Remember that brilliant cold day with friends when the snow was perfect, with some powder remaining, and the contrast of the snow with the sky was stunning? You could look into the sky and it was nearly black, as if you were looking into deep space.   You were carving good turns and the moguls were not intimidating but you had to keep running so you could get down and come back up to get in another run.  The skiing and scenery transcended mere motion and sight and became forever imprinted in your head as one of the finest days of your life.

Skiing with you are the adaptive skiers, perhaps one a returning warrior, all benefiting from the revitalization derived from the on snow experience

Remember those sounds of preparation in the electric atmosphere near the starting gate? The senses of the young racers and the coaches and the officials were at a high state of readiness. There was stamping and running surfaces back and forth to ensure a clean running surface. Quiet last minute advice and encouragement; then the countdown and with shouts from friends the racer disappears.

Remember when you saw your first ski jump or aerials meet? It was unbelievable what the aerialists did in flight or the sudden appearance of a jumper off the ramp and the sudden soaring, soaring of a sleek human reaching, reaching for distance and a perfect landing.
