Handiski & Adaptive Skiing
The instructors at the ESF Ski School are specially trained and have a range of adapted ski equipment including skibots, single ski, double ski, GMS and bi-ski.
Their aims are to:
- Help you to explore the mountain environment
- Discover and share the thrills of snowsports
- Push back the limits of disability to autonomy
Equipment hire is included in the lesson price & it's highly recommended to book well in advance of your holiday.
