Wasatch Adaptive Sports (WAS) are the most friendly people I have ever dealt with. They were super helpful in instructing me how to enjoy the outdoors in Utah during the Winter. While I was learning to ski I felt as if I didn't even have a disability. They bent over backwards to make my experience there more then memorable.
Thank you WAS!!!!
