Life changing activity & adventure ski holidays for disadvantaged sick and disabled children

Katie's Ski Tracks is a registered UK charity that changes young lives by taking children from disadvantaged backgrounds be it through life threatening or life limiting medical conditions, disability or extreme social problems on the unthinkable, a Specialised and Without Parents, Adaptive Adventure Skiing Holiday of a Lifetime to Sudtirol Italy

These youngsters are so often excluded from school and family holidays and for some it will unfortunately be the first and last holiday they will ever take.

Katie's Ski Tracks was renamed after the late Katie Noctor who helped co-found the charity in 1990. Katie lost her own personal fight to illness when she died of skin cancer in 1993 aged just 30

Katie’s Ski Tracks was born from an idea (a dream) which occurred to Martin Newman whilst working with sick and disabled children in Lourdes South West France in 1987-8. During his free time he would always venture up into the nearby Pyrenees Mountains and partake in his passion for skiing. It was here that he began to realise how very fortunate he was to be so fit and healthy and to be able to enjoy the sheer beauty and the therapeutic values that the mountains could offer him as here any problems or worries always seemed to vanish into insignificance.

Charity No: 1130907
