The Adaptive Sports Center at Crested Butte Mountain Resort

KWB Resized Building Picture

The Adaptive Sports Center's Administrative and main Programming offices are located at the base of Crested Butte Mountain Resort in the brand new Kelsey Wright Building. Our mountain location is home to state-of-the-art adaptive equipment including monoskis, biskis, snowboards and downhill mountain bikes. Additionally, we have our locker room with over 200 ski lockers available for seasonal or short-term rental. 

In the years since we expanded our main offices in 2010, our ski, snowboard and downhill mountain biking programs have grown to become one of the best in the outdoor recreation industry. With access to incredible terrain and a large selection of adaptive equipment, your adrenaline rush will start the moment you walk through our doors. To top it all off, we have included a lounging area that provides you with a comfortable space to relax after a day of adventuring and get to know your instructor, all of whom are highly trained in the art of making hot cocoa.

The Kelsey Wright Building

The Adaptive Sports Center broke ground in Spring 2018 on the Kelsey Wright Building in the Crested Butte Mountain Resort Base Area. We opened the doors to the brand new building in July, 2019.

The new building doubles our square footage to run programs and house participants, and is ideally situated for winter offerings with ski-in, ski-out access. Key elements of the facility include:

  • Participant assessment space
  • Equipment modification and fit-up area
  • Physical therapy and exercise room
  • Adaptive climbing wall
  • One floor dedicated to client housing
  • Industrial kitchen for food service
  • Participant resource library
  • Administration workstations and offices
  • Meeting area and classroom
  • Basement for locker rentals

The Kelsey Wright Building Campaign was the Adaptive Sports Center’s most important campaign in our 30-year history. With your support, we improved the lives of thousands of individuals for decades to come. 

The Adaptive Building in the Town of Crested Butte

Thanks to the incredibly generous support of individuals within the Crested Butte community and beyond, we opened our summer outfitting facility in the heart of Crested Butte. This fully accessible building houses our road and off-road hand-cycles, kayaks, rafts, camping gear and interns. The Adaptive Sports Center is proud to call this place home.

Limitless Terrain (Lake Irwin, Blue Mesa Reservoir, Hartman Rocks and more)

The ASC has permit access to a wide selection of spectacular wilderness. Miles of hiking and biking trails extend from town up every nook and cranny of the valley. Kayak, canoe, paddle board, and camp with us on Lake Irwin, a remote mountain lake, or Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado’s largest body of water. The Gunnison River, a tributary to the Colorado River, serves as our dose of whitewater action and mellow paddling. Hartman Rocks Recreation Area offers endless rock climbing for both beginners and experts as well as stellar mountain biking trails. All of the world-class terrain in our corner of the Rockies is great for day trips to multi-day expeditions. Whether you're a beginning mountain biker, expert off-road hand-cyclist, or just curious about rock climbing, there is adventure waiting in Crested Butte for you.

The Adaptive Sports Center is an equal opportunity service provider and employer and operates under permit from the USDA Forest Service, Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forest.
