Duration:

Overview

After developing a blood infection at 9 months of age, Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg in an amputation. That didn’t stop him from discovering — and pursuing whole heartedly — an unbounded love of skiing that shaped his life. Today, Sojitra shreds bumps, hucks rocks, plunders powder and, with the help of outriggers and incredible will, accesses backcountry lines. Out on a Limb is a short profile of an individual proving that disability can be a mere hiccup instead of an impediment to your dreams.
