VA members with disabilities can ski free on Friday

VA enrolled members with disabilities are welcome to ski free Friday at Holiday Valley as part of the VA Western New York Healthcare System Recreation Therapy Program.

The Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program will host eligible veterans at Holiday Valley Ski Resort in Ellicottville. Veterans enrolled in VA health care are welcome to participate. They can register by calling 862-6814.

Ski passes and stand-up or adaptive equipment are donated by the ski program.

“This is a great partnership and winter activity for veterans,” Pamela Kaznowski, recreation therapy program supervisor, said in a news release. "Recreation therapy offers so much to improve quality of life. This could be a veterans’ first experience in winter sports and a day of camaraderie with fellow veterans, giving them the inspiration to take their rehabilitation to a higher level.”
