REHABILITATION AND RENEWAL

The Far West Ski Foundation supports programs to enable snowsports athletes, as well as, programs for the enabled athlete.  The Foundation invests in the enabled athletes for their expected future contribution to snowsport through the scholarship programs.  The investment in enabling is directed toward investment in the use of on-snow rehabilitative techniques and adaptive skiing.

The Foundation views the 50-plus year’s history of adaptive skiing with high respect.  There is today a substantial population in snowsports that was formerly known as disabled who can now be called anything but limited.  The Defense Forces get a lot of credit in adopting on-snow techniques, starting with the veterans from the Vietnam War.

This flow of patients has continued with the influx of injured service persons returning from Afghanistan and the Gulf Wars. But the role of rehabilitation or restoration of confidence is not limited to veterans.

Following are some of the adaptive and rehabilitative programs that have received grants from the Far West Ski Foundation.
