Après MonoSki Clinic Resources
Thank you to all of you who attended the virtual clinics, we hope that you enjoyed the presentations and have gathered some useful information. Little did we know that our Annual Monoski Clinic would evolve to a three part series this year, and attract over 175 monoskiers, instructors, and volunteers from various adaptive organizations from all over the world. We look forward to continuing the virtual clinics as soon as the Fall of 2021.
On this page, you will find various resources and links to topics discussed during the virtual sessions, and well as various links that you might find helpful. If you would like to see other links added, please send them to Pascale Savard.
**Please take 2 minutes and help us get better, and TAKE THIS SHORT SURVEY here.
For the first “Après Monoski Clinic and Chat“, we missed the very first part of the session (oops!) including the introductions (so sorry), but the rest of the recording of the event is here. We are also sharing with you the Power Point presentation in case you want to review some details.
For the recording of the Zoom meeting for the A Perfect Monoski for Every Body clinic click here. You can also view the High Fives Foundation Video (with sound on this time!) sorry about the glitch. Feel free to reach out to Landon McGauley for information about the foundation.

Thanks to our Expert Guest Speakers:
Geoff Krill, Director of Eastern Adaptive Sports and PSIA–AASI Adaptive Team Coach. Geoff has been leading and coaching at this event for 9 years. His expertise, knowledge and experience continue to help participants bring their game to the next level.
Chris Young, US Coast Guard (Ret.), World Cup and Paralympic Champion, X Games Champion, and volunteer at the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers. Chris’s involvement with product development for the U.S. Ski Team makes him a favorite with equipment geeks – and he can also carve a very nice turn!
Greg Durso, Program Director, Kelly Brush Foundation. A fellow KBF grant recipient and big supporter, Greg is now focusing his efforts on helping others in the SCI community get the same opportunities and chances he’s had. As a wheelchair athlete Greg loves the outdoors: skiing, mountain biking, boating and participating in triathlons.
MiKayla Briere, Alpine Coordinator at Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country at Cannon Mountain in New Hampshire. MiKayla has been monoskiing for 13 years. She is an adaptive instructor since 2007, first joining ASPNC as a volunteer in 2015 and transitioning to the Alpine Program Manager in the Fall of 2019. She’s participated in the Stowe MonoSki Clinic for a few years, literally making heads spin as she rips her favorite turns, railed carves on a short SL ski on some of the most challenging terrain on the mountain. MiKayla is also an accomplished nordic sit-skier, hand cyclist, and sit-waterskier to name a few.
Liam Wagner, Kelly Brush Foundation Ambassador with affiliations to the National Ability Center and Bergers Ski & Snowboard Shop. Liam is new to the world of adaptive skiing but has embraced his new passion with a vengeance. Keep your eyes on this young athlete; he will no doubt make his mark on the world of competition before you know it.
Sincere thanks to all of our valued partners for contributing time, talent, and expertise to make this event possible. Check out the event and past posts on Facebook.
