Redefining Instructor

Bobby Layman

Nothing is impossible, we just have to go about it in a different way. You have to take the Dis out of Disability. That makes Ability.

Bobby Layman was only sixteen in 2003 when he suffered a massive closed head injury while doing a 360 skiing in Snowmass. He landed on his head and chest and his heart stopped beating. Doctors did not expect him to live, walk, or talk. Today, the 27 year-old has defied the odds and is teaching ski lessons to others with and without disabilities. He obtained his PSIA-AASI Level 1 alpine instructor certification in 2012 and his Level 1 adaptive instructor certification in 2013. He has become an inspiration in his hometown of Silt, CO and at Snowmass, as part of the Challenge Aspen Organization.
