This column will explore the recreational and wellness opportunities for individuals with disabilities throughout New Hampshire. We’ll begin with a look at adaptive alpine skiing: the equipment used, the challenges faced by athletes learning to ski, and an overview of a day in an adaptive ski program.
Please feel free to share your experiences with adaptive sports and recreation. You can reach Bill Cobb by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bill Cobb is a year-round volunteer with and serves on the Communications Committee of Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country. He resides in Littleton.
The mission of Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country is to ensure the enrichment of the quality of life for people with disabilities through year-round sport, recreation, and wellness. Their goal is to enhance the personal development and self-esteem of participants, and to provide an opportunity to take risks in a safe and supportive environment. Their core belief is that, for a person with a disability, the opportunity to experience the thrill of accomplishment can be a life-affirming experience. ASPNC is committed to including the families and friends of our participants, volunteers, partner organizations, and the North Country community in our efforts.
