The bi-ski was developed for individuals who ski in a sitting position. This may include those with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, spina bifida or individuals with spinal cord injuries.
A bi-skier sits in a molded fiberglass shell above two specially designed skis. The two skis give a wider base and better balance than a mono-ski. The bi-ski can be skied independently with the use of two hand-held outriggers for balance and turning. The bi-ski is a good option for beginner skiers and those with limited or no upper-body strength as the fixed outriggers and a handlebar can be used to ensure balance. Bi-skiers using fixed outriggers are always tethered by the ski instructor.
All lessons include lift ticket, equipment, and private instruction with a minimum of two instructors. We have a staff of over 100 highly trained volunteer instructors. Over two-thirds of these are certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America or the American Association of Snowboard Instructors.
