Ski Racing with a CI - 1/15/2008
This is Nichole's second year racing for her High School Alpine ski team, thought the first with her CI. I asked Nichole how the CI worked, what with wearing a ski helmet and all. She said it was *much* better than her hearing aids. She can hear a lot more, especially because she doesn't get any feedback with the CI. Last year, she would turn the volume down on her two hearing aids, to keep them from whistling. Now, since she can hear so much with the CI, she simply is turning off her hearing aid and relying completely on the CI!
