Our Mission

The London Track 3 Ski School, a non-profit association, is a leader in providing downhill ski programs for children and adults with developmental, physical, visual and hearing challenges. Students are provided with an exhilarating physical and social activity that otherwise would be unavailable.

The philosophy of the Association is that people with challenges should be given the chance to experience the joy of skiing while having equal access to high quality instruction and appropriate equipment in order to maximize skill development.

London Track 3 is operated entirely by volunteers and has an ongoing requirement for new funding. Funding is required for annual operating cost, capital expenditures and for the upgrade and replacement of existing equipment. Our mission is to provide a safe, enjoyable and rewarding downhill skiing experience for challenged individuals.
