It took 29 years, but I finally was able to get out on the slopes again. I was on the Southfield High Ski Team, and even earned three varsity letters, but hadn’t been skiing since my last meet in high school. Before my diagnosis in 2015, I had scheduled family ski lessons through a program called Discover Michigan. I was unable to go because of my condition, but Lisa and the kids went and had a great time. Now that I’m healthy, I signed up again this year. We spent that day at Mt. Holly. It felt very comfortable and I had no problem getting around on skis. It was in the single-digits, but we dressed for the cold and it turned out to be a non-issue. Looking forward to going again.
