Behind the 'Boat

Thanks to many sponsors, volunteers, donations, and co-organizers at Adaptive Adventures, our first wakeboard and waterski camp in Steamboat went off without a glitch and was deemed a huge success by AA, pros at organizing these camps all over the state for nearly ten years.

A dozen disabled waterskiers and wakeboarders of all levels got to test their abilities on Bald Eagle Lake, Steamboat’s private waterski lake, owned and donated generously by Ed MacArthur of Native Excavating.

Thanks to Steamboat’s huge support and welcoming attitude to these adventurers, we hope to continue this summer event, as well as our all-mountain ski winter event, on an annual basis. If you would like to know more about volunteering or donating to these two wonderful events, please contact us!

For the 7-minute video of this amazing summer waterski and wakeboard camp, we welcome you to email us! (You will need the latest version of Pando for this quick download.)
