Military to the Mountains
The High Fives Foundation's Military to the Mountains program introduces veterans and first responders to the healing effects of skiing and snowboarding.
Military to the Mountains (M2M) is a way to tell the stories of U.S. veterans and first responders who choose to embrace goal setting and athleticism as a way to enjoy life and all of its challenges. M2M demonstrates our deep sense of appreciation for the men and women who serve our country, specifically those who have sustained life-changing injury.
22 Veterans and first responders are selected from the Adaptive Training Foundation in Dallas, Texas and through the City of Reno, Nevada. They are provided the opportunity to train for nine weeks, preparing for one week of skiing and snowboarding at Palisades Tahoe & Granby Ranch, Colorado.
Military to the Mountains is 100 precent free for participants - from transportation and lodging to training and outfitting participants with the right equipment and apparel.

"The goal of the program is to offer wounded war-fighters an opportunity to tap back into their physicality by pushing through mental and physical barriers. Experiencing the mountains for the first time post-injury redefines their limits and ignites new passion to take ridge lines they no longer thought were possible."
-David Vobora, Founder and CEO of the Adaptive Training Foundation
