Roughly 350 military veterans participated in events put on by the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic — now in its 29th year — this week in Snowmass, Colorado. The events ranged from skiing and snowboarding, to kayaking and scuba diving, but regardless of the activity, the spirit remained the same — reaching new peaks, both literal and figurative.

“I don't think in 29 years, anybody has ever said, ‘I can't do it,'” said Ron Hope, Disabled American Veterans national commander.
