Sweden reflections

on reflection, Sweden was incredible. I am thankful for the work of all the Backup Trust team who worked very hard to enable the disabled participants. The ski school instructors were professionals who knew exactly what they were doing and where tactful about how to encourage.

I learnt a lot about differences in needs and there were some very interesting interactions between members of the group. I met some great people with whom I enjoyed learning and spending time.

the experience definitely opens new doors for future skiing opportunities, although hard work it is definitely possible with willing hands.although watching other people snowboard is painful, it’s still exhilarating to be speeding down the slopes.
