Miracles return to the mountain

posted on

The 29th National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic returns to Snowmass, Colo., March 29 to April3, bringing with it miracles on the mountain.

For decades, DAV and the Department of Veterans Affairs have co-hosted the annual event, which saw nearly 300 severely ill and injured veterans and active-duty service members participate last year near Aspen.

Participants ski, snowboard, scuba dive, kayak and rock climb, dominating every obstacle in their way. The event is open to our nation’s most profoundly ill and injured veterans. All of them push past seemingly impossible odds.

During the event’s 29-year history, thousands of our nations’ heroes have proved to themselves their injuries do not define them.

The event is made possible by generous private, corporate and nonprofit sponsors who recognize that the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic truly improves the quality of life for veterans and their families. It is an emotional and powerful journey where our nation’s heroes inspire each other with their unmatched determination to charge forward instead of step back.
