Ski week for military members at Taos Ski Valley
Not Forgotten Outreach, a nonprofit organization aimed at helping past and present military members through recreational activities and job training, and Taos Ski Valley are hosting the seventh-annual NFO Ski Week on Tuesday-Sunday (Jan. 21-26).
The event is catered to former or active military members as well as their immediate families and Gold Star families, too.
Daily lift tickets for the event are $40 and ski equipment rentals are $10.
"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," NFO's press release stated.
"Active duty Wounded Warriors Scholarships are available during the ski week: Through a VA Adaptive Sports Grant, NFO is offering five 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 members and their family members."
