VIRTUAL Après MonoSki Clinic & Chat
Sunday, January 17, 2021, 4-6pm
Adapting is at the core of our business, and this is exactly what we are doing with what would have been the 9th Annual Stowe Monoski Day. This year, we will be enjoying the event via Zoom, from the comfort of our living rooms. Note that we are conveniently hosting the event from 4pm to 6pm EST so that you can still enjoy a day at the mountain, and join us for the Après!
The main goal of the event remains the same as always: to bring together adaptive monoskiers, instructors, and anyone interested in the world of adaptive skiing to share knowledge, to learn from each other, and to receive top notch ski instructions and advice from industry experts.
This year’s event will include discussions about recent developments in the world of adaptive skiing, equipment maintenance and adjustments, and review technique through video analysis. We will also go over recent innovations in mobility, and invite attendees to participate by providing photos of their monoski or other new sports equipment, a short video for the movement analysis, and to share stories of recent innovations.
The event is generously sponsored by Inntopia and made possible by the collaboration of Green Mountain Adaptive Sports, Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers, Eastern Adaptive Sports, and the Kelly Brush Foundation.
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.
