ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Skiing — and life — are all about “managing the unexpected,” according to Chad Foster. Especially when you can’t see where you’re going.
Foster would know: The avid skier, motivational speaker and tech executive has been blind since his teenage years. He recently returned to the slopes of Snowmass to continue a now seven-year tradition skiing with Challenge Aspen, an adaptive sports nonprofit based in the Snowmass Mall.
“If you’re looking down the mountain, you’re probably picking out a line and you’re skiing to that line. I don’t have that luxury, so I can’t really anticipate,” Foster said. “Skiing while blind, I think we have to be really nimble because things change so quickly.”
