Guiding Visually Impaired Ski Racing
Ski racing is a challenging sport. Now imaging you are visually impaired and competition at a World Cup level. These athletes require a ski racing guide to safely get them to the finish line and to also ski as fast as possible.
Kim Seevers raced with and guided Staci Mannella during the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games. Ray Watkins raced with and guided Brian Santos in the 1990’s and they have multiple world cup and Paralympic medals.
In this video Kim and Ray share what makes a good ski racing guide for the visually impaired. #abilitiesdiscovered
