WE ARE ADAPTIVE
Adaptive Action Sports was founded in 2005 by 3x Paralympic Medalist Amy Purdy and Daniel Gale to create opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities to get involved in action sports like skateboarding and snowboarding.
At the time there were limited resources for those living with a disability who wanted to participate in these types of sports. AAS was the first organization of its kind to focus on bringing action sports and events to the disabled community and it not only created an incredible “adaptive” action sport community but it created a movement!
Adaptive Action Sports was an integral part of getting snowboarding into the Paralympic Games for the first time and continues to train adaptive athletes to make the US Snowboarding Team as well as creating other recreational and wellness opportunities that encourage and promote a healthy and active quality of life.
Based in Copper Mountain, Colorado, our headquarters includes our world class ski and snowboard mountain, wellness, workout opportunities and an indoor skate bowl. Come join us!
