    Hey guys I am 17 and a T4 level. My injury is pretty recent 5 weeks post (I am sitting in my rehab bed right now). Before my injury there were two things I loved doing more than anything downhill mountain biking and snowboarding. I was just wondering if anybody on care cure had any experience with downhill mountain biking adaptive style! I only know of one rider and that is Stacy Kohut. I also am really interested in monoskiing i love backcountry riding and hitting the big jumps does anyone have any experience in this. And last I was wondering if maybe balance would be an issue in mono skiing because of my level of injury? Any insights and advice will be very much appreciated and I cant wait to get out there and start living again (hostpital is just too darn boring)

    Thanks for your help

    It will take a lot more than a SCI to keep me off the snow and out of the mountains. Man I cant wait to get going!

    Dear Buckanan-

    You and I share the same injury T-4.

    I am Incomplete T-4 and like your self as I sat in my Hospital bed I too wondered "can I still do......". Keep fighting in Physical therapy and NEVER give in to SCI.

    It is 4 years post injury and the things I wished for are some times coming about. I have noticed that if I have a perception about a dream of doing things I could do pre-injury the out come post injury is some times "different" but still "DO -able".

    Use the time now to develop what you want to do POST injury and work towards your GOALS!
