Ski school

Active Therapy ski school offers wide range courses which are suitable for any one. NO AGE or DISABILITY LIMITS! You can start learning to ski as young as 4/5 years old (I have skied even with 3 year-olds, depending on individual development) and you enjoy skiing even up to 80 years old (I know in person :-) ). We provide ski lesson and ski therapy for disabled people with any disability. During our tuitions we use the newest adaptive equipment which is individually selected to meet your needs. Our professional instructors and their massive teaching experience will make sure that your personal goals will be achieved much faster, avoiding any frustration and injuries. We are trying to use all the potential of our skiers to make them as independent as possible, to enjoy the freedom of skiing and the thrill of emotion that goes with it.
