Bumpability

The equipment disabled skiers use keeps getting better and so do the athletes. The suspension on the monoski in the clip below is unbelievable, as is the skier’s line through a lengthy Sugarbush mogul field. Imagine muscling your way through the bumps using mostly obliques and abdominals.

Killington-based Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports has a long list of programs and events for people with all types of abilities. Skiing is the non-profit’s bread and butter, but it also offers disabled athletes opportunities in kayaking, sailing, ice skating, water skiing, horseback riding and other sports.


Then there’s the famous Murderball documentary on disabled rugby. Something tells me this skier has the chutzpah to take on Mark Zupan.
