Story

Imagine being registered blind. Now imagine throwing yourself down a steep slalom race course at 45 mph, only knowing where to go by following your guide’s bright yellow jacket and listening to what she says via your bluetooth headset.

You can’t see the gates you race through. You don’t know where the edge of the piste is, nor if there are any trees or hazards around. You don’t know what the snow conditions are like – and forget about seeing other skiers. You’ve got no chance at spotting them!

Meet James and Alice, Great Britain’s kick-ass Visually Impaired ski racers.

James Luetchford is a Severely Sight Impaired (classified B2) alpine ski racer, who is guided by his wife, Alice Luetchford. They ski for Great Britain in international Slalom, Giant Slalom and Super-G races.

Ranked number 18 in the world at the end of the winter 2020/21 season, James and Alice are pursuing their dreams to qualify for the Winter Paralympic Games.
