New Mexico Veterans had fun in the snow recently as they attended this year’s winter program with New Mexico VA Health Care System and the New Mexico Adaptive Sports Program. About 15 Veterans came out to the Ski Santa Fe mountain to learn from the many volunteer Adaptive Sports ski instructors.
Some Veterans were in tandem with their ski instructors as they went down the ski slopes, while some of them tried out the ski bikes, and others were strapped down to mono-skis as they zoomed down the slopes.
Kelly Nunez, occupational therapist at New Mexico VA Health Care System said “it was a great day on the slopes with the veterans. I just loved seeing the smiles on their faces as they skied the slopes of Santa Fe.”
