As we celebrate the final day of our ski season in Telluride, we look back on what an incredible winter it’s been for all facets of TASP life.
Telluride Adaptive stayed busy to the very last day with multiple programs running simultaneously. The final week of the season found our Marine’s Camp participants pushing their limits in the gorgeous sunshine of spring and the fresh overnight dumps of snow. While some of our country’s servicemen and women were enjoying perfect turns on the resort, others were adventuring among hillsides, lakes, and rivers of the region led by TASP staff in partnership with Wounded Warrior Project. These warriors were able to explore the natural beauty as well as themselves with the support of their military brothers and sisters through therapeutic group discussions and exercises.
In the weeks prior to these military experiences, TASP hosted a variety of regional school groups and allowed the local youth with disabilities to experience the joys and challenges of skiing. Additionally, Telluride Adaptive’s Special Olympics ski team competed in State Competition with incredible successes and breakthroughs for teammates.
During these events and programs, TASP’s Enabling All Program trained over 80 fifth graders from the local public school in adaptive techniques and philosophies. All the while, visitors from across the nation and across the world came to participate with TASP for ski and ride lessons, ice climbing, nordic skiing, and the endless adventures TASP has to offer.
Thank you to the entirety of the TASP community for your unwavering support. The generosity you provide us with your time, donations, and shared passion is essential in the completion of yet another successful and empowering season.
