Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK) is the UK’s leading snowsport charity. We have been teaching disabled people to ski and snowboard for over forty years and although like all charities we anticipate a challenging year ahead, we also have exciting plans.

At DSUK, we believe that teaching disabled people to master the slopes can transform the way they experience their disability. For our customers, it’s about enjoying achievement and independence. From picking their line to controlling their speed, they can experience something that’s often missing from their everyday lives – freedom.
