Our friends at Totalskidskolan ran Back Up’s first ski course in 1997. Since then, they have run a further 45 courses, supporting over 250 participants with high level spinal cod injury, including a number of permanently ventilated participants.
They have helped us run five youth ski courses and an additional 16 ski kart taster days in Bracknell, where, each year, at least two of their instructors would come over to give people the opportunity to try ski karting.


“Thank you Back Up so far the best week of my life since I broke my neck.”

The ski school, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2017, is full of enthusiasm, passion and knowledge. They work with a range of people with different disabilities and go above and beyond to make this ski courses happen.

Some years ago, they were happy to introduce a night ski on the adult ski course, enabling participants to see the Northern Lights and experience a different dimension to skiing.

Last but not least, they provide one-on-one instruction to all participants, helping some to obtain a ski licence.

We can’t thank them enough for their support and kindness.
