Adaptive Skiers

It was a great day today to be on the slopes. Sunshine, blue sky and a new fall of snow. It also was a pleasure to see the adaptive skiers on their mono ski seats and outrigger ski poles. Hats off to these guys and gals navigating the slopes with a great deal of skill. I am sure that this has to be a thrill for those who are otherwise mobility impaired. Also special recognition and thanks to those folks who volunteer to assist. All the best to all of you folks in this program. A couple of my colleagues have special needs offspring and I know that skiing in the adaptive program has been a great gift to their families.

Geezer skiers - no complaints about your aches and pains!!
