About Us

Rebuilding Confidence through Extraordinary Mountain Experiences.

There is a freedom in the mountains that can’t be found anywhere else. It invites us to abandon everyday boundaries and reconnect with our self-confidence and inner strength—and it’s the basis for everything we do. Through rehabilitative sports and recreation activities, Vail Veterans Program helps to rebuild confidence and provide a sense of freedom from catastrophic injuries including: loss of multiple limbs, severe burns, spinal cord injuries, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and traumatic brain injuries. These services are provided free-of-charge to wounded warriors and their families, allowing for much-needed time away from the hospital and offering hope for the future.

Mission

Provide military injured and their families with innovative and transformational programs that build confidence and improve lives
