John Carlin’s Outdoors | Kinzie Dickman takes adaptive skiing to a new level
Kinzie Dickman was a standout athlete until a car crash cost her the use of her legs. She dropped into depression until she discovered adaptive sports at Snowshoe Resort in West Virginia. With a bit of practice, she has once again found the freedom to fly down the slopes. And now she is taking the sport to a new level as she tries for a spot on the Paralympic team. Not only has she discovered the freedom of the wind in her face, but she has found something within herself as she instructs others how to follow her path.
