Adaptive skiing in Verbier
People with disabilities have access to the entire skiing domain, however, the Savolyeres side is a bit trickier as the main access to the area (via the old gondola) isn’t well suited so it is best avoided.
The lift company, Téléverbier SA, can accommodate the follwing equipment on most of the lifts throughout the ski resort: uniski, dualski, dualski with pilot and a tandemski with pilot.
If you'd like someone to accompany you on the slopes, speak to European Snowsport Ski School as they have an adaptive programme to offer a unique service to all clients; the less able, disabled or the elderly. Their highly experienced and qualified adaptive instructors provide bespoke adaptive tuition, guiding and equipment for all types of skiers, boarders, beginners or full-time athletes and are passionate about ensuring that you gain the ultimate snow experience. The ES Adaptive Program is linked with European Snowsport, and runs in association with Disability Snowsport UK. Booking in advance is highly recommended.
The École Suisse de Ski may also be able to help as they have qualified instructors who can help you enjoy the thrill of sliding on the snow, and they cater for adults and children alike. It's highly recommended to book in advance, and the price includes hire of equipment.
