Accommodations and Compensation 

Interns are provided housing as part of their compensation. They will live in a newly renovated and fully accessible building maintained and owned by the Adaptive Sports Center. Located in the town of Crested Butte, these accommodations are valued at $500 per month including utilities. Each with his/her own rooms, up to six interns live together for a full season. Terms of the lease are dictated by the Adaptive Sports Center and interns are asked to provide a refundable security deposit of $600 each, which will be held through the end of the season. It will only be deposited if charges are incurred.

Winter interns are provided with a season ski pass, valued at more than $600. Interns are required to perform their internship in its entirety. A clear driving record with no violations in the last three years is a must. Finally, interns working in the field need to have a current CPR/First Aid Certification.
