The Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte CO is advocating for equal access to outdoor recreation activities for people with disabilities.
Since its inception in 1987, the center has accomplished this by offering adaptive adventures at a reduced cost. It’s new Adventure Equity Initiative allows people with disabilities to take ski and snowboard lessons for the price of a lift ticket at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
Now, for the remainder of the winter season, the Adaptive Sports Center is introducing the Adventure Equity Initiative, further reducing the cost of a full day private adaptive ski or snowboard lesson to $125 a day, the average price of a lift ticket at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
At the Adaptive Sports Center, participants have access to state-of the-art equipment such as sit-skis and 4-track sliders for skiers with spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, and other disabilities. All participants get one-on-one attention by an expert instructor. Many participants take lessons on an indefinite basis due to their need for adaptive services. These special considerations increase the cost of participation in enjoying these sports. The Adventure Equity Initiative levels the playing field.
