Movie Monday: The Lazyboy – A Short Documentary on Alex Cairns
The Lazyboy – A Short Documentary on Alex Cairns from NPFilm on Vimeo.
The “The Lazyboy” is a short documentary about Alex Cairns, a sit skier from Squamish, BC. He was born with Spinal Bifida which left him paralyzed from the knees down. 6 years ago his grandmother signed him up for his first ski lesson. Although he didn’t enjoy it much at first he stuck with it. Now Alex is 21 years old and skiing for the BC Para-Alpine Ski Team, but racing isn’t the only type of skiing Alex likes to do. Freeskiing is his true passion. Sending cliffs, shredding steep lines and boosting jumps was what attracted Alex to the sport.
