Skiing with learning disabilities
Skiing is possible for everyone, e.g. for people with trisomy 21, autism, ADD and other learning disabilities! Special aids make it possible to automate certain movements, such as braking, and thus build up a muscle memory. This means that the student does not have to be able to follow clear instructions. Fun and safety are always in the foreground, so learning goes by itself!
People with various disabilities can ski a Bi-Ski. It is suitable, for example, for people with spastic paralysis, hemiplegia and craniocerebral trauma! Even people with the most severe physical and mental disabilities can practice the popular sport with this ski with the more or less support of a ski instructor. With the highly developed technology of the various Bi-Skis, nothing stands in the way of disabled skiing.
Mono skiing is the ideal winter sport for people with paraplegia or other mobility disabilities. People with good upper body coordination (e.g. cross-section up to approx. TH5) can ski the Mono-Ski. Depending on one’s own abilities, all slopes can be explored without limits. Both chair lifts and drag lifts can be used.
Skiing with visual impairment
Persons who are blind or visually impaired can learn to ski or further develop their skills through an individual guided tour method. The best method is worked out together with the student. Skiing for the blind is possible for people with various visual impairments.
Stand-up skiing with outrigger – Three-Track & Four-Track
People with amputations or a weakened body can use outrigger to practice the popular winter sport and learn how to ski through an individual teaching structure. Skiing with outrigger is possible on slopes of all levels of difficulty.
