The Kartski has been designed for people who want to ski on their own using their upper limbs but who do not have the necessary stability or strength to use a Uniski or Dualski.
The skier acts directly on his skis thanks to 2 handles.
He will first use the snow plow technique then the parallel skis. The seated skier can thus quickly steer and move on easy slopes. A valid skier ensures safety with a lifeline attached to the kartski.
Six seat sizes are available from the Samoëns handi-glisse association.
Kartski lessons are offered on a basis of 2 hours per day over several days (2 to 6 days or more).
Of course we adapt to the needs of each person according to their physical form, their desires.
Ski lessons are taught by qualified instructors who have received several days of training in teaching disabled people to ski.
Handiski equipment available:
Traditional bi-ski ()
GMS/FMS or Dual Barre bi-ski
Tandem ski ()
Large snowsliders ()
Like the Dualski, the Uniski is designed for people with lower limb disability. After learning the basics, you can experience the joys of skiing on your own and increase your proficiency.
Sliding within everyone's reach, the Tandemski allows severely handicapped people, possibly without any autonomy or of great fragility, to slide safely on ski slopes and thus enjoy the Grand-Massif ski area.
Disabled skiers will find the lessons they need in Samoëns, with qualified instructors and specially-adapted equipment.
Dualskis are intended for people with lower limb disability. They let you ski on your own and achieve the same results as the best able-bodied skiers.
