CDA hits the Powderhorn slopes!

A great time for participants and volunteers alike as CDA spent a glorious sunny day on the slopes of Powderhorn Mountain Resort in early 2021.

    The weekend before Christmas 2020 we were honored to work with a veteran and his son, offering both of them ski lessons so they can share an experience together. Thanks to the Veterans Administration Adaptive Sports Grant and the Trutta Foundation Grant, we were able to provide an opportunity to promote health and healing not just for the veteran but for his family as well. Here’s a quick video of one of their shared runs.

    ReFUND CO: Details coming soon!

    What we do

    Our mission is to increase the independence, self-confidence, self-worth and education of people with disabilities through outdoor recreation.

    We provide independent participation, unique experiences and enriching opportunities for recreators, and volunteers alike. Our programs are like no other... because our PEOPLE are like no other.
