Verbier4All

July 29, 2019

We caught up with Bethan Drinkall from SKi4All Wales to find out about an exciting new partnership they have forged with Verbier to put accessibility at the forefront.

"We are pleased to announce the creation of the charitable association, Verbier4All.

This is about inclusion! Verbier and the mountains that surround it, offer a wonderland that everyone should have the chance to enjoy. Verbier4All aims to make that happen. 

By providing access to the necessary equipment and trained ‘buddies’, by working closely with Téléverbier, the tourist office and local businesses, we aim to ensure that anyone, regardless of physical or visual deficit, can access the mountains all year round and enable Verbier to evolve into a gold standard resort for adaptive activities.

Verbier4All has already received the backing of Téléverbier which is now actively planning to make its infrastructures more user-friendly for people with a physical or visual deficit. Téléverbier has indicated that some improvements will already be apparent this summer.

Girl Power!

June 25, 2019

Snowsport Cymru Wales are really pleased and proud to see a significant rise in participation from females in snowsport activities through the past few years. At our schools events many of our competitions are now witnessing more girls than boys amongst the competitors, this is also happening at a club level. We believe there are a number of reasons why we see this phenomenon - excellent female role models in the sport being one great motivator for others to get and stay involved. We have been so lucky to have some fantastic female snowsports athletes featured on a World stage, including the recent successes of Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe. Ladies like this achieving brilliance will have helped to inspire the next generation to get involved.

Talking of the next generation - This month we wanted to highlight some young female snowsport stars that are aiming for the top of the mountain.
