Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to take part in Disability Snowsport UK’s National Skiathon 2012 – The Olympic & Paralympic Challenge, a unique event now in its fourth year. All your team has to do is ski or board your local ski slope together with skiing celebrities, the British Disabled Ski team and some of the UK’s top freestylers and help raise money for skiers with disabilities.


The event was really successful in 2011 with participants making a huge fundraising effort and bringing in a fantastic amount of just over £27,000.  This makes a massive difference to people living with disability who want to experience the thrill & excitement of the slopes just like everyone else. We’ve set our sights even higher this year with a fundraising target of £35,000 and we need your help to do this.


National Skiathon 2011 – 11th, 12th and 20th June 2011

Teams of 6 are invited to take on the challenge of skiing 2012 runs in 6 hours taking place at 6 indoor Ski Slopes across the country. So get involved at your nearest slope!   

The twist this year ……..…the more money you raise before end of May 2012 reduces the number of runs of you have to complete.  Furthermore for every person in your team that dresses up deducts an additional 5 runs off.  See table below for details:
