SNOW SKIING December 19th, 2011

Snow skiing can be an exciting and difficult adapted sport for people of all ages and disabilities. Once a year RHI provides the opportunity for individuals to experience the challenging sport of snow skiing. People with visual impairments can use many different types of skis ranging from 2-track, 3-track and 4-track skis which increase the level of participation. Sit-skis, which are also used in waterskiing, are used by individuals with spinal cord injuries, while individuals with spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, brain injury and/or limp amputation use mono-skis and bi-skis. There are many styles of poles that can be used and are determined by the ski being utilized, such as short picks, standard, twelve-inch, and kayak poles.
