Locals Ski Program Registration

Winter 2021/22









At Challenge Aspen, we believe that access, participation and community integration are the keys to healing and establishing rewarding lives for those with disabilities. We welcome and encourage any individuals with a physical and/or cognitive disability to enroll in our recreational and competition Locals Program, regardless of gender or age. All programs take place on Snowmass Mountain. Participants must be able to ski independently, but will be paired one-on-one, with a trained buddy throughout the season.


Challenge Aspen participates in Special Olympics (competition dates are not confirmed for 2021/22) and will train those interested in racing. We recognize that not everyone wants to race, but might rather enjoy just being on the mountain enjoying their experience without competition in mind. Either way, we’re here to make it happen!



There have been some changes to the program due to COVID-19, please see below for our updated protocols for this winter season.
