A Perfect MonoSki for Every Body
Explore How to Successfully Match Body with Machine
Sunday, March 7, 2021, 4-6pm 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.
Details for Round #3, “Movement Analysis: The Ultimate Recipe for Perfect Turns” scheduled for Sunday, March 21st, 4-6pm EST will soon follow. Save the date, and we thank for spreading the word about these virtual chats.
