WHAT WE OFFER

Mono Ski
Developed for people with spina bifida, multiple lower body amputations, or vertebrae injuries, mono-skiing involves sitting in a specially designed bucket-chair atop a single, central ski. Mono-skiing requires extremely well-developed upper body strength and control, as steering is handled entirely by turning the upper body and using the arms with specially shortened ski poles.

Bi-Ski
Similar to the mono-ski, bi-skiing involves a seat set atop two skis instead of one. Bi-skiing is for people who have intact lower legs but poor control of their extremities. This can include people with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Again, it demands significant upper body strength and control to maneuver the rig.

3 Track and 4 Track Skis
3-track and 4-track skiers have the ability to stand, and are capable of skiing on regular skis. Instead of ski poles, students use outriggers for balance. Outriggers are handheld crutches with skis at the end.
Candidates for three-track skiing might include people with leg amputations, post-polio or trauma that affects primarily one leg.
Candidates for four-track skiing might include people with cerebral palsy, polio survivors, spina bifida, arthrogryposis, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, congenital disabilities or traumatic injury.

Visually Impaired
Skiers with visual impairments ski with a volunteer guide and brightly colored bibs for identification.

Lessons available for cognitive disabilities as well.  Please contact us for more information.
