What is your connection to the snow?

Snowsports in general and Adaptive snowsports in-particular has shown me that purposeful recreational outdoor activity is not only essential to a healthy balanced and active lifestyle, but also has physical, social and physiological benefits that can make real and meaningful changes to people lives. 

What was your best snow experience?

Every time I get to share the moments when one of my students overcomes enormous changelings, find themselves in a state of ‘flow’ and being present in the joy of skiing.
