Adaptive Ski Week a Success!

With over 30 participants and over 35" of snow in 3 days, Steamboat's first Adaptive Ski Week was a screaming success! The participants got their skis warmed up on Saturday, March 11, and then were dowsed with 12" new powder on Sunday, and another 22" on Monday. Tuesday the group went up for a sunshine-filled backcountry cat-skiing day with Steamboat Powder Cats. This day was an amazingly inspiring day for every adaptive skier to learn the deep powder and for the volunteer to be witness to their smiles, appreciation, and new found skills!

Thanks to Adaptive Adventures, Steamboat Ski Area, and Steamboat Powder Cats, this week was an eye-opening event for not only the camp's participants, but the Steamboat community as well. Our local volunteers were excited to be a part of this new event, and plans for the second annual ski week in 2007 are already being determined.
