Scottish Visually Impaired Skiers

Our aim is to give visually impaired children and adults the opportunity to ski - both on the dry ski slope and on snow. Each visually impaired skier has a sighted guide who gives the skier verbal instruction, usually via a two-way radio. We offer the opportunity for those who are Visually Impaired, both young and not so young, to learn or improve the art of recreational skiing in a safe and controlled environment. Members have the opportunity to branch out into racing or take up cross country skiing.

We meet fortnightly on Saturdays between October to April or sometimes club sessions are arranged at different places or times. These may also include other social activities.

We can also offer opportunities for young competent sighted skiers to assist our visually impaired skiers as the service module for the Duke of Edinburgh award.
