Family Ski Holiday in Montgenèvre (FR) - Pitt Hopkins Syndrome

Ski Holiday in Montgenèvre (FR) - Pitt Hopkins Syndrome

*"Dear Catherine, Just a note to say a massive thank you for arranging the pilot ski in Montgenèvre. We got home this afternoon and have had the most brilliant week.

Florian (ESF Montgenèvre) was very helpful on the first day. My husband and I both piloted the ski but we also hired Francois Claude from ESF for four days (2 hours each day) to pilot the ski so we could ski with our friends, other children and, of course, Emily! Francois was brilliant with Emily and I could hear her giggling over every bump he took her over.....lovely to hear!

We found everyone in the resort really friendly and the lift attendants were very helpful and attentive. Lots of great skiing for everyone in our group and plenty of wide blues and green for me to practice and get more confidence with the pilot ski.

We enjoyed Montgenèvre so much we have booked the accommodation (Le Pot de Miel) again already for half term next year! If there was any possibility of booking the pilot ski again that would be wonderful.

Once again many thanks for all your help. You have helped us have a truly wonderful family holiday. Kindest regards Victoria Walker (mother of Emily)"*

Emily was born with Pitt Hopkins Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes moderate-to-severe intellectual disability and developmental delays, breathing problems, gastrointestinal issues, and recurrent seizures.

Ski 2 Freedom @ski_2_freedom would like to thank @EsfMontgenevre for all their help in making this accessible and inclusive dream ski holiday become a reality for Emily and her family. The guided dual-ski (guided sit-ski) was donated by @ski_2_freedom from funds donated to the charity by Madame Victoria Cervera.
