Vail Veterans Program
Created by Cheryl Jensen, the mission of the Vail Veterans program is to provide recent US military veterans the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard while focusing on their abilities, not disabilities. The program offers a positive transition for the veterans and their families into life with their disability, allowing them to experience the thrill of skiing and riding and overcoming adversity to get back on the mountain.

Project Victory was established to provide recreational education to troubled youth in order to develop strength and skills needed to lead a productive adult life. Through relationships with Vail Ski and Snowboard School instructors, participants learn not only to ski and snowboard, but also skills that promote trust, teamwork, responsibility, and respect for others. Project Victory began in 1997 with fifteen middle school students from Denver, Colorado and continues nearly thirteen years later encouraging self-esteem, confidence and accomplishment.
