Telluride Adaptive Sports

TASP is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people with disabilities by providing educational and recreational opportunities that encourage personal growth. Ski methods include mono-ski, bi-ski, dual-ski, 3-track, 4-track and adaptations of skis or snowboard, and guiding techniques for blind skiers. Instruction includes adaptive techniques, proper use of adaptive equipment and appropriate terrain for the student's skill level. Participants experience a wide variety of benefits including improved balance, muscle tone, flexibility and mobility. They also gain greater self-confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, which help build healthy relationships. Experiencing these educational outdoor activities and progressing or excelling in a sport on an equal level with able-bodied peers, allow participants to move forward much faster than traditional, less fun therapies.
