Entry is £66 per team with the requirement to raise a minimum of £666. The challenge is to ski 666 runs in 6 hours at one of 6 UK indoor ski slopes including the Chill Factor in Manchester; Tamworth Snowdome in Staffordshire;
There's no need to be a top-flight skier or boarder - quizzes and games give everyone the chance to win extra runs for their team. Each participant also receives a goodies bag and a T-shirt as a memento of a great day out raising money to help bring joy and excitement to many people living with disabilities throughout the UK.

Celebrity endorsement for the DSUK Skiathon 2010:
If you can't take part yourself, please spread the word and tell your friends.
Among those taking part this year are The Combined Services Disabled Ski Team made up of soldiers who have lost limbs or been seriously injured during service in Iraq and Afghanistan and The British Disabled Ski Team (BDST) whose spokesperson Sean Rose (World Cup Gold medalist, Winter Paralympian and British Disabled Ski Team number one) said: DSUK provides snowsports experiences to people with all disabilities. It is life changing for some, a feeling of independence for others and a thrilling adventure for everyone. DSUK also scouts for talented new members to join the national team, who one day could fly down a race course representing their country. For me it does not get much better than that.'
