The pacific northwest is well know for a variety of outdoor adventures including hiking, biking, climbing and skiing but for people with disabilities, these can seem like impossible activities to participate in. The organization Ski 4 All is making it possible and as you'll see there summer programs offer a wide variety of outdoor adventures. *Cheering for the climber* The mission of the SKIFORALL foundation is to improve the quality of life of children and adults with disabilities in the outdoors We offer year round outdoor recreational programs for kids and adults skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cycling, hiking, camping, if you can do it in the outdoors and enjoy it in the northwest, we're here to make it happen We all have different abilities and some of us have different levels of what we can and cant do what we try and do in accommodating those disabilities is not so much focus on what they cant do, but recognizing what they can it allows them to try things that alot of people think cant be done and their just right here, you can see it possible Nice job, Ya, It was great, It was awesome , its such a sense of freedom and at first i really resented it, you have to be kidding, and then I went and checked it out myself, and said thats it and i have been hooked ever sense Theres great therapeutic value in what we do Just the joy of being outdoors, and being active, has a huge value to it, and thats what SKI FOR ALL has done for me Its given me the option to be active again with the disabilities i have we also have over 500 volunteers that make are mission possible. Without are volunteers theres no way we could do what we do Its just alot of fun and its just wonderful to watch them have a blast Partnership between the participant with disabilities and the active volunteer or the staff member, we really enjoy what we do
