Adaptive Sports Center

The Adaptive Sports Center enhances the quality of life of people with disabilities through exceptional outdoor adventure activities. The successful programs the ASC provides are inclusive to families and friends, empower our participants in their daily lives and have a positive enduring effect on self efficacy, health, independence and overall well-being.

The ASC was founded in 1987 when President, Mrs. Carter, joined a group of local residents to form the Physically Challenged Ski Program of Crested Butte. Since then, the program has evolved into the year-round, nationally recognized Adaptive Sports Center. Thanks to the support of volunteers, dedicated instructors and staff, as well as the local community, the ASC has thrived and grown from providing 33 alpine ski lessons during its first winter to becoming one of the premiere outdoor adaptive recreation programs in the world, offering more than 4,000 activities annually.

Heartstrings & Hoofbeats

"Heartstrings & Hoofbeats" is a PATH Int'l (Professional Assoc of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Center in the DTC area. The movement of a horse perfectly mirrors the walk of a human. Research is currently being conducted to see if as a result of this patterning, synaptic connections may be reinforced. Excercises to cross the proprioceptive system are incorporated. Sequential processes (1,2,3 steps) are reinforced as needed. Equine facilitated mental health activities/stress and anxiety-reduction are popular. Our horses are the co-therapists. They are nonjudgemental, accepting and listen well. We do our best to match clients to the appropriate horse. Each horse has a different "gait" or movement. In addition, each horse reacts differently to TBI clients. Some are much better with the angered and frustrated client; some horses are better with the withdrawn or silent client. At our Center, we have 2 registered PATH certified instructorsd (formerly NARHA) .
