Help Support our Veterans

Winter Sports Clinic
Hello Friends and Neighbors,

It’s almost that time of year again. In just a couple of short months, Snowmass Village will once again be the gracious host to the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. This event has been hosted in Snowmass Village annually for 17 years straight, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our local community. Not only do our merchants, lodges, and restaurants show these veterans to a world-class experience, but together, we raised nearly $20,000 in 2016 to support lodging and airfare for individual veterans. This year, we're again asking you for your support to bring as many veterans as possible to Snowmass Village, March 26 – April 1, 2017. 

These veterans are arriving from locations all across the U.S. Their injuries and physical challenges can be severe and range from visual impairments, to traumatic brain injuries, to amputations. The Winter Sports Clinic presents meaningful experiences to these individuals, and gives participants the courage to learn or try something new while providing them a variety of rehabilitation opportunities.

The Winter Sports Clinic is the largest annual disabled veteran's winter sports clinic in the world. It provides a chance for disabled veterans of all ages to experience skiing, snowboarding, hockey, and a variety of other sports. For many, participation in the Clinic has been a life-changing experience. 

All attendees must raise their own money for lodging and airfare, estimated at $1,600 per individual. We ask you to please help sponsor one or more of these recently disabled young vets in whole or in part. Any size donation makes a difference, and you can donate in person or by mail.

In person or mail donations:
A special account has been set up at Alpine Bank in Snowmass. All donations are tax deductible, and the Department of Veterans Affairs will supply a tax number upon receipt of your contribution. Donations may be mailed to or dropped off at:

Alpine Bank
Attn: Cara Haugan – Snowmass Village DAV Fundraiser
15 Kearns Rd. - PO Box 5490
Snowmass Village, CO 81615

Checks should be written to the Winter Sports Clinic General Post Fund 379.
For more information on the Winter Sports Clinic please visit www.wintersportsclinic.org.
Thank you for helping to provide hope and encouragement to these men and women who have given so much for their country. Also, when you see the attendees around the Village during the Winter Sports Clinic, please take the time to thank these men and women for their service.

Sincerely,

Markey Butler
Mayor
