Spirit Mountain hosts Great Lakes ski and race camp

DULUTH, MN– The 16th annual Great Lakes Mono-Ski, Nordic Ski and Race Camp was in full swing at Spirit Mountain on Wednesday.

27 skiers of all ages took to the slopes and practiced their skills.

Organizers say participants work to advance their mono-ski skills, and gain confidence to become an independent skier.

Olympic adaptive mono-skiers also participated and offered training to new adaptive skiers.They even film skiers and then provide video analysis after hitting the slopes.

Sports/Recreation Coordinator from the Courage Kenny Rehab Institute, Mark Hanna says, “Some people may look at this and say ‘aw that’s neat. They get them out skiing’. But it’s way more than that. It allows people that define themselves by what they choose to do with their life rather than just some clinical diagnosis”

Organizers say the event is the largest adaptive learn-to-ski event in the Midwest.

The camp runs through March 1st.
