    Alpine skiing is one of the most common and popular winter sports. It is accessible to the general crowd of people, who acquire adequate knowledge of physical ability and ski equipment. It also can be a great form of socializing, connecting with others, spend quality leisure time and much more. The purpose of the thesis is to present how the integration of adapted sports activities - alpine skiing impact on life satisfaction, self-esteem, sports identity and social integration of persons with physical disability against individuals who were not included or are not engaged regularly with adapted physical activity. The study, which covered Slovenian recreational adaptive alpine skiers and control group, we found that some aspects of subjective well being, self-esteem and sports identity are statistically significant between the research and the control group . All differences militate in favor of persons who are active in sports. They have better self-esteem, they are more satisfied with life and have a significantly higher sports identity. They spend their free time in the company of family or friends and take advantage of quality leisure time. In addition to the survey questionnaire, we collected demographic data and stratification characteristics, we used Diener scale of subjective life satisfaction, Tennessee scale for identifying self-esteem and a questionnaire to determine the identity of the sport.
