It's no secret Montanans like to get outside, but for those who are disabled, outdoor opportunities are hard to come by. Today Eagle Mount volunteers were at Moonlight basin for their 'demo day', showing off how they help disabled people hit the slopes. Volunteers demonstrated how they use mono skis, bi skis, and ski legs.
This is the second year Eagle Mount has hosted its demo day. Organizers say its about showing the public what keeps their 200 plus volunteers busy all winter.
"You get to work with individuals who never though that they could walk again, you get to work with individuals who their parents never thought that they'd participate in any activity again, and get to see smiles on some of their faces, sometimes for the 1st time" says Eagle Mount volunteer Trevor Hildebrand.
Eagle Mount is hosting another demo day Friday at Big Sky resort from 10am until 3pm.
