Adaptive Snow Skiing and Boarding Education Day 2015
The day at the mountain consisted of Q & A time, observations, lessons with instructors, adaptive equipment experience and a Mt. Spokane adaptive skiing program orientation with the purpose to increase awareness and leisure options for the future.
Recap: It was another perfect day on Mt. Spokane for the Skiday! We had six participants for the day with one current patient present for educational purposes. The ages ranged from 7-54 and with varied abilities. Out of the six participants, four signed up for the three week additional sessions with the Parks and Recreation program. A big thank you to the collaboration between Spokane Parks & Recreation and St. Luke's for getting these individuals active in winter sports. Another special thanks to all of the amazing volunteers that made this possible.
