The Winter Park Amputee Ski Teaching System.
O'Leary, Hal
The three track method of teaching amputees to ski is presented in the illustrated manual. Problems unique to amputee skiers--care of hands, conditioning, care of stump, fatigue, excessive standing, wind, and balance--are discussed in terms of their implications to the amputee skier and practical solutions in attempting to solve them. Specific performance goals and step-by-step progressions are presented for walking; falling; getting up; hop turns; sidestepping; straight running; stopping; riding chair, T-bar, and Poma lifts; traverse; uphill Christy; Christy turn; Christy with preturn; and shortswing. Both pictures and drawings of the outrigger ski are included. (Author/DB)
