Helicopter flying over snowy mountain

Coming February 2024:
Sun Valley, Idaho

Challenge Accepted is proud to announce the official start of the mission in February 2024!

With a focus on small group cohesion, 6-8 veterans will embark on accessing backcountry snowboarding terrain.

Yes, this includes terrain accessed by helicopters!

In addition to snowboarding, event programming includes components of educational instruction on backcountry terrain/wilderness safety, yoga, mindfulness, health and wellness planning, and music therapy.

Veterans are selected based upon a number of requirements including qualifying disabilities, physical health maintenance prior to the event, involvement in service to veterans and/or the community, personal goals, and ability to snowboard in advanced to expert terrain among others.

The Future!

Challenge Accepted was created with the vision to provide epic opportunities for veterans with disabilities who snowboard at an advanced level. Some have asked, why not skiing too?

The answer is simple, snowboarding is just cooler than skiing!!!

All jokes aside, the real answer is that we are a brand new 501c3 and we’re small (big at heart nonetheless). There’s only 3 of us running the show right now and our major expertise is in snowboard instruction and equipment.

As we build our partnerships and sponsors we would love to have the team, funds, and support to open Challenge Accepted up to all stand-up and sit-down skiers, but we’re just not there yet.

You can help be a part of the future by donating now!

Past Events

February 2023: Sugarloaf Mountain, Maine

Challenge Accepted kicked off its pilot program in February 2023 with its first of many epic, life-changing adventures for veterans with disabilities. The program was a local, land-based snowboarding event. A small group of veterans were able to attend the 3 day, 2 night event at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine.
