    Wheelchair Sledding Seattle Snow


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Seattle artist jessehigman, a quadriplegic, built a sled that he attached to his wheelchair and had some friends take him sledding in the Capitol Hill neighborhood yesterday. 'It has always been impossible for me to go out and snow deeper than a couple of inches. I cut up two of my old paintings and laminated a top and bottom to the sled. … I made bindings for it by screwing on blocks of wood, with two zip ties to secure each tire. I put two coats of glossy varnish on it and Wow, was it smooth! I have never gone so fast in the wheelchair,' he said.

    My friend Motzo and I use different lenses to video paintings in my studio. Today we built a sled and went to Cal Anderson park with my neighbors Rob, Kelsey and Owen!
