Accessible Winter Sports Resort Guide

Finding the right location when you’re living with a disability can be tough. Try our interactive accessible resorts tool to find sports and resorts in Europe that are tailored to your needs.

This is a handy guide for those looking to start skiing with their friends or family but require some additional assistance (such as ski guides) and are unsure what their best options are.

The tool provides you with information to help you decide on the most suitable winter resort in Europe for a range of disabilities, learning difficulties or conditions such as :


• Autism (ASD)
• Learning Difficulties
• Epilepsy
• Hemiplegia
• Spina Bifida
• Paraplegic and Tetraplegic
• Amputee
• Parkinson's Disease
• Stroke
• Organ Transplant
• Epilepsy
• Parkinson's Disease
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Cancer
• Blind & Visually Impaired
• Deaf or Hard of Hearing
• Down's Syndrome


Depending on your selection, you will be given information about the most suitable resort options, types of slopes (beginner, intermediate or advanced) and lifts you will find, accommodation or facilities within each winter resort and any other notable features that will make sure that someone gets the best and most comfortable winter sports experience.


Also provided is information about resort/lift-pass discounts that may be available, distance to medical facilities, ski schools who provide specialised training for specific equipment e.g. adaptive dual ski and other useful information that may be needed such as resort altitude (something you may have to take into consideration if you have recently had surgery or treatment).
