The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced today that the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, which had been scheduled to occur from March 29 to April 3, in Snowmass, Colo., has been cancelled.
While the Centers for Disease Control still considers COVID-19 to be a low threat to the general American public, VA made this decision out of an abundance of caution.
VA is in the process of directly notifying all affected parties.
The department and its co-presenter Disabled American Veterans (DAV) look forward to serving our Veterans at the 2021 National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic.

A world leader in rehabilitation, the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic provides nearly 400 profoundly disabled Veterans with training and rehabilitation every year. Veterans with TBIs, spinal cord injuries, visual impairments, amputations and other severe disabilities are challenged to overcome perceived limitations through adaptive skiing, sled hockey, scuba diving, rock wall climbing, education and other activities.
