teleflex Intern. Event
This weekend, from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th February, the first edition of the Teleflex International Event will be held in Folgaria (Alpe Cimbra). There will be 10 young people with neuromotor disabilities, at their first approach with monoski, from Great Britain, Holland, France, Belgium, Austria and Germany.
"In our 16 years of teaching seated skiing - says the technical manager of the three days of lessons, Nicola Busata - we have eliminated limits and barriers by allowing more than 1000 young and old with any physical disability to ski independently and safely. Together with the teaching we have also been promoting the Italian Spinal Units for some time now, we collaborate with the managers of the lifts and hotel facilities in terms of accessibility and with the State Police regarding safety and assistance on the slopes. . The responsibility of this international event entrusted to us by Teleflex is for all the Freerider staff a source of pride and at the same time an incentive to grow to offer a better and more specific service, gratified by seeing more and more people with disabilities on the plants and on the slopes from Trentino to Abruzzo, in autonomy and safety, to compete but above all to have fun ". "The events taken care of by Freerider Sport Events that for ten years now have been taking place at the slopes of our station - said Daniela Vecchiato, director of the company for tourism Folgaria Lavarone Lusérn - have contributed greatly to increase the sensitivity of the location towards the '' adoption of a winter development project "for all" today among the most complete in Italy, with the involvement not only of the Skiarea, but also of ski schools, accommodation facilities and in general of the tourist offer. Every year the appointment with Freerider is renewed, involving more and more participants. The novelty of an international event is the natural development of what has been sown over the years in terms of accessibility and teaching. Folgaria and the Alpe Cimbra are always happy to welcome the Freerider Sport Events Ski Tour and the great friend Gianni Garbin, former director of the Costa 2000 Ski School of Folgaria, member of the technical staff of Freerider Sport Events ".
