Crystal Adaptive – holidays for independent, disabled skiers

Booking a holiday with us is easy – and that goes for everyone. We know that all you want to do is just hit the slopes and have fun with your family and friends, so that’s why, with Crystal Adaptive, we make it simple. We offer knowledgeable recommendations and a bit of extra support, so you can spend your holiday enjoying yourself.

Only you know what your exact requirements are, so on this page we’ve tried to provide as much information as we can so you can start planning where you’d like to go skiing. Take a look on the accommodation pages for more information about the specific adaptations made to hotels and rooms, as well as what types of disabilities the ski schools can teach.

When you’re ready to book, the Crystal Adaptive team will be on hand to provide you with any extra information you need, and to request rooms, plus any equipment and lessons.

Flights, transfers and accommodation are included as standard with all of our holidays. We’ll even arrange special assistance at the airport and adaptive transfers if needed.

All adaptive holidays need to be booked over the phone or via email with someone from our Crystal Adaptive team. You can contact them on 0208 939 0463 or at

How we select our hotels

We have a minimum requirement of adaptations in order to call an accommodation ‘wheelchair accessible’. However, we know from what our customers have told us over the years that not all disabilities require all adaptations to be made. Therefore, the accommodations which don’t have the minimum number are grouped in our ‘partially adapted’ programme.

If you don’t require any adaptations to your accommodation, but do require adaptive ski school, take a look at the Adaptive Ski School section below.

Everything’s taken care of

  • Adaptive ski schools in all of our adaptive resorts
  • Special assistance at the airport in the UK and overseas
  • Sit-ski carriage for £40 when flying with TUI
  • Easy access to the resort centre

We really do appreciate your comments and suggestions, so if you think we could do anything better in regards to our adaptive programme, please let us know.
