Skiing

Skiing in the UK on both dry slopes and mountanous areas is a great way to keep in shape for the Alps and hone your skills in a safe environment.

After learning to safely turn and stop, participants can progress to advanced carving, racing or freestyle techniques. Skiing is open to participants with any manner of cognitive and/or physical disabilities, using a pair of long, flat runners, called skis, to control speed and direction.

Pros

  • Fun winter activity for all ages
  • Culture, community and lifestyle
  • An activity for life

Cons

  • Isn’t cheap
  • Limited options in the UK

Training & Qualifications

You do not need formal skiing qualifications unless you want to instruct or guide. Expert training and instruction is highly recommended for all levels.

Gear

Snow sports can be expensive for something which you do maybe once or twice a year. Most ski and snowboard schools offer equipment for hire, with different skis available for more speed and control as you progress.

Your own boots and warm winter clothing are sound investments.
