Default Looking for disabled skiing (sit skiing) in Europe - particularlyBulgaria if possible

Hi guys, I'm looking for places that offer sit-skiing in Europe,
particularly Bulgaria. Can anyone help?

We're looking to go over new years. We need to have a sit ski
instructor, sit skis and availability for 3 days of tuition between
the 27th Dec 2008 and 3rd 2009. The 3 days don't have to be on
consecutive days.

Any help or any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Paul

France may be a good choice for you. You will find a list of resorts
where the ESF (the main ski school in France) offer this.
http://www.esf.net/en/discipline/handiski.php (see drop down of
resorts on right hand side - look for resorts in Savoie/Haute Savoie
and Isere in priority - other areas may not be as snowsure) then go
the the relevant resort's website

Never go to france. Never go to france. The people are assholes and
they hate anybody not french. Never go to france. Douse yourself
with gasoline and light a match before going to france.

I can't comment on Bulgaria, but I would suggest you consider French ski
villages offering the 'HandiSki' system, which seems to provide everything
you're looking for.
http://www.tourisme-hautes-pyrenees....9-handiski.php is a good
overview, in English.

The resorts mentioned are friendly, offer good value and most have easy
transfers from budget flights and TGV high-speed rail services.

Good luck in your search, and enjoy your skiing!

Um...so that would be a "no" vote for France?

Never x-post to RSA, unless you want this sort of mindless abuse.

Damn right. RSA has been dominated by a few nutters for years, to the
extent that several years ago RSAM (moderated) was created. This has
limited traffic.

We have just produced a page about skiing with a disability on
http://www.mountainpassions.com/wint...bility_ski.htm.
It has lots of useful tips for beginners and links to organisations and
equipment suppliers / ski schools. There is information about skiing in
other European countries and the USA.
