Top 5 Reasons to Ski

By Sophia Berg on February 10, 2022

Kate is 26 with Cerebral Palsy AND is a rockstar guest! Here are Kate’s top 5 reasons she loves skiing:

  1. The progress I make on the hill each year. Who would have thought I’d go from being a sit skier to being able to ski standing up, holding on to a pole, and then winning skier of the year! It’s been an incredible journey.
  2. Getting to ski with my sister is so special!
  3. Spending time with my incredible coaches, who are constantly setting the bar higher, with new things for me to try every year.
  4. How my ski journey started – I was in grade 7, and all the students got to go skiing every Friday in January. The day before the first ski day (the day after my 13th birthday), I found out I got to go all the Fridays and ski with my classmates! I’ll never forget that!
  5. Getting to hang out with some pretty awesome people. I have made some lifelong friends through skiing.
