Aldershot Snowsports for the Disabled
Aldershot Snowsports for the Disabled is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club that allows people of all ages to experience different types of snowsports in a safe and secure environment. Learning how to ski and snowboard is good for building strength, coordination and confidence, and is also great fun!
The Club has over 100 members and we aim to cater for every standard and for most disabilities. Our current members range from complete beginners to more advanced skiers and boarders. A number of our skiers have also joined the slope’s race training sessions and have also competed in the Special Olympics World Games.
Snowsports for all
ASD provides opportunities for disabled people to experience skiing and snowboarding, mainly through its monthly sessions at the Aldershot dry ski slope, although it also provides trips throughout the year to enable disabled people to experience snowsports on real snow.
