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.
After conquering a snow-covered mountain-side, everyday challenges of life seem
much more surmountable for these participants who’ve lost a limb or sight, or endure paralysis.
