Melbourne, Florida – December 3, 2013 - Ok Florida skiers, it is time to brush the dust off your skis, boots and poles and plan your first ski trip this ski season. This January 25th and 26th you can join military veterans on the slopes of Vermont’s Lincoln, Castlerock and North Lynx Peaks and Mt. Ellen. The National Association of the 10th Mountain Division and the 10th Mountain Division Descendants along with the Sugarbush Resort are holding their 1st Winter Gathering. This event is being made possible by the generous support from these sponsors: Sugarbush Resort, National Ski Areas Association NSAA, Professional Ski Instructors of America - Eastern Division PSIA-E, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Birnn Chocolates of Vermont, Inc., Green Mountain Valley School Ski Club , Vermont Ski Museum, and Vermont Adaptive Organization.

In addition to a great day on the slopes, there will be a showing of the Warren Miller Entertainment film, “Climb to Glory”. This film was a collaboration between the Colorado Ski Museum and Warren Miller Entertainment that produced a special, 45-minute documentary that tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troopers and how they transformed the U.S. Ski Industry after World War.
Information about this ski event and the “Climb to Glory” film showing can be found on the 1st Annual Winter Gathering Facebook page.
