    Went skiing for first time

    Had the chance to go skiing using a mountain man bi-ski at Mt Sunapee in NH yesterday. Did 4 runs and loved every minute of it. They used "grip mitts" to buckle my hands to the outrigger handles and waist binders to hold the outriggers to my arms. Hoping to go back again...amazed to learn that I could steer by just leaning my head!

        I am jealous! I've wanted to do this for about four years now.
        Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

          I'm jealous too. I gave up skiing long before chair rolling due to weakening quads. With the support staff you have, it looks like you can have a blast. Go for it.
          I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.
