Colorado Discover Ability has teamed-up with Adaptive Adventures (web site) to provide and promote adaptive water-skiing and wakeboarding opportunities in western Colorado.
Working with private lake owners, trained instructors and volunteers, as well as other adaptive recreation programs, Colorado Discover Ability provides the highest quality equipment, instruction, and experience. We focus on single and multi-day demos, camps, and clinics. Our events include individuals and groups of all sizes, both public and private, to help them understand and enjoy the sport of water-skiing.
Water-skiing and wakeboarding are popular forms of physical exercise, exhilaration, and social interaction practiced around the world. Adaptive water-ski equipment offers a unique opportunity for individuals with lower-mobility or other impairments to experience the joys and benefits of water sports. Spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, multiple sclerosis, intellectual disability, you-name-it, adaptive water-skiing enables outdoor recreation -- for everyone.
Because adaptive water-skiing is a relatively new and growing sport, it lacks exposure and availability around the country. In countless cities and towns around the country the freedom and physical benefits of water sports should be available to all individuals regardless of ability or disability. Creating water sports opportunities for individuals of all abilities and from all walks of life is what Colorado Discover Ability is all about, and your partnership with us will insure that we succeed in reaching our goal.
So come to waterski, wakeboard or just to watch this spectacular clinic. See you there!For more information send us an e-mail at
