Military to the Mountain
Our appreciation for the men and women who serve our country runs deep.
Military to the Mountain (M2M) is a way to tell the stories of U.S. Veterans choosing to embrace goal setting and athleticism as a way to enjoy life and all of its challenges.
22 Veteran participants 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 Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows & Granby Ranch, Colorado.

To fund the program, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows created a $169 season pass for veterans, active-duty military, and members of the Department of Defense. Every penny of those pass sales goes directly to M2M.
"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
