Paranordic sledge

Winter stroll in the woods !

It is possible to do a cross-country skiing outing even if you are in a wheelchair! The skiers are seated in the sledge, under which is attached a pair of skis. The skis are almost identical as regular skis, but shorter and are fixed to the sledge by cross-country ski fasteners.

The skiers simply move forward by using two poles, and the trick is done !

The Skieurs de l’Ile and the Notre-Dame-de-Fatima Centre, in collaboration with the municipalities of Pincourt, Notre-Dame-de-L`Ile and Ile-Perrot, are proud to announce that an adapted cross-country ski sledge (Paranordic sledge) will be available to schools participating in the Skieurs de l’Ile educational project and is available at the Notre-Dame-de-Fatima Centre this Winter.

This project has been possible due to the financial support of Fonds en développement social and the Pincourt, Notre-Dame-de-L’Ile Perrot and Ile Perrot activities committee.

Please note that this equipment will be available, free of charge, to affected residents in these 3 municipalities who have a physical handicap.

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Spina bifida
  • Amputation
  • Cerebral trauma
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Limited vision
  • Or other…

Thank you to everyone who has made this project possible.
