Whether it is a physical or cognitive disability, our adaptive instructors employ a range of equipment and techniques to make skiing possible for many types of people. Previous customers have included people with visual impairments, alzheimers, autism, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, amputees and wheelchair users as well as many others.
Where do we ski?
Adaptive ski lessons take place in the ski areas of Spieljoch, Hochfugen and Hochzillertal, which have a variety of terrain to suit all levels of skier. Most adaptive lessons are on a one-to-one basis with the instructor, although we can offer group lessons where appropriate. A typical week usually includes five days of instruction (from Monday to Friday), with 2 lessons of 1.5 hours per day and a lunch break in between, although we do sometimes amend the regular lesson plan to suit the individual needs of the person.
Where do we stay?
There are a several hotels and apartments to choose from. all based within a 5 minute walk of the gondola ski lift. Where needed, minibus transportation to and from the ski lessons will be organized by your instructor and the Redpoint Team in resort. Wheelchair accessible rooms are possible to book at the Hotel Bruno and also at the Garden Hotel Crystal, which also has an accessible swimming pool and spa. There is also an accessible ground-floor self-catering apartment with wheel-in shower facilities. Other accommodation requests, such as a walk-in shower, a room near the lift for easy access, quiet room, or a quiet corner to sit in the restaurant at meal times can be catered for.
