What we do

Set up in October 2014, the Snow Sports Foundation (SSF) generates funds to promote and deliver snow sports opportunities, either individually or in groups from schools, colleges or social groups to a range of people with additional needs, mental health challenges, disabilities, financial hardship and social or exceptional circumstances.


Our work not only helps these individuals to develop their skiing and snowboarding skills, but also allows their impressive natural abilities to be expressed, to give them a sense of achievement and pride.

Through the development of their personal life skills, our funding helps to:

  • Enhance their social, emotional and communication skills
  • Improve fitness, balance, and concentration, ultimately leading to greater self-confidence
  • Reduce social isolation, anxiety, and stress through positive mental health
  • Have a positive impact on the family unit and their social environment


This engagement takes place on the slopes of the premier indoor snow centre in Hemel Hempstead and enhances their social, emotional and communication skills, whilst improving fitness, balance, concentration and ultimately, self-confidence.

Learning to ski or snowboard will not only benefit people in the development of their own life skills, it will ultimately enhance their family, school and social environments.

All of this is not possible without your help.

If you’re a Trust or Foundation looking to support a charity that helps people with all forms of disability change their lives through snow sports, we would love to have a chat with you. You can get in touch here.
