Sport4All develops an educated understanding and increased excitement about the sport of Para-alpine skiing, Para-nordic skiing and Para-snowboard. All Sport4All participants depart the event as new ambassadors for Paralympic sport.
Sport4All engages visitors at alpine skiing, nordic and snowboard venues hosting International Para-snowsport competitions, to visit a Ski4All, Slide4All or Ride4All festival site. These festival sites are created to encourage the public to experience what the elite Para-athletes are using as adaptive equipment and to gain an increased appreciation of what Para-snowsport is all about. Everyone can try a sit-ski, experience visual impairment on skis, and try outriggers as a standing disability.
All those who take part in a Sport4All experience will also meet the elite Para-athletes who are competing and through Sport4All connectivity, newcomers and fans of Para-snowsport gain an increased awareness of what an elite Para-athlete is accomplishing. Sport4All develops an educated understanding and increased excitement about the sport of Para-alpine skiing, Para-nordic skiing and Para-snowboard, with Sport4All participants departing event as new ambassadors for Paralympic sport.
The goal of Ski4All is to provide a “play” based environment at the base of the finish area that develops experience, awareness and knowledge of Para-snowsport Competitions. Children, youth and parents are introduced to an inclusive “Ski4All” area that allows them to try the equipment that the competitors are using. This includes sit-skis, out-riggers, skis, helmets, goggles, etc. They have the opportunity to participate in a “mini-terrain play area” so they can experience what the competitor experiences.
"We are here to promote awareness and education about Para-Alpine Skiing."
