Switzerland has a rich and long reputation for being the home of winter sports and mountain activities! People have been travelling to the snowy mountains for health related problems and to rejuvenate for as long as anyone can remember - so it is not surprising that the Swiss are continuing to help many people overcome personal challenges and help give them a holiday to remember.
Switzerland is a perfect location for an adaptive ski holiday in the mountains catering for all health-related conditions, special needs, Mountains 4 All can provide a wide variety of itineraries and ideas as to how you can enjoy and make the most of your stay in this wonderful country. Please contact us for more information as she works in close partnership with many of the resorts and tourist offices to ensure we bring you the very best on offer!
Skiing with a physical or spinal injury condition, learning difficulties, blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, transplant or amputation is possible almost anywhere in the Swiss Alps. The choice is determined as to what instruction and equipment is available. In some ski resorts there are no trained adpative ski instructors but it is nearly always possible for another organisation to provide this such as Active Motion.
Switzerland and her mountains have been a place of rejuvenation and rehabilitation for centuries and there is something very special about how these mountains can help someone with a life-changing, life-limiting, special need or mental health condition, or trauma. You do not even have to ski as the resorts offer not only snow-sport activities but opportunities for people to simply sit back, relax whilst breathing in the rich mountain air and joining in the laughter of their family and friends.
Switzerland really does have so much to offer! For instance in the winter, many of the ski resorts offer adaptive and assisted skiing lessons, equipment and guiding for all physical, sensory, cognitive, mental, and other needs - it is just a question of finding what suits you and the best location.
Because everyone is an individual but may have some specific needs relating to a particular condition, we want to ensure that those needs are met. With our comprehensive and unique Portfolio of Inclusive and Accessible Mountain Experiences we can help you have a life-enhancing holiday or rehabilitation trip! Where possible we recommend ski schools, actitvity organizations, hotels, etc. that are known personally to us.
Our main contacts within a resort are the Tourist Office, snow-sport Instruction and lift operators. However we also have a number of brilliant partners working with us in a number of resorts and so we have also listed their contact details for you - they are delighted to help you with special info on a resort and in many cases have accommodation suitable for wheelchair users.
There are 173 ski resorts in Switzerland looked after by instructors from Swiss Ski & Snowboard Schools.
However it does not stop you contacting any of the other resorts if you know them or wish to ski there as perhaps if you are already a skier but just need some additional help they may well be able to advise and assist you!
Switzerland has so many wonderful ski resorts and many come within specific regions which are looked after by that Tourist Board.
We are continually adding information to our resort pages. If you do not see a particular ski resort listed it just means we have not yet added information.
The following is a guide to show the amount of information currently available on a resort. If you see the YELLOW and RED dots, this indicates that the website is currently lacking information but we do have it and you just need to contact us and we will be delighted to go through options with you!
