DSUK Local Groups exist to enable our skiers and boarders to practice what they have learned during lessons. They provide a safe, fun and social environment to ski and snowboard with other adaptive snowsport enthusiast.
The Castleford Local Group are a very friendly, active group. They have skiers with a variety of abilities and disabilities, including mobility, sight, hearing and learning difficulties. Some skiers ski independently and others with more assistance. They have a variety of equipment for both sit-skiers and stand up skiers and adapt the equipment to the needs of each individual skier.
They have a fantastic group of helpers, some of whom are adaptive instructors. However, they always welcome new helpers, whatever their skiing ability.
The group don’t have beginners in their sessions as beginners are expected to have their initial lesson from an adaptive snowsport school. They have a good relationship with Castleford Adaptive Ski Instructors and the DSUK Manchester Adaptive Snowsport School.
