Overview

We are a charitable ski club for anyone with physical or learning disabilities who wants to try a sport that they thought was beyond them. We meet on the second Sunday of the month and is open to any age group who want to try or revisit skiing. With the help of volunteers we use adaptive equipment or different techniques to help people gain confidence to take part in this brilliant sport of skiing. Once a year we put the hard work into practice on the slopes of Italy.

Attending the club:

A taster session is always a good idea if you would like to try skiing ,this is only £5 from Jan 2020. More information about this is on our website www.solentskiclub.org.uk . Individuals can only have one taster session. Once participants become a member they are welcome to the sessions although the club retains the right to restrict the number of people skiing from a safety perspective.
To ski with the club there is a requirement to become a member (annual £50 family, £30 individual) and then there is a charge of £8/ session (from Jan 2020).

When we meet:

Second Sunday once a month 10 a.m. to 12

Equipment:

No specialist equipment, we will provide that. Please bring along appropriate clothing for a dry ski slope (long sleeve tops, trousers, and gloves).

Accessibility Information:

The car park is at the end of an un-tarmacked track past Vermont School. The ski slope is accessed via a set of steps running parallel to the ski slope. Skiers with limited mobility contact the chairman for details of alternative parking arrangement at info@solentskiclub.org
