The National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic is a world leader in adaptive winter sports instruction for U.S. military Veterans and active-duty servicemen and women with disabilities. Set in stunning Snowmass, Colorado, the clinic celebrates its 27th year, bringing nearly 400 Veterans with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic amputations, visual impairments, certain neurological conditions and other injuries to the mountain.
Participating Veterans, seriously wounded while protecting our freedom, have an opportunity to pack more miracles into the weeklong life-changing event than they ever dreamed possible. They are reminded of the wonder and achievement life still has to offer, despite their profound disabilities. After conquering a snow-covered mountainside, everyday challenges of life seem much more surmountable for these participants who’ve lost a limb or sight, or endure paralysis. Our Veterans draw inner strength from this experience of a lifetime and use it to overcome life’s challenges head-on when they return home. They also inspire those without disabilities to catch their spirit and go after their dreams.
Since 1987, corporate, individual and organizational sponsors have helped make miracles possible for thousands of severely disabled Veterans who have attended the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. You can help our nation’s Veterans make miracles on a mountainside possible at the 27th National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, March 31- April 5, 2013.
