The Troop Triumph organization utilizes Adaptive Skiing, a form of skiing that enables veterans with disabilities to participate in Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding using specialized equipment. The first Adaptive ski programs were started for the veterans of WWII and have since expanded to include special needs riders of all ages and abilities. While the equipment used to get disabled riders on snow may be different, the outcome for those with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, visual and hearing impairments, post polio syndrome, and a wide variety of other disabilities is the same as able bodied riders, "I'm skiing!" We began operation on May 5th, 2012, at Timberline Ski Resort. Our team was able to host nine athletes from the Portland metro area. Since then, we strive to bring veterans to the mountain annually. Troops Triumph is an non-profit organization that is fully volunteer operated and costs nothing for the participants. As we continue our beloved program, we hope to see an expanded Adaptive Winter Sports Program on Mt Hood for all the potential riders here in the Portland, OR.
