Surround yourself with snowy mountains and disconnect from the routine. In this week's post we recommend some resorts where you can practice adaptive skiing in different countries around the world.

Park City (Utah, United States)

Park City is home to one of the largest ski resorts in the country. Thanks to an agreement with the National Ability Center, this adapted sport is offered for people with disabilities.
The instructors can teach you different skiing and snowboarding techniques. At all times they adjust to your needs and abilities. They also provide the appropriate equipment at the beginning of each lesson.
Those who already have experience have the option to rent the equipment and use it on their own. Bi-ski, mono-ski, ski kart, ski bike and snow slide are available. More information can be found on the National Ability Center and Park City Mountain websites.

La Plagne (La Plagne-Tarentaise, France)

The large resort of La Plagne welcomes many skiers with disabilities every year. In the resort you can find parking spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility, adapted accommodations and accessible restaurants.
Companies such as Oxygene also offer adaptive and stand-up skiing lessons. The experience includes the appropriate equipment.

The Sierra Nevada Ski Resort is the one that enjoys the most days of sunshine per year. In fact, it is the southernmost in Europe.
