The Mono-ski

The Mono-ski also known as a SitSki, is an adaptive competitive or recreational device for people with a disability such as a paraplegic or amputee. Though many can use a Mono-ski! You don’t have to be disabled or even competitive anyone and everyone can Monoski. Some compete on World Cup circuits and travel nationally or even internationally for competitions. The X games hosts an event called the Mono-cross. Where Monoski sit skiers race down a closed course going off of jumps and racing side by side. Many mono-skiers are very skilled, and that’s what I am hoping to portray through this blog. As well as my life’s adventures.

There are many different types of mono-skis and adaptive devices. To search some of this awesome equipment please CLICK THIS LINK to go to the Enabling Technologies website.  The brand and type of mono-ski i race on is known as the Tessier Monoski
