Kurt Oatway has been skiing since he was five-years-old and started racing with the Nancy Greene Program when he was six-years-old and continued to race competitively until the age of 16. In 2007, while on a field school with the University of Saskatchewan in Utah, he fell from a rock outcrop sustaining a compression fracture of the T12 vertebrae resulting in an incomplete spinal cord injury. He began sit skiing in 2010 as apart of his continuing rehab, and reconnected with his skiing roots. Joining the Canadian Para Alpine Ski Team in 2014, he has since went on to claim numerous IPC World Cup podiums and has had consistent results throughout his career.  He also went onto win the IPC World Cup Downhill Crystal Globe for the men’s sitting category for the 2015-16 season. A year later, Oatway was named to Canada’s team for the 2017 World Para Alpine Skiing Championships set for January 2017 in Italy, but broke his arm in a training run and could not compete. Just a few days before his injury, Oatway was third in the downhill training run. He had been on pace to do well at the 2017 World Championships as earlier that season, he won silver and bronze medals in the downhill at the World Cup stop in Austria. In 2018, Oatway attended his second Paralympic Games and achieved a career-first Paralympic medal, winning gold in super-G.
