Disability Snowsport UK - Hillend Sessions, Midlothian

Disability Snowsport UK is a charity with a mission to enable anybody, regardless of their disability, to take part in and enjoy the thrill of snowsports.  The charity has existed for over 30 years, and has recently received a donation enabling us to begin to deliver ski lessons at Midlothian Snowsports Centre in the Pentland Hills.

The ski school has adaptive trained instructors and specialised equipment available to assist people to learn to ski both standing and sitting.  One of the first skiers to attend a lesson at the new DSUK ski school was Charlie, an 8 year old boy who was born with cerebral palsy.  Charlie learnt to ski using a piece of equipment called a biski, which is steered by leaning from side to side with the help of an instructor.  After his lesson, Charlie’s mum told DSUK that ‘Charlie absolutely loved the skiing and we will definitely be doing it again’.  Other skiers have reported benefits to their co-ordination, concentration and sociability as well as simply enjoying the new experience.

DSUK can deliver both group and individual lessons to people with physical, cognitive and sensory disabilities.  Please contact Louisa at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information, or call 08455219338 to book a lesson.
