Sparks, NV

United States veteran Will Sandell was chosen from the Reno, NV area to train for 9-weeks (length of a traditional bootcamp) with the City of Reno Parks and Recreation District to prepare for a week of skiing/snowboarding at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in the 2019 Military to the Mountain Program. The Military to the Mountain Program started with US Marine Corps 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 2019.
