and assistance, because what may suit one person may not suit another, even with the same condition. We will be very happy to help tailor your special holiday!
