The Chartis 2012 Winter Summit, benefiting Disabled Sports USA’s (DS/USA) Warfighter Sports Program is underway at Stowe Mountain Resort, having started on Tuesday, and ending tomorrow Yesterday, some of my fellow patrollers and I rotated through short shifts at the top of the race course, keeping a patrol and EMT presence on the hill, from start to finish.

Here are 3 photos I shot with my iPhone shortly before the race began.

While on the slopes, event attendees were able to participate in practice runs with celebrity ski host and Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe. ABC News Correspondent Bob Woodruff is serving as the event’s keynote speaker.

In its 24th year, the Winter Summit is a business-building event attended by a number of participants across the insurance industry. The event combines Chartis-led panel sessions with ski and snowboarding races, forming a fundraising platform on behalf of DS/USA whose Warfighter Sports Program offers sports rehabilitation for those wounded in combat.  Mr. Woodruff’s remarks on the closing evening of the Winter Summit will address efforts to assist injured service members, veterans and their families -- including those involved in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars – along with related issues.
