Adaptive Ski Instructor Training with Outdoors for All

I spent today at Snoqualmie Pass building my skills as an adaptive ski instructor. Adaptive skiing is helping people ski in a way that adapts to any disabilities they face.

Snoqualmie Pass has had a dry year so far so it was really great that they opened up the beginner chair at Summit West for us to work on some skills with the sit skis.

We had a great day spending time tethering sit-skis and taking turns skiing them; it's a humbling experience to tie into one of the sit skis and have to learn how to ski again with a different set of skills!

Outdoors for All is a great organization with an amazing community of volunteers. I was part of a cool video King 5 produced last year covering some perspectives on why adaptive recreation is important:
