Events

North Wales

Each year in North Wales we have a Christmas lunch and party, a summer BBQ, and offer residential skiing weekends at Llangranog.

The Summer BBQ is held at local venues with approximately 70 members and their families attending.


South Wales

A residential weekend is organised each year by Disability Wales in the Welsh League of Youths headquarters in Llangranog. This is a most spectacular location on the magnificent Pembrokeshire coastline overlooking Cardigan Bay.

As well as the ski slope, other activities are available to us such as horse riding and go cart racing. There are wonderful coastal walks for the adventurous over sea cliffs.


North Wales

We try to offer the opportunity of a holiday on snow each year. We have previously been to Pamporovo, Bulgaria. This has been a very successful event over recent years, with good quality accommodation.

We have been well supported by Steve’s Ski School www.skischoolsteve.com along with various hotel groups within the resort.


South Wales

Part of the South Wales section take a group of very special children Called Ice Cool Kids on holiday to various locations each year. Ice Cool Kids is a local charity raising money to teach groups of local special needs children skiing, both in this country and abroad. These children have a variety of conditions some of which are life limiting. Our aim is to allow these very special children the opportunity to experience an activity from which they would normally be excluded. Participating in this therapeutic activity not only allows them to fulfil a dream but also brings a huge sense of fun, enjoyment and achievement. Skiing helps promote co-ordination, balance, movement control and general health and well being. It enables the children to develop their functional abilities and to reach their full potential, so improving their independence and quality of life. All of these children have special needs and sadly there is no cure for many of the conditions they have, but all will benefit from this chance to develop themselves, it will give them the opportunity to reach for their dreams.

The other current section in South Wales is Ski4all, offering adults with a physical, neurological or visual deficit, the opportunity to ski. www.ski4allwales.cymru
