Alpine skiing is one of the top Special Olympics sports. Stay up to date with alpine skiing news, events and competition results on this page.
Alpine skiing is a demanding sport, and athletes will benefit by being in good physical condition to compete successfully and safely. Alpine skiing requires, in addition to a basic combination of endurance and strength, a high capacity of quickness and action/reaction endurance. Through proper training, the athletes improve their physical, psychological and mental efficiency.
Special Olympics Washington athlete, resident DJ, and social media advocate Shane Misner has been part of the organization since his Middle School years. He first joined through the Edmonds School District, and after graduating became a coach with their programs. Shane has worked at Costco for many years, and lives by the motto “No Limits”. Always looking for a challenge, he recently climbed Mount Rainer. He lives to inspire and encourage other Special Olympics Athletes and wants everyone to know, “You can do anything you want, just set your sights and believe!”
