Being a visually impaired ski racer requires more financially, because the adaptive equipment for a VI racer is a guide. Caitlin is responsible for providing equipment, travel fees, race fees, training fees etc for not only herself, but her guide as well. In the 2010 Paralympics, Caitlin was also required to pay her guide a salary on top of that, which led to a total budget for the 2009-10 season of $106,000.00. Going forward for the 2014 Games, Caitlin’s sister Jamie has graciously volunteered to be Caitlin’s guide in order to defer some of the cost, as she is not requesting a salary.
