Snow Skiing with USARC

Andrew Skinner March 30, 2021 News, Noteworthy, SCI, Videos

Triumph took 25 participants with mobility impairments in January and February to experience adaptive snow skiing with United States Adaptive Recreation Center at Big Bear Mountain Ski Resort.

Highlights include bringing a dozen first time participants to shred the slopes, including three children under the age of nine, and Larry Dunn, a high-level quadriplegic with limited upper body function who was able to ski the half pipe.

“My first time sit-skiing was thrilling, I didn’t think I would ever ski again. A big thank you to Triumph for giving me this opportunity. What a great day!” said Larry Dunn, C-4 quadriplegic.

“We are grateful to the wonderful staff and volunteers at United States Adaptive Recreation Center,” said Doug Harker, Triumph Foundation, “they have an amazing program and we love partnering with them every year.”
