Skier Shreds Hard, Earns Turns … On One Leg

Vasu Sojitra is an amazing skier to watch rip turns with joyous abandon. He also earns his turns in the backcountry and happens to have just one leg, a fact that doesn’t seem to slow him down a bit.

Vasu was diagnosed with septicemia at just nine months old, resulting in the amputation of one of his legs. But since then, he’s become an inspiring figure in the world of adventure. Learn more at
