Dialing In Your Monoski Virtual Clinic
Thursday, December 2, 2021, 6:00-7:30pm EST
You’re in great shape, and ready to hit the mountain on your monoski. Now, is your gear as ready as you are? Let us help you make sure that everything is dialed in properly BEFORE you drag yourself to the slopes.
Join us from the comfort of your home for this free virtual clinic as our experts get a little geeky and help you identify the nuts and bolts of what needs your attention before you hit the slopes. Some of the topics covered will include conducting an inventory of your gear and a pre-flight check of all of the components, dialing in your bindings, going over, and perhaps making small adjustments to your set-up.
We hope that the content of this clinic will be attendee-driven, so please send us your questions on the registration form so they can be incorporated in the discussion. The one-hour clinic will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A and online conversation with all attendees.
This clinic is a must for monoskiers of all level and ability, as well as for instructors and program volunteers eager to gain knowledge, and learn from each other and industry experts.
We look forward to seeing you at the clinic. Follow us and the discussion for this event on Facebook. If you cannot attend, please sign up, and we will send you the link to the recording. Thanks for sharing with fellow monoskiers and program directors. Registration to this event closes on Dec 2 at 5pm EST.
The clinic is presented by High Fives Foundation, and sponsored by Inntopia, DynAccess, and Tessier, and is made possible by the collaboration of Green Mountain Adaptive Sports, Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers, Eastern Adaptive Sports, Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country, and the Kelly Brush Foundation.

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.

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.
