Jeff Dickson

Jeff was introduced to skiing at the age of 3 by his parents. After his accident, which resulted in a paralyzed left arm and the loss of his left foot, he met Paul DiBello in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, and learned to race in Winter Park Colorado.
In the 1970’s, he raced against Nancy Green and in the Inco Cup races. From 1989 to 1992, he found a home at Winter Park, where he perfected his racing technique. The following year, he moved in with Jim Lagerstrom of the US Ski team to train in Vail, Co.  In 1992, at the Tignes Paralympic Winter Games, Jeff won the gold medal in the Slalom and bronze in the Super G and the downhill. Back from Tignes, Jeff continued to show impressive results, winning the Slalom gold at the 2003 World Cup in Kimberley, Canada.
Jeff is very modest and values people around him. He believes that one should never give up in life and should pursue one’s goals. Today, Jeff owns a business in Sudbury, his hometown. Jeff’s family is also very involved in sport: both his sisters are triathletes.
