CHALLENGE, INSPIRE, EMPOWER

Our team of professionally trained instructors and volunteers assess student needs, set up appropriate adaptive equipment and provide instruction or guiding services.

Welcome to the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing top quality therapeutic recreation to individuals with disabilities in order to promote independence and personal growth.  Our participants range in age from four to 94 and may have physical, emotional, and cognitive disabilities.

During the winter, we accomplish our mission of empowerment and challenge mainly through our adaptive ski school, providing tailored and individualized lessons daily throughout the season.  In addition, specialty programs, such as a Special Olympics race team, backcountry hut trips, and military oriented camps take place all winter long.  Our participants, whether a first time stand-up skier, or a veteran trees and bumps mono-skier, benefit greatly from our professionally trained instructors who are able to properly assess the student, incorporate appropriate adaptive equipment, and provide instruction or guiding services.

Summer finds TASP offering an even larger breadth of opportunities from off-road handcycle adventures set in the dramatic Moab desert, to rock climbing amongst the snowcapped peaks of Telluride.  Just as with winter programming, TASP proudly provides scholarship opportunities to those in financial need and supports local communities by providing regional-specific programming and opportunities.  As a further commitment to the community and our mission of inspiring, TASP conducts disability awareness trainings for local school aged youth in order to promote awareness and educate the next generation about the limitless potentials of adaptive recreation.
