Telluride Adaptive Sports Program celebrates new location

IMGP0774 Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP) has moved into its new space in the Capella complex in the Mountain Village. To celebrate its new location, TASP will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, December 29. The facility will be open to the public from 3:30-5:30 pm, with appetizers and beverages.

After years of tight quarters, TASP is enjoying some breathing room. There are separate spaces for clients, instructors and staff, with cubbies for the clients and lockers and cubbies for the instructors. In addition, the location right on the Meadows Run means that riders can access the snow right out the door. No more hefting equipment 100 yards out to Lift 4, or hiking students up the hill to reach the Meadows.  


IMGP0776 TASP program manager Tim McGough spoke with TIO about the advantages of the new space: "It's great to have the room. On December 5 we had a lot going on, including clinics and a Special Olympics family day. There were as many as 80 people and we managed. That couldn't have happened in our old location. Being right on the snow means instructors can come in to warm up cold students or get a cup of hot chocolate." McGough also said the program is a bit ahead of last year in terms of clients served. 

IMGP0778 Come on out to see the new facility on Tuesday afternoon. As is the case with most non-profits, donations are the lifeblood of program. Please consider TASP in your planning for year-end giving.
