Adaptive Sports Center-Kelsey Wright Building

Crested Butte, CO


Connecting through experience of place.

After more than 30 years of helping individuals with disabilities explore, enjoy, and conquer outdoor activities, the Adaptive Sports Center has outgrown their facilities and is in need of additional space to continue to grow their outdoor programs. In August of 2016, the Adaptive Sports Center purchased the Outpost Building in the Crested Butte Mountain Range Base Area with the intention of replacing the existing structure with an approximate 25,000 SF state-of-the-art Kelsey Wright Building which will showcase its winter and summer on-mountain programs.


Ever curious. Ever learning. Ever improving.

RTA was chosen in June 2017 to lead the design effort of the new Kelsey Wright Building. The new building will allow the staff and guests to more efficiently and effectively participate in the outdoor programs. Additional storage for equipment, a fit-up area, gathering spaces, ski-in ski-out accessibility, indoor rock climbing, a kitchen and dining area, and bedrooms to house guests and their families will effectively double the amount of guests the Adaptive Sports Center will be able to host on site.


Purposeful, engaging solutions.

The Kelsey Wright Building broke ground in the spring of 2018 and will officially open in the spring of 2019.
