Crested Butte Open

CBO 2020 Black Logo


Dear Adaptive Supporters,

We hope this finds you safe and healthy. Much like the rest of the country, the COVID19 situation in the Gunnison Valley continues to evolve on a daily basis. Earlier this season, the county discussed possible guidelines concerning attendance limits for events this summer.  The guidelines suggest that the largest event size in August could be 50 people. In light of these uncertainties, we have decided to hold a virtual gala for the 25th Annual Crested Butte Open. Unfortunately, we have to cancel the golf tournament portion of the event entirely.

While we are heartbroken that we cannot gather together in the Lacy Arena and on the greens, we are hard at work to ensure that our virtual event will be entertaining and successful in continuing to support the mission of the Adaptive Sports Center. The event committee has come up with some really creative ideas that we will start unveiling soon. We hope that you will check out our auction items and join us for the virtual event. Please know that you, our supporters, are needed and appreciated. As the country begins to reopen and we adjust to a new way of life, our outdoor programs for people with disabilities and their families will be more important than ever before. Like many in the country, our participants have experienced isolation and limited access to nature and physical activity during this time. Our programs will help our participants experience the healing power of nature, gain confidence in themselves and explore the outdoor world around them. When we are permitted to get back to providing our programs, we will be ready with your support.

We are still working out the details for this year's event, so expect to hear from us again soon. In the meantime, please mark your calendar for the online auction to begin on July 29, culminating with a virtual gala on the evening of Sunday, August 2nd. 

Please plan to join us for the 25th Annual Crested Butte Open, and our first-ever virtual event! 



Check back for the full schedule of this year's virtual Crested Butte Open.

For this year’s virtual event, we are still looking for some assistance from our amazing volunteers. Our volunteers are vital to the success of the Crested Butte Open.

Although we will not need as many volunteers this year, we want you to know we have not forgotten about all of the help you have given us over the years and we hope that you will remain interested in volunteering with us in the future. We are optimistic that we can return to the live gala and golf tournament for 2021 and we will be reaching out once again for your support.

Tasks we could use help with this year include:

  • Helping spread the word about the event. Reach out to us for info.
  • Tech support during the virtually streamed live event on Sunday August 2nd.
  • Delivering food to watch parties for the Sunday August 2nd live event.
  • Helping to pack, ship, and deliver purchased auction items in the days after the event.

Please contact Lee Berglund at of you would like to become involved.
