Inhaltsangabe: Alpine Achievement is the first and only book to fully cover the sport of disabled alpine skiing—a sport that offers people with disabilities an opportunity to gain mastery over their bodies and enjoy the thrill and excitement of skiing alongside their able-bodied counterparts.
The book chronicles the history of disabled skiing from its beginnings in post World War II Europe to its current status as both a recreational and elite competitive sport. The reader will learn how members of the U.S. Disabled Ski Team overcame their physical disabilities to become elite athletes on the number one disabled ski team in the world. The author also covers the evolution of adaptive equipment and the scoring and classification system used in disabled ski racing.
Combined with an extensive appendix listing ski areas offering adaptive skiing, equipment manufacturers, and resources, Alpine Achievement is a must read for ski enthusiasts, rehab professionals, people with disabilities, and anyone interested in supporting disabled skiing as a volunteer, spectator, or behind-the-scenes fan.
A portion of every sale directly supports a member of the USDST.
