Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra is a non-profit disability sport based in Mammoth Lakes, California.  They run a variety of programs including alpine skiing, snowboarding, Nordic skiing, kayaking, rock climbing, camping, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and horseback riding. In 2008, they became a Paralympic Sport Club, and they are affiliated with Disabled Sports USA.

 

The organization is very involved in the community, and runs a second hand shop to help fund some of the organization’s costs. In the past year, they have also been very busy working to develop a National Wounded Warrior Center.
