Dave Spencer Ski Classic

22nd Annual Dave Spencer Ski Classic

February 21st-23rd, 2020

Dave Spencer is right around the corner – get your fundraising going with the 2020 Fundraising Tool Kit!

Dave Spencer Ski Classic and ASA’s mission were featured in the Durango Herald in March 2014. Read the article on Regaining Freedom here!


The Dave Spencer Ski Classic is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Individuals with and without disabilities ski side-by-side during this week of fun as they hit the slopes to raise money and support our mission of making outdoor recreation accessible to everyone. Teams and individuals win prizes for everything from the best costumes to the most money raised and the biggest wipe out. It’s a weekend of snow-packed entertainment that embodies true community spirit.

It’s time to form your team for 2020! Grab your friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers to help us raise money to support the ASA mission. This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we so appreciate each of our teams for their registration fee and all the extra fundraising they do on behalf of ASA!

Teams should consist of 5 people for Saturday’s Race or 2-5 people for Sunday’s Mountain Rally. If you’d like to join but need more members or would like to be placed on a team, give us a call at (970)-259-0374 or email events@asadurango.com and we’re happy to help! Your online registration form will ask this too, so we’ll reach out if we have questions!

Dave Spencer Ski Classic is a great event to get plugged into ASA as a sponsor. Your business’ support of the Adaptive Sports Association’s programs helps us provide all the outdoor recreational experiences that our winter and summer programs have to offer, and most importantly, they allow us to never turn away a participant due to financial restrictions. ASA provided financial assistance for more than 70% of our participants this past year.

We would love to have you and your business in the ASA Family as a sponsor starting at the Dave Spencer Ski Classic this year in 2020! For more information, check out the following documents:
