Alpine Skiing and Riding
Skiing is skiing!
Adaptive skiing uses specialized equipment and/or training to allow people with disabilities to experience the benefits of skiing. Skiing and snowboarding provide a sense of freedom that is difficult to duplicate in other sports. Skiing is a fantastic sport for people with physical disabilities or visual impairments in that it helps to develop balance, fitness, confidence, motivation, and social skills. Simply put – Skiing is Skiing!
