How does a Lugicap Snow work?
A Lugicap Snow is designed to accommodate all models of manual wheelchairs with 3 or 4 wheels.
This means the disabled person doesn't have to transfer from one chair to another. They stay warm and comfortable in their accustomed armchair.
The wheelchair is mounted on the Lugicap Snow. It is equipped with skis from Rossignol or Salomon, whose quality and reputation are well established.
The wheelchair is then securely attached to the Lugicap Snow. The 2 pieces of equipment become perfectly interdependent.
You're now ready for a great ride in the snow!
How do you propel the Lugicap Snow?
One or more guides accompany you on each outing. They are responsible for propelling or towing the Sled.
Activities associated with Lugicap equipment always involve a minimum of 2 people: a disabled person in a wheelchair and an accompanying adult.
How to get the most out of your snow tour
People with disabilities need to be well secured in their seats. To avoid slipping in the seat with the movements, the speed... In the euphoria, take care not to leave too quickly if you are badly installed.
Similarly, if the person slips in the chair, don't hesitate to tell us so that we can adjust the position for maximum comfort and gliding pleasure.
Before departure, your companion will make sure that the disabled person is safely seated.
For this, we recommend the use of a support harness, which we also offer as an option.

A few points will further enhance your experience and enjoyment. Before you leave :
- Scan the route you wish to take
