Ski karting in Sweden
‘’It’s made me more confident, more enthusiastic about life, it’s opened my eyes as to what’s possible. It’s also prompted me to volunteer for Back Up, to go on more courses and hopefully lead one some day.’’
Paul (48), Sweden participant
- Sweden, Saturday 13th – Sunday 21st January 2018
This course is for people with a higher level spinal cord injury, where hands and arm function is affected, who use manual chairs, manual chairs with e-motion wheels or power chairs. It is also suitable for vented participants. The aim of the course is to boost your confidence in a challenging and exciting environment. There will be a nurse or PA for every participant on this course.
The course takes place in Sweden and all participants will fly there and back. This may be the first time that you have flown since your injury which will help develop confidence and independence. You will stay in a hotel in the centre of the resort for the duration of the course. There will also be the opportunity to experience the local apres ski and to use the fantastic swimming pool facilities which the hotel has to offer.
Everyone will have one-to-one ski tuition at the National Ski School for the Disabled which is one a not-for-profit ski school organisation. You will be supported by experienced ski instructors and Back Up volunteers.
