Anyone in the Province of BC who has a physical, cognitive or developmental disability and wants to learn how to ski (Alpine or Nordic/Cross Country) or snowboard was invited to attend Adaptive Snowsports Learn to Ski Week 2018 Winter Snowsports Festival from January 7th – 11th. Every year My Tech Guys representative, Bob Wells is there offering on-site tech support and of course keeping an eye on his own kids Meghan and Conner. The twins were born prematurely, resulting in a variety of physical and developmental disabilities for both children
Skiing with VISAS and at the Winter Snowsports festival has helped give the twins a sense of belonging and “has really helped Megan and Connor build their confidence in their day to day lives as well as challenging them in ways they wouldn’t be otherwise,” says Bob in his own words. Both children have been asked to join the VISAS Snowsports Development Team when they are older, which is helping to motivate them to keep pushing themselves to become better skiers.
