Vicki Bancroft started skiing in the days of retention straps and slow chairlifts. It is a sport she loves and continues to enjoy with her friends and family. As a pediatric physical therapist, Vicki became involved in adaptive skiing five years ago and passionately pursues this special interest. As a ski writer, Vicki is a proud member of the North American Snowsports Journalists Association (NASJA)-East. In 2003, she travelled to Telluride, Colorado where she was awarded the Harold S. Hirsch Award for Excellence in Snowsports Website Writing. Today, she continues to work in physical therapy and freelance writing while finding time to ski, sail, kayak and live a good life. Her skiing has taken her to Switzerland, Canada, and Colorado but primarily, the New England slopes are home.
