Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Jordan, age 17 of Sadler

Jordan, age 17 of Sadler, loves snowboarding. Jordan wears a prosthesis on his right leg, and he has been a patient at the hospital for the last five years. His favorite things include Skittles, playing basketball and hanging out with friends. Though this is his first ski trip with Scottish Rite Hospital, Jordan first learned to snowboard six years ago. That is something he’s really proud of, and he can’t wait to get back on the mountain.

About the Annual Amputee Ski Trip

February 2017 will mark the 36th anniversary of the annual Amputee Ski Trip, held each year at the National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado. Fourteen teenage patients with limb differences receive practical recreational therapy, while also having the opportunity to grow, build confidence and bond with others similar to them.
