About DSUK

DSUK has over forty years’ experience of teaching snowsports at our adaptive snowsport schools throughout the UK and during the winter season, in the mountains at home and abroad. We believe that teaching disabled people to master the slopes can transform the way they experience their disability.

We are particularly interested to hear from applicants who have experience of living with a disability, and/or managing a long-term condition, and/or their friends and family. We would also particularly welcome interest from applicants with a passion for snowsport.
