Freedom on the slopes

Holding Scooby-Doo, Grady McGrath, 5, is full of excitement as he heads toward the Columbine Lift on Tuesday at Durango Mountain Resort. Dave Trautmann and Bill Gothard, left, volunteers with the Adaptive Sports Association, help guide Grady, who was reluctant to put his feet in ski boots at the beginning of this year’s six-week program. On Tuesday, Grady, a student at Riverview Elementary School, made multiple runs down the hill. Grady’s parents are Chris McGrath and Sharon McCullagh-McGrath.
