Never saw this before, pretty cool
In all my years as a kid to current. I have never seen anything like this, I know it's not a huge deal when you read it but tons of us were talking on the lifts, thought it was way cool.
Yesterday our hill had a group of blind skiers. Themselves and their guides were all wearing high viz orange vests. I didn't get a chance to talk with any of them, wish I did. Since I ride a lot of single lifts many of us were talking about seeing them. NOT one negative comment, one guy said several of them were strong riders. I'm not sure if they were totally blind or legally, not that that even matters. I just thought this was super cool.
Not sure I would have the courage to try this but it was great to see them out there.
