Adaptive Skiing at Bogus

Learning to ski rarely goes according to plan."The parents come to me in tears," said Fernando Veloz.  But at Bogus Basin, those are tears of joy. "They say how happy they are just to see their child out enjoying the wintertime," said Veloz, a co-director of Recreation Unlimited's adaptive skiing program at Bogus Basin.

For more than 35 years, the program lets individuals with hearing or visual impairments, developmental disabilities or limited to no usage of limbs learn to ski. "It gives these students a whole new level of confidence with what they can do and how they can do it," said John Mulligan, the other co-director of the program. "Our motto is 'if I can do this, I can do anything.'" Mulligan said the group has 60 students and 50 instructors.
