All work and no play makes Ed a very dull boy. So, I took the family skiing last week. It was a blast. They had a good time out there shivering in the snow, doing stuff like: fall down, get up, repeat. Not my idea of fun. I spent my vacation snoozing inside a nice warm lodge before a fire. Yeah.
We visited Snowshoe, West Virginia. It’s a great place to go for anyone wanting to try winter sports. And I do mean anyone. Ed’s visual impairment did not keep him off the slopes. They have an adaptive ski program there, and he had a great time with those folks.
The team at the Adaptive Sports Center are happy to offer one-on-one lessons for people with hearing, visual, and developmental impairments. They’re available to instruct folks with 3 and 4 track skis, mono- and bi-skis. But don’t go the week beginning February 28. That’s when they hold their Wounded Veterans Camp.
And lest you think I never made it outside, this photo (on the left) is evidence that I did check it out once with Ed and one of his kids.
Thanks for checking in. It's time for me to get back to work.
