Mobility Clinic on the Snow

The Mobility Clinic, hosted by Össur, is a 3-day event designed to offer amputees a unique opportunity. Participants will have the chance to explore the world of snow sports under the guidance of experienced experts, including a prominent Össur Ambassador and Paralympian. This inclusive event welcomes amputees of all ages and skill levels to express their interest. 

Selected participants will engage in learning and practicing fundamental snow sport skills such as skiing, snowboarding, or sit skiing. To ensure a safe and comfortable experience, Össur has partnered with the skilled team at DWA, known for their expertise in guiding participants through these activities. 

We emphasize inclusivity and support throughout the event, making it accessible even to those with no prior experience in snow sports. Interested amputees are encouraged to apply once the application form becomes available, although please be aware that due to limited spots, each application will undergo eligibility review. While we strive to accommodate as many participants as possible, we cannot guarantee a spot for every applicant.
