Since the early 1980s, the Adaptive Sports Association of Durango has provided inspiration to children and adults with disabilities. With nearly 200 active volunteers and specialized, state-of-the-art equipment, ASA has helped to enrich the lives of thousands through snow sports and recreational outdoor therapy. Heres a look at ASAs annual fund-raiser, The Dave Spencer Ski Classic, hitting the slopes of Durango Mountain Resort last weekend.
