The Swiss Ski School Saas-Fee offers ski courses for disabled people. Our experienced and certified ski instructor Jolanda teaches and accompanies people with different mental and physical disabilities. Read about her experience below.

What is it?

… first of all exciting and hearty and enriching!
… In other words: Snow sports with a disability...? Yes, of course!

It is my aim to introduce this very interesting area to a broad audience - and also to support affected people to overcome any hurdle for starting their snow sports adventure.
2005 was the first time for me to teach a blind guest; shortly after, I also had a trisomy 21 pupil in Saas-Fee for the first time. Since then I have been fascinated about the great successes my students have made and I am grateful that I can share these moments with them!

Here, dear guests, I would like to tell some stories about my experience with ski lessons for disabled people. For me, many of them are much more than "just" my students - a special connection develops, which I highly appreciate and I do everything to preserve these relationships. I have great respect for everything they did and still do every day, for what they have taught, for their motivation, dedication and the joy they have in reaching new goals!

With the warmest regards JOLANDA
