12th Annual Heroes Ski/Snowboard Weekend

January 25 – 27, 2019

The Heroes weekend is one of OAS’ largest and most popular events of the winter.  The purpose of the event is to honor Pacific Northwest Veterans with long term disabilities and to have a great time enjoying winter in Central Oregon! Lodging for Friday and Saturday (one room per participant) as well as lessons in alpine skiing, nordic skiing or snowboarding are provided at no cost to the participant.

Family members: are welcome to participate in one of the many snow-sport options at Mount Bachelor. The primary purpose of the event is to serve veterans. If family members are proficient on snow or in the same learning zone as the veteran then they can be included in the lesson for that veteran. If a family member needs a separate experience than the veteran they can pursue another option: rent gear from Mt Bachelor directly, sign up for ski/snowboard lessons via Mount Bachelor Gravity School, or participate in other activities nearby such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing and tubing.

Schedule for the Heroes Weekend:

Friday, Jan 25th:

Dinner and a meet’n’greet with OAS volunteers and instructors provided by OAS. 

Saturday, Jan 26th:

Ski/snowboard day at Bachelor, starting promptly at 9am with an all-participant/volunteer/instructor meeting.  The on-snow portion of the day will include ski/snowboard instruction, equipment, lunch, and a group photo.  *The primary focus of the event is to assist veterans with disabilities with snow sports.
