Alpine Skiing

LW9-1


Movement moderately affected in one arm and one leg on the same side.

Absence of one forearm and one lower-leg on opposite sides.

 


LW9-1 skiers are moderately affected down one side or in one arm and one leg.

They use varying equipment combinations though most will use a single outrigger, a mini-ski on a pole, for balance.

Generally, standing skiers all race together as LW1-9 using a factored timing system.
