To find out more about the tasks Helpers are involved in at our sessions please click here. We are always keen to have new volunteers - skiers and non skiers, so please contact us to find out more.  In addition, during Spring 2018 we will be running short training sessions on operating the ski lifts, please let us know if you would like to attend.

Safeguarding Course

A big thank you to Hampshire Social Services for running two Safeguarding courses (formerly Child Protection) for us at Alpine Snowsports on 26th September and 3rd October 2016.

ASD/SSCD Grade 3 Guide Disability Awareness Course

After the success we had in 2015, we managed to book the SSCD training team to deliver their Disability Awareness Grade 3 Guide Course at Aldershot again in August 2016. 

The course enables participants to gain a better understanding of the equipment and our adaptive techniques, including sit skis, and equipment such as training bars, tethering, delivering parts of a lesson using non verbal communication (a hearing impaired session) and skiing with specially adapted goggles to experience partial sight before being set off to ski blindfold down the slope with instructions being given by radio.

Training Subsidies for Volunteers

The Club has funds available to support volunteers with any training requirements that benefit members.  To find out more please contact the Chair or Treasurer for more information.
