Disabled vets take on Rocky Mountains.
MORE than 400 disabled veterans participated at the 21st National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass Village.
Some 100 injured service members from operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom also participated.
The clinic provided disabled veterans opportunities for self-development and challenges through sports and leisure activities that included scuba diving, sled hockey, snowmobiling and rock climbing.
Visually impaired participants used skis and snowboards. Those who could not ski standing upright used adaptive equipment mounted on one or two skis.
