Amputees learn to ski in Park City
on January 29, 2009
Shriners Hospital in Salt Lake provides all sorts of orthopedic care for children throughout the western United States. Each year the hospital sponsors a special skiing and snowboarding camp at one of the resorts. This week, a dozen amputees are at Park City Mountain Resorts.
Twelve teenage amputees from five nearby states are spending the week at Park City at the Un-Limb-ited Ski and Snowboard Camp.
The National Ability Center also has facilities at Deer Valley, the Canyons and several other Utah resorts, as well as several hundred across the country. There's also a summer recreational program too.
