Skiing with disabilities

Disabled people can come and enjoy both the skiing and the mountains.

The resort of Les Angles offers specially adapted rates and ski lessons, with disabled access to the runs, the ‘Hors Sac’ room, restaurants, car parks, toilets, accommodation, and so on.

THE MATERIAL USED

  • A uniski, a sit-ski combining a seat, a chassis, and a suspension system on a single ski, used with a pair of outriggers for stability.

ADAPACC ASSOCIATION

The ADAPACC Association in Les Angles seeks to promote the development of physical activities for the disabled. It specialises in accompanying disabled skiers and has recently doubled its activity.

It helps skiers with over a dozen different pathologies, including people with cerebral palsy, paraplegics, tetraplegics, the partially or non-sighted, sufferers of Rett syndrome, mental retardation, multiple sclerosis, monoplegia in a lower limb, and cranial trauma.

Thanks to the ADAPACC monitors' understanding of disability, they can choose the right material to enable disabled people to enjoy skiing, whatever their degree of impediment.

It is not at all question of a gentle little trip down the slopes in which the disabled person is inactive or to all intents and purposes not really there. And so the pleasures of actively skiing are guaranteed, even for the most severely disabled people, thanks to the range of special material such as the GMS ski seat and the Trotiski, together with the monitors’ experience in teaching disabled people built up over the course of the years.

One of ADAPACC's missions is to train people, and it has been appointed by the manufacturer to train monitors in using the GMS seat and deliver the relevant diploma.
