The Newest Skier of the Family!

Luka started skiing this winter and he loved it! He has left hemiplegia (paralysis) therefore has a tendency to turn to the left on his skis, and he falls more frequently than most new skiers, BUT he kept smiling and laughing. Luka learned to get on and off the "magic carpet" all by himself and he even tried the chair lift a few times!

With every fall came deep belly laughter. He amazed me with his positive attitude and his perseverance. We tried the smallest skis we could find for him on his third ski day of the season, which really helped his balance.

We are very much looking forward to many days on the slopes next year! Luka also tried snow shoeing this year and managed to walk about 300 feet. We were impressed!
