Welcome to the Home of the Combined Services Disabled Ski Team (CSDST) !
CSDST is a charitable organisation which helps to rehabilitate those serving and retired service personnel who have been injured during their military service, through the medium of Adaptive (Alpine) Skiing.
Please look around this site to read about the team and its athletes, hear about their achievements and aspirations, and, if you wish, make a contribution towards their goals. Please feel free to contact the staff as indicated; we would be delighted to provide any further information that you need. All of the athletes are exceptional young men and women and, having given so much in the service of their country, anything that you can do to help them achieve their aspirations will be exceptionally well received.
Thank you for visiting CSDST!
Please see our News page for updates on the Ride of Thrones. This wonderful fundraising event finishes at the Tower of London on 9th September, and the following day will see the start of the Invictus Games, to be held at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Although there is no skiing at the games, many injured servicemen who have become part of the CSDST family will be taking part. Craig Gadd helped unveil the medals for the games as you can see here.
The wonderful people at Selex ES are organising a charity bike ride in September to raise funds for CSDST. The ride will take the cyclists from Edinburgh Castle to the Tower of London, and for more information on the Ride of Thrones please click here
