Natalie is a disabled skier and has been involved with the club since 2012. Growing up, Natalie watched skiers on the Alpine Ski Slope with her grandparents. She always thought skiing was something beyond her, until she had her first skiing session with Solent Ski Club and hasn’t looked back. Natalie would encourage anyone with a disability thinking of trying skiing to give it a go with Solent Ski Club

Helen is a trustee of Solent ski club who first became a member when she was trying to find a sport that her daughter could try. Helen’s daughter has mild cerebral palsy and the club has supported her from needing a lot of input with skiing to becoming an independent skier. The sense of family is a main positive of becoming a member and volunteering gives a great sense of well-being. Helen admits that she isn’t the greatest of skiers (black runs are a no!) but the Solent Ski Club is so welcoming it really doesn’t matter.
