Our team is working to improve accessibility for skiers with impaired leg movement. We've partnered with Swain Mountain's Shared Ski Adventures program to build a lift that will help them transfer skiers from a wheelchair to a sit ski and back, which reduces strain on volunteers who currently have to lift skiers manually.
