Adaptive Ski Lessons
Overcoming impairments to enjoy the freedom of the mountains
The ES Adaptive Programme aims to assist people with disabilities so that they can enjoy the thrill and freedom of the mountains with family and friends, whether the impairment is sensory, cognitive or physical. European Snowsport offers a unique service to all clients; the less able, disabled or the elderly. Our highly experienced and qualified adaptive instructors provide bespoke adaptive tuition, guiding and equipment for all types of skiers. We love teaching both beginners and full-time athletes and are passionate about ensuring that you gain the ultimate snow experience. With the correct equipment and instruction, everyone can enjoy the thrill of the mountains.
The ES Adaptive Programme is linked with European Snowsport, and runs in association with Disability Snowsport UK. Thanks to the generous support of the Verbier population, we are fortunate enough to have one of the best equipped adaptive snowsport schools in Europe.
ES Adaptive is able to cater for all the adaptive disciplines with level 2 instructors; mono-ski, bi-ski, visual impairment, 3 and 4 track skiing, and learning disabilities. We have had complete beginners as well as those with more experience.

Want to get involved?
We are very fortunate to have the dedicated support of volunteers to provide on-snow support and help with our lessons. A lot of time and effort goes into adaptive snowsports and without this generous support it would not be possible for us to run. If you would like to be involved in our adaptive programme and help out, please get in touch as we are always looking for volunteers. You can contact the ES office on [email protected] or complete our form below:
