One of the world’s best female sit-skiers, Joines is a two-time IPC world champion, 22-time IPC World Cup winner and two-time Paralympic bronze medallist. Joines, who suffered a spinal-cord injury in a terrain park accident, returned to competition in 2011-12 after recovering from a serious injury that ruled her out of the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Winter Games. When Joines isn’t racing, she can still be found on the slopes hitting the powder.
