In order to attend a Vetscape event you must be a VA rated disabled veteran of the Armed Forces. Some events will also be open to active duty service members as part of our mentorship programs.
Currently Vetscape is hosting Alpine Touring/Backcountry ski events but is ever expanding. Look for us to host a freediving certification course in the future!
As Vetscape is still in it’s infancy, we’re limiting attendance to service members at this time, as we develop further keep an eye out for family or partner oriented events.
The goal of Vetscape is to provide a cost free experience, we are non profit so there are times where we may require participants to cover certain costs. If this is the case it will be clarified early on.
At Vetscape we have no issue with prosthesis, all we ask is that you contact us to ensure you’ll be able to keep up with group activities, if so we’d love to have you along.
At Vetscape we use our experience to tackle issues from a multitude of angles, this is the reason why we include Movement Therapy, as well as classes within our activities. When you leave an event our goal is to have you better prepared for your future both physically and mentally.
Yes! Please bring whatever medications you’re currently on, just keep in mind we will be physically active and in various environments, so if in doubt reach out and make sure your medications will not interfere or be a safety concern.
No, Vetscape ski events are tailored to advanced level skiers, that have experience skiing in various conditions. We are however always ready to recommend our sister organizations that do provide this type of experience.
At our events drinking alcohol is not forbidden, however we don’t encourage it. Our events have a purpose, and we’ve seen in the past alcohol and other substances interfere with this purpose.
No, we do not require a COVID vaccination in order to attend our events. Please understand though that individual venues may have specific local guidelines they must follow, when this is the case we will ensure we inform you in advance.
In the plainest terms, this is a disabled veteran whom upon initial appearance looks normal, and doesn't allow their disability to limit them. We at Vetscape believe that wounds not seen are the most deadly, and many of our service members suffer alone due to the simple fact they look ok on the outside.
