“Well - we are back in Bermuda and I just wanted to send my thanks for the wonderful, inspirational and adrenaline pumping time I had with you, Chris, Dennis and Bill - it was such an amazing experience. I never thought I would get a chance to go skiing and take my family on a ski holiday - you guys are truly amazing and I cannot express how grateful I am for your dedication to adaptive skiing - I feel like a kid after Christmas - now it's over I have to wait a whole year for it to come back again!!! I am going to start training for the ultimate mono-ski - helicopter, black diamond insanity.”
“We wanted to thank you so much for the adaptive ski. I don't think he (Colin) has ever been so excited and is already planning his trip for next year. It truly made him feel more a part of everything. Here is a picture of him. Thanks again”
Sheri, Bill, Barrett and Collin Gallegos
“Hope this email finds you well. . .We had such a great time on our trip, which was made more memorable by the wonderful job you did with Eli. We can't wait to get back to Santa Fe next winter for more skiing. We will have to coordinate with you to make sure that you're available. Eli would love that. All the best”

“I just wanted to let you know that Josh and the rest of us had a great week at Ski Santa Fe. He has been talking about it all week and is already wanting to make plans again for next year. Please tell everyone (Bret, Kim, Art, Noel, Chris, Bruce, Mike, Fred, and Dennis) that we said hello and thanks for showing Josh such a good time. I have attached a few pictures as well. Hope all is going well”

“I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all of your work with the adaptive ski program in Santa Fe. I had a GREAT time on Saturday. It really lit a fire under me to start figuring out how to get my own ski so I can hit the slopes more often. Once per year just isn't going to cut it. I grew up in southern Michigan, so I never really had much opportunity to ski. However, being so close to Santa Fe, I should really take advantage of the mountain and the great program that you have. Thanks again for all of your hard work and sacrifice. I was also wondering if you have Steve's e-mail address. I'd like to thank him for all of his help and pointers. He was very helpful and patient. You are fortunate to have such great people as volunteers!
Just wanted to let you know that Ava has done great this season. She's made huge progress and has enjoyed every second! We are so proud of her and grateful for all of the wonderful volunteers. Have a good evening and see you on the slopes.
To Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to write a review for you all, telling you about our family’s experience over spring break this year. We are a family of 8, with our youngest child having a prosthetic leg. Our oldest two are seniors in high school and because of our youngest (she is 5 now), we haven’t been able to ski in several years (7 to be exact). We decided this year to try per the request of the seniors for their last year of high school. I researched no less than 10 ski resorts in Colorado and New Mexico. I called and emailed and searched online at options. Finally, I posed the question on Facebook as well, and one of our friends, whose husband has only one leg, told us to look at Ski Santa Fe. My husband and I skied there when our now-senior was 9 months old but not since. I looked into it and BECAUSE of the Adaptive Sports Program, ... Read More
I would like to thank you and and all the people involved with the Adaptive Sports Program New Mexico, for such an incredibly fun weekend at Elephant Butte Lake, New Mexico earlier this month. The atmosphere was wonderful. Everyone was willing to help out in any way they could, including staff, volunteers and other Disabled individuals and their caregivers. Everyone shared tips, tricks and any other kind of knowledge they could.
As an avid outsdoorman, being able to get back on the lake and in the water again cannot be put into adequate words to express how it made me feel inside.
I broke my back and became a paraplegic 2 years ago in January 2015. This was my first opportunity to get back in the lake since my accident... Read More
