Personal: Drew Shea started Para Nordic skiing as a way to help him recover after having his left hand amputated following an accident at age 21...He has since tried to soak up as much information about the sport as possible, even picking up pointers from teammate Dan Cnossen...A standing skier, he spent last winter training in Park City, Utah, and traveling regularly to Bozeman to compete in races...To his surprise, he qualified to compete in last year’s world cup in Slovenia...It was his first time skiing outside of the U.S. ...He named to the 2021-22 U.S. Paralympics Nordic Skiing Development Team...He now lives and trains in Bozeman.
