We ski at at Sky Tavern Jr Ski Resort. It is just below Mt Rose Ski resort outside of Reno. They have a web site that tells the story. It is a Non profit program that teach kids to ski or board with the help of all volunteers. My part is is with the Adaptive program. 12 years ago got a call while working with Special Olympics that they needed ski instructors to start Adaptive program. I am a PSIA level 1 Certified Adaptive Ski Instructor. I don't get paid. The student in the pic's ( Conner )has Cerebal Palsy from birth. He has mild/severe muscle spasms. He can talk but uses a walker and wheel chair. Mental is normal, his diabily is all physical due to muscle contorl spasms. I strap him into the sit down ski (bi-ski)and he leans from side to side edge the skis into a turn. You can see how the skis articulate up and down to catch an edge in the pics. I help with speed control a balance as needed. He loves skiing powder and jumping. Last sunday he got all excited that he was hitting small moguls and turning in the air and landing without crashing. Heis a hotdog.
We go to MT Rose all the time and went to Mammoth last year. Cooner wants to one day compete in Disabled Olympics and learn to Snowboard.

That is just awesome! He sure looks like he's having a blast, and what fun it must be. I doubt we'll see a better obsession than that! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures!

I will have to find some of our crash videos and post them. But safety is always first. I always bring em back alive.
Had awsome day today skiing Conner. We caught about 5 feet of air today. I think i'm to old for this shit :lol: Nothing like trying to keep up with a 16 year old boy high on hormones and adreneline.
