However, this ski equipment helps a handicap person to go to ski resorts to enjoy the sport. With the invention of such ski equipment, a person with physical disabilities can enjoy the thrills of skiing and gliding in a snow covered slope.

There are different types of disabled ski equipment that are easily available in the ski resorts for the convenience of persons with physical disabilities. First of all, there is the mono ski equipment. In this ski, there is a moulded seat for the disabled person. This mono ski is mounted on a single ski and can be controlled through its two hand held outriggers. Strength and balance is required for managing this ski equipment. Similar to the mono-ski is the bi-ski equipment for disabled people. This ski is mounted on two skis. This bi-ski can be used with its fixed or hand held outriggers.
