National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic Includes Snowmobiling






Snowmobiling at the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, held every year in Snowmass, CO, introduces military veterans to an activity that levels the playing field.

Riding on a Bearcat, no one can tell the difference between someone with a disability who uses a wheelchair or has a prosthetic limb and someone who is able-bodied. That is the point of the Winter Sports Clinic: to help veterans with disabilities learn new adaptive activities like snowmobiling and skiing so that they become inspired to go home and stay active.

This year, the clinic will take place March 25-30 with snowmobiling at the T Lazy 7 Ranch in Aspen. Participation is open to disabled U.S. military service veterans who receive care at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical facility.

In addition, a number of active duty military personnel from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom have attended in recent years.
