The all-female SheJumps team basically dominated the Ability Challenge… if the categories were synchronized spread eagles, general enthusiam, and braving the “strong and damaging” winds in retro ski gear. As a team, we raised over $6,000 for Disabled Sports USA Far West, well over the initial team goal of $1600! Thanks again to everyone who donated. Knowing what sports have meant to me personally, it is amazing to witness the impact of providing accessible adaptive sports for so many people. Here is an article about the week long Wounded Warriors Camp that ends with the Ability Challenge.
The day of the challenge was maybe the worst weather of the ski season with 100 mph winds shutting down all of the Alpine Meadows with the exception of the slow 3 man chair, Hot Wheels – we raged Hot Wheels for 6 runs before calling it a day due to cold extremities and long lines. We had photographer and team member Lauren Lindley on hand to capture some of the awesomeness.
