High Fives granted Tony Schmiesing over $3000 for a custom seat from Aspen Seating so he could pursue his dream of skiing the half-pipe with a bi-ski this winter. We are excited to fulfill his life-long U-Shaped Vision
A C 4-5 quadriplegic as the result of the spinal cord injury suffered at a beach where he grew up, and currently battling Syringmyelia, Tony's tenacious surf/skate/ski DNA has pushed him through all sorts of obstacles and has lead him into an endlessly surprising and beautiful life. 4 years ago Tony was bitten hard by the bi-ski bug when he hooked up with the folks over at Disabled Sports Far West at Alpine Meadows and the stoke hasn't subsided. With some assistance from High Fives, he looks to really push things forward this upcoming ski season. You can follow Tony at fasterbarnacle.com where he writes about life, skiing, music and whatever else scratches his soul.
