Often referred to as “Monoskiing”, “Bi-skiing”, or “Four-tracking”
Most commonly called Monoskiing, due to its most popular equipment configuration, alpine skiing is an extremely popular winter adaptive activity. Dozens of mountains across the US have adaptive programs offering various types of alpine skiing. People that can ambulate can enjoy four-track skiing, adrenaline junkies of various injury levels can enjoy monoskiing, with bi-skiing being a great alternative for beginners and higher level injuries, and the new tetra-ski enables skiing for high-level injuries.

Bi-skis provide more balance support than monoskis, and are a great option for beginners and those with limited to no trunk support. Bi-skis can be used independently or with assistance.
Four-tracking is a great fit for people with high levels of mobility, especially standing paras. “Four-track” refers to two skis + two outrigger supports, allowing for balance support without sitting.
