STARS Youth Ski and Ride Camp a Huge Success!

The third weekend in March is always a fun one for adaptive sports, as 20-25 kids of all ages and their families descend upon Steamboat Ski Area to rip up the slopes. And rip they did.

The campers come from all over the country, as far as Pennsylvania and as close as Steamboat, the group totalled about 75 participants, coaches and volunteers. Coaching and support came from Steamboat partners Adaptive Adventures and STARS, teaching sitting and standing skiing techniques both on the slopes and in the racecourse.

Steamboat's support comes in by the truckload, with lodging, lunches, dinners, prizes, and goodies for all the kids, families and coaches.

This is STARS' second annual Youth Ski and Ride Camp, fitting into a lineup this year that will triple Steamboat's existing camp series to about nine camps in all seasons. Existing camps included adult and youth skiing in the winter, and all ages waterskiing in July. New camps will include a fly fishing camp set for June 25-27, road and mountain cycling, rock climbing, rafting, and hunting.
