Snozone offered free adaptive skiing lessons for disabled skiiers keen to get out on the slopes.

Shernette Lawrence visited Snozone Milton Keynes for her son’s 15th birthday with two of his friends all full-time wheelchair users with different disabilities and needs.

She said: “Snozone organised a great experience on the slopes for the boys including a face to face informal chat a week before hand to show us the sit-ski and how it would be used.

“The time on the slopes was spent making sure the boys were safe and comfortable.

“Joshua was a phenomenal instructor, he made the boys feel at ease throughout the whole enjoyable experience as he was at the helm of the sit-ski, he did 360’s and backward skiing down the slopes, to which the boys likened to being on a rollercoaster. The boys all got to ski down the slopes several times.

“I love the fact it is totally inclusive, the customer care that all staff members provide are second to none. Everyone is so helpful and at hand for any assistance, it’s definitely a must visit place especially for those with a disability that find it difficult to access most sports. Our boys can’t stop talking about it!”
