Sunday, March 7, 2021, 4-5:30pm EST
Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro, it can be overwhelming to choose the right sit-ski and seating adaptations for one’s ability and mobility.
In this virtual event, our experts will review various monoskis and seating adaptations presently available on the market. They will evaluate components, designs, buckets, and movement patterns and offer professional advice on how one can select the perfect ski and seating adaptation to match individual ability and mobility. The session will conclude with a Q&A. Attendees are strongly encouraged to come prepared with questions, and if possible, to send them ahead of time by including them on the registration form below.
This event is a must for adaptive monoskiers of all levels, instructors, and anyone interested in the world of adaptive skiing.
It is also Round #2 of the very successful “Virtual Après MonoSki Clinic” hosted this past January.
Round #3, “Movement Analysis: The Ultimate Recipe for Perfect Turns” will be on Sunday, March 21st, 4-5:30pm EST. We hope you will also join us for that, and we thank for spreading the word about these virtual chats. Register online as usual.

TESSIER designs, produces and commercializes the widest range of outdoor adaptive sports equipment with more than 25 years of innovation at the service of sitskiing and sport for everyone. Our products have been developed to give a maximum of pleasure, performance and independence to disabled people. When the equipment allows a sitskier to have the same independence and the same performances as his family or friends who ski with him, the idea of disability disappears and the goal is reached. Some skiers won’t be able to ski alone. For them the goal is to make the mountain access easier and to give them a maximum of pleasure and independence.
