12th annual Wounded Warriors Weekend–February 5-7, 2016

Our 12th annual Wounded Warriors Weekend will be February 5–7.

Everyone at Wintergreen Adaptive Sports, and the entire Wintergreen community, eagerly anticipates this event as soon as the snow starts flying each winter. It is a weekend built around finding new possibilities, setting new limits, and providing lots of time for pure fun–and relaxation,–for our honored warrior guests and their families.

In the tradition of this always exciting weekend, Wintergreen Adaptive Sports will provide–at no cost to our honored guests–welcome bags, snacks, nourishing meals, all lift tickets and equipment, all housing accommodations, and ski or snowboard lessons for not only those being honored, but all spouses and children as well. Special children's activities are also planned. WAS is especially grateful for the housing accommodations provided by over thirty Wintergreen resort resident families.

Following a full day of snow sports on Saturday, February 6th, we'll convene in the evening for our annual Wounded Warriors banquet to salute the warriors and their families, the WAS and Wintergreen Resort staff, and for the many community volunteers who assist us on this weekend. Without the generosity of and collaboration among these groups and individuals, it would be impossible to hold this special event.

We welcome both donations and helping hands. If you'd like to contribute to this year’s weekend of appreciation for the brave men and women, injured in the line of duty, or would like information on the event, please send us an email to info@skiwas.org.

For our Wounded Warrior weekend, and for our "Everyday is Warrior Day" program, all wounded warriors are welcome to this event.

Wintergreen Adaptive Sports defines a Wounded Warrior as a service member (veteran or active duty) who has a disability that either resulted from wounds, injury, or disease received in the line of duty as a direct result of armed conflict; or was caused by an instrumentality of war and was incurred in the line of duty. 

If there is limited space due to instructor availability, priority will be given to those injured after 2001 in overseas combat, those injured while directly engaged in armed conflict, and those who are attending their first event or are "never-ever" skiers and riders. 

Wintergreen Adaptive Sports encourages our wounded warrior students to include their families in the Wounded Warrior Weekend. All spouses, partners, children, and caregivers will receive the same complimentary accommodations as our wounded warrior students.
