TSV & NFO Military Family Appreciation Ski Week

The Largest & Most Affordable Military Family Ski Event in the Nation at Taos Ski Valley Receives a VA Adaptive Sports Grant

Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico – Taos Ski Valley (TSV) and Not Forgotten Outreach, Inc. (NFO) invite past and present Military Members, their immediate families, and Gold Star Families to enjoy the 6th annual Not Forgotten Outreach Ski Week, from January 22nd – 27th, 2019. Providing an affordable week on the slopes, this opportunity includes free equipment rentals, $40.00-day lift tickets, group lessons, and steep discounts on lodging, Children’s Ski School, childcare, and more. The event also incorporates group dining, encouraging participants to both spend time together as a family and build relationships with new friends. Through social connection and bonding opportunities, the whole family may reap the healing benefits of community.

Not Forgotten Outreach, Inc. is a Taos, New Mexico non-profit that brings together military families from all over the USA at Taos Ski Valley for a fun-filled experience on and off the slopes. The ski resort, started by WWII veteran Ernie Blake, provides a wonderful wintry setting for military members and their loved ones to take an affordable and accessible vacation. Lodging discounts to Military Families are graciously being offered by fourteen different hotels in the Taos area, including The Blake at Taos Ski Valley, El Pueblo Lodge, and El Monte Sangrado. Parents will also enjoy steep discounts at the new state-of-the-art Children’s Center, where children of all ages learn using terrain-based-learning and Perfect Progression techniques; the kids will gain a level of on-snow comfort faster than ever before in a safe environment, so that parents can make the most of their time on the mountain!

Active duty Wounded Warriors Scholarships are available during the ski week: Through a VA Adaptive Sports Grant, NFO is offering five (5) scholarships for skiers/snowboarders currently on active duty with vision, intellectual/cognitive, or physical-related diagnoses. The scholarship includes meals, lodging, lift tickets, equipment, and lessons for the service member and their family members.

NFO’s therapeutic and recreational opportunities for Disabled Veterans and Disabled Members of the Armed Forces provide a year-round “Whole Health Lifestyle” approach in adaptive sports to facilitate the healing process and overcome reintegration challenges. The program supports a Whole Health Lifestyle by providing opportunities to improve relationships, build camaraderie with other Disabled Veterans and Civilians, while also encouraging mindfulness, sports development, self-esteem, and personal well-being.
