Disability Skiing Wales

March 29, 2018

Disability Skiing Wales works to train volunteers and works with athletes with varying disabilities at ski centres across Wales. DSW are committed to developing people's confidence, fitness and social skills within the sessions that they hold.


Catching up with Peter Harris, SSW Disability and Inclusion Director, he had the following to say about the club he works with:

"Disability Skiing Wales uses specialised equipment where necessary with specifically trained volunteers and instructors. The club is also very big on social events and has christmas parties, summer BBQ's and is all about having fun.

In doing so, people develop confidence, fitness and social skills. It also allows volunteers the opportunity to improve their skiing and meet new friends.

In 2014 Disability Skiing Wales became a Centre of Excellence, further demonstrating the dedication and commitment to providing accessibility to all who are interested in skiing. 

In 2017 the immensely talented  (now Paralympic champion) Menna Fitzpatrick became the club's Patron and President. Menna will be visiting North Wales in the near future, having been an inspiration to all at the recent Paralympics.

Due to the increase in interest generated by the success in adaptive skiing at the Paralympics, DSW are now recruiting more volunteers, skiers, instructors and guides to assist in the running of the club."
