From 16/12/2023 to 18/04/2024, daily.
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.
Tandemski 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.
The GME is only accessible with a manual wheelchair, the staff is used to the chairs, they will help you to get in and out of the cabin.
In order to get the most out of your ski lesson, we advise you to dress warmly.
A protective cover (duvet type) will be lent to you for the tandemski.
If you are in an electric wheelchair and do not have a manual chair, you will have to reach Samoens 1600 by road (11km) and park at the TGD car park (just after the tunnel).
A space is reserved on the snow front. Your instructor will pick you up here.
The best period is outside the Christmas and February school holidays.
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.
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.
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.
