New Outrigger and Cute New Tether-girl

Thanks to Marty, my Prosthetist, I can now use outriggers for Sit-skiing, which will hopefully allow me to ski unassisted in the future. The custom outrigger is for my left arm. It’s the same design as my crutch that allows me to walk. It has a socket that the remainder of my arm can rest in that is attached to an outrigger like the one that I use on my right arm.

Bruce, my instructor, in the C.A.D.S. Program, is an amazing guy – instructing me to become independent.
Our goal one day is for Marijo and I to get back on the bigger ski hills together – something we had never imagined was possible.

Marijo was learning to tether me today – which is like keeping me on a long leash – sort of like real life. 🙂 She hopes to take the instructors courses over the next few winters to ensure we are as safe as possible when skiing.
