TAS, a chapter of Disabled Sports USA, offered adaptive equipment to the public recently, so a couple friends and I checked it out. In addition to blind skiing, they offered the opportunity to experience how it feels to ski with one leg or no legs, and get after it on skis anyway.
A few runs later, I am making turns on the groomer, ripping down (well, more likely tracing little round turns), alternating between feeling vertigo and almost falling over. I did whatever Kurt said, when he said it. It was skiing still, but in a whole other world.
