Are you a confident skier or snowboarder?
We offer an exciting opportunity to volunteer on our adaptive ski camp this coming season - “Ski & Ride” camp 21 – 28 March in Val Thorens, France.
Access Adventures aims to improve the quality of life for people with physical disabilities through organising residential adaptive sports camps.
There will be 6 disabled participants on this camp, all sit-skiers. We hope they will return from the camp with a great sense of achievement after the challenge of progressing in adaptive skiing and being in an inaccessible environment. Instruction is provided by Paralympic skiers.
Access Adventures needs some able-bodied volunteers to help the camp run more smoothly. As a small charity, we unfortunately have very limited funding. If you are able to cover the cost of your flight, we can offer the camp (ski-in ski-out accommodation, full board, lift pass, equipment rental) for a £725 donation. If covering your own costs would be difficult then fundraising could be an option? We can provide assistance with this if needed.
Volunteers need to be confident skiers or snowboarders, adaptive ski experience is not essential. Roles undertaken may include:
General motivation and encouragement
Assisting participants with transfers/ getting around on snow
Assisting sit-skiers to load chairlifts
Assisting sit-skiers if they fall
We hope that you would benefit from the experience by learning about adaptive skiing. In addition to that, volunteering with us can be extremely rewarding.
There will also be opportunities for free ski time.

We would greatly appreciate any support you can give!
