United States veteran Derrick Ross was chosen from the Dallas, TX area to train for 9-weeks (length of a traditional bootcamp) with the Adaptive Training Foundation to prepare for a week of skiing/snowboarding at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in the 2018 Military to the Mountain Program. The Military to the Mountain Program started with US Marine Core Veteran Corporal Jacob Schick in March 2015 returning to the slopes, and through media and generous donations from Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and many more, the program will see 22 US veterans sliding down snow in March 2018.
“Never underestimate the power of a high five!”
