Crested Butte Open

August 7 & 8, 2022

The Crested Butte and Gunnison communities undoubtedly love traditions. In this valley, you can almost set the clock to the annual traditions. Some dress up as lords and maidens and burn a 36-foot tall Grump, some ski the Last Steep on Telemark skis dressed up (and linked up) like a six-pack of cheap beer, some Polka (my personal favorite), and some don bolo ties and boots and head to the Crested Butte Open.

Ah, the CB Open: a 27-year tradition still going strong. One thing that stands out about this particular tradition is that it is for a great cause. Its proceeds transcend directly into the lives of approximately 1,000 people annually, and the ripple affects hundreds more. So yes, a tradition with a cause and a BIG reach – what could be better?

The Adaptive Sports Center’s sole purpose is to provide high-quality, adventure-based activities for people with disabilities and their families. The therapeutic value of the programming we offer is second to none. We strongly believe in our mission and we witness its outstanding effects day in and day out.

“This was my first time doing any adaptive activity outside of rehabilitation. I was so proud of myself after my amazing day mountain biking. I feel like I can try anything now. It really gave me a boost of confidence that I needed.” ~ ASC Participant 10/9/2021

Our staff, volunteers, and board of directors are world-class through and through. We are very proud of our mission-based mindset and the straight-up love and belief in what we do and provide. Despite the persistent challenges of these times, we have not only been able to retain our staff, but we have focused on further developing their skills to an exceptional level. As things begin to drift back to normal and become more predictable, we will be as ready as ever to do what we do best—get more and more people “out there.”

“I love the diversity of abilities we see. Every day is different and it keeps me engaged and wanting to learn more.” ~ ASC Instructor 10/6/2021

The ASC’s facilities and equipment are not only second to none, they have raised the bar high for many of our friends at other adaptive programs around the county. The Kelsey Wright Building has been a godsend during the pandemic and, in many ways, it is the one thing that has allowed us to continue to operate at a high level. A true game-changer. Our equipment is at the center of what we do and is often the key that unlocks the unrealized potential of our participants.

“The Adaptive Sports program at Crested Butte is the best in the Rockies. Everyone there is awesome, and the facilities are wonderful.” ~ ASC Participant 1/8/2022

All of the above is out of this world fantastic and it requires significant funding, which brings us back to the tradition of the CB Open, of having a great time for a great cause. The success of this event assures life-changing advocacy, adventure equity and opportunities of the highest quality for our well-deserving participants and their families.

With tons of gratitude and a huge thank you from everyone at the ASC,

Christopher J Read, CTRS
Program Director / Acting Executive Director
