One In Five for 18 August 2013

From One In Five, 7:05 pm on 18 August 2013

This week One in Five takes to the slopes as Katy Gosset visits Cardrona Alpine Resort's Adaptive Snowsports programme. The scheme is the one of the largest in the country and enables people with disabilities to enjoy the snow using bi and mono skis and a range of other adaptive equipment. At the helm is Jane Stevens who also oversees adaptive programmes around the country on behalf of Snow Sports New Zealand. Katy talks to Jane as she trains a group of international volunteers keen to lend their services to the programme. And she also meets with one of the scheme's most famous graduates, Paralympic Gold Medallist, Adam Hall, who is currently training at Cardrona for the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
