The National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic will be held for the 30th year at Snowmass.

SNOWMASS VILLAGE, Colo. – It has been dubbed a “Miracle on the Mountain.” For nearly three decades, Snowmass has held the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic.

It’s a place where veterans and civilians get to downhill ski despite injuries that would otherwise keep them from doing so.

Some say the clinic is like a boot camp, where coaches take the place of drill sergeants, pushing the athletes in events such as rock climbing, scuba diving and downhill skiing.

This is the 30th year for the event.
