Skiing for Disabled
Skiing for Disabled is a volunteer-driven support network within SASKI managing the Saskatchewan Disabled Ski Program. We subscribe to the "Moving to Inclusion" concept initiated by Health and Fitness Canada in co-operation with 11 national associations, provincial education departments, school divisions and other education experts. Our certified instructors promote the wonderful world of skiing for the disabled through training on safe adaptive equipment and nationally recognized training methods.
Whether it be snowboarding, mono-skiing, bi-skiing, nordic sitskiing, biathlon, four-tracking or three-tracking, our instructors will help you achieve new heights and join in the fun of these exciting winter sports. Ski events for skiers with disability, volunteer training courses for local programs, and certification programs for instructors are some of the many opportunities available to those who become members.
Members are welcome to access our Adaptive Equipment Network and resource library, or enquire about purchasing provincially-constructed adaptive equipment (alpine sledges and nordic sitskiis). We encourage everyone who is interested, whether you are physically or mentally challenged or have sensory impairment, to please check what we have to offer.
