Travelling with a disability or additional needs
How to get to the ski resorts
Driving, flying, taking the train or for those living in the UK then a combination of ferry or channel tunnel are many of the options available to anyone with a disability or special need who is wanting to travel to the mountains in Austria, France, Italy, Switzerland and the other mountainous regions of Europe.
Skiing in the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand or South America is probably for most people a fly-only option unless you are actually living there.
How you get to the ski resort is a decision best made on your own specific requirements but we are delighted to offer some guidance with might help you. We have also included information we have on transfers from airport/station to the ski resort.
For many families travelling with a disabled child, especially for the first ski holiday, can be a daunting experience and so finding the right way to get there is really important. It will, of course, depend on where you live but in some cases taking the train or driving may well be a good option. There are many wheelchair accessible hotels/motels/bed and breakfast accommodation close to the main auto-routes in France and Europe and can ensure a more reasonable arrival time in the ski resort!
Ski 2 Freedom has a number of useful contacts for which travel, and in many cases, this is specific to people with a disability who are going on holiday, is their field of expertise.
Given the number of different ways of travel we have divded this section into:
- Channel Tunnel
- Transfer to Ski Resort
