One specialist disability skiing instructor is Lizzy Benwell.

She’s an English and Dutch speaker with seven years of experience on the mountains and more than 16 in outdoor sports.

“I believe that everyone should be able to experience skiing all over the mountain,” said Lizzy Benwell.

“I specialise in adaptive skiing so, no matter what someone’s disability is, they can always enjoy that opportunity to explore the mountains.

“I have access to specialised equipment, such as sit skis and outriggers to make this dream possible and look forward to helping disability skiers enjoy the magic of the mountains in 2022.”

“We’re very proud to be able to offer opportunities across disability disciplines at Maison Sport from today and it is an area we will continue to invest in and grow in the future.”
