It’s possible to go skiing and snowboarding with just about any disability…
The level of assistance you will need will be entirely disability related. Special adapted equipment is necessary for some people.
Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK) is an organisation that works to make sure that anyone with a disability, may it be learning, sensory or physical, can ski or snowboard alongside other people. They cater for complete novices to snowsports all the way to advanced participants with both snowsports schools and local groups scattered around the country.
