Adaptive Action Sports and ESPN Winter X Games!

Competitive adaptive snow-sports, including snowmobiling and snowboarding, have progressed in leaps and bounds over the past decade. For snowboarding, with the Paralympics as a long-range goal, the United States has helped to forge the way.

This winter at X Games 15 in Aspen Colorado, Adaptive Action Sports brought a ground breaking event to life: Adaptive Snowboarder X. Partnering with the X Games AAS invited six of the top ranked adaptive snowboarders in the world to compete in an all-out race to the bottom. Evan Strong, Mike Shea and Dan Monzo were among the competitors. They finished in first, second and third places.
