Disability Snowsport UK is 'striving to provide the opportunity for people with a disability to participate in winter sporting activities'. Anyone with a disability is eligible to participate. DSUK organises group winter sport trips to Scotland and overseas. Features of the trips are as follows:
  • Each activity is supported by volunteer helpers and qualified ski instructors.
  • There is a variety of participants, some seasoned travellers, some who have not been away on their own before. Everyone receives expert tuition and plenty of encouragement.
  • They offer advice on type of trip, location, accommodation to suit you best and organise a 'balanced' group in terms of amount of care required by participants.
  • Special trips are organised for schools and families.
  • Costs are comparable to brochure prices from ski holiday companies. A small charge is added to assist with their administration costs. There is no surcharge for any of the special facilities, equipment or volunteer personnel. No care charge is added: the helpers are volunteers. The skiers do not pay for helpers.
  • They can advise on extras, ski clothing and accommodation.
  • A brochure is produced giving full details of booking procedure and trips.
