Welcome to CDA!  


We are humbled that our volunteers strive to making a difference. Their passion and energy are unparalleled, and we respect their spirit of volunteerism immensely. CDA is so very grateful to have such a devoted group of volunteers. Thank you for being so selfless and choosing to volunteer with for CDA!

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.


CDA offers a variety of Adaptive Outdoor Recreation through our 8 unique Programs:

  • Alpine Ski and Snowboard lessons
  • Team Powderhorn Adaptive Race Team
  • Cycling 
  • Adventure Camps
  • Camp Freedom
  • Team Ability Disabled Veteran Cycling 
  • River rafting experiences
  • Disabled Veteran Programs
    • Ski & Snowboard Lessons
    • Learn to Ride Clinics
    • Bike Rentals
    • Day River Trips
    • Overnight River Trips




Working as a CDA volunteer is physically and emotionally demanding.

Ski/Snowboard lessons require moderate to steep slopes, riding ski lifts and assisting students utilizing specialized equipment. 

All of our programs may involve physical exertion, heavy lifting, pulling and pushing and an abundance of patience may be necessary.

Anticipating and responding to accidents and other emergencies requires an individual to maintain his or her composure and think clearly in urgent situations. 

If you have questions or require further information please arrange a time to discuss your situation with CDA program staff, contact the

CDA office email or (970) 257-1222
