Thanks for another great season @skisantafe! Our program wouldn't be possible without Ski Santa Fe's amazing support year after year. Thanks also to all the athletes and volunteers who joined ASPNM on the slopes this year - we appreciate you!
Last week we got to enjoy spring skiing AND rock climbing - talk about a good week! Whether they're scaling the walls of Stone Age Climbing Gym or conquering the slopes of Ski Santa Fe, our athletes are always reaching new heights!
It’s wonderful to see programs like this one. Thanks, The North Face, for creating an Athlete Development Program and encouraging adaptive athletes to apply!

POWWWW DAY!!!! ❄️❄️❄️
What a way to wrap up our 6-week program at Ski Santa Fe! So much fun was had today and every day of our ski program this year! Thanks so much to all the athletes and volunteers who have joined us so on the slopes - we’re looking forward to some more great sliding over the next month!
TGIF! This ski sums up our feelings perfectly after another great day at @skisantafe!
Read all about it! Check out this great article from The Santa Fe New Mexican featuring ASPNM athlete Taylor, who's been skiing with us for 20+ years! We appreciate all the athletes and volunteers who remain committed to our program year after year - here's to many more!
Adaptive athlete makes a long-distance commitment to skiing in Santa Fe Taylor Kuhn travels from Phoenix on winter weekends to take lessons with Adaptive Sports Program New Mexico.
We are heartbroken to share the news that our dear friend, Andrew Casados, passed away recently after a long battle with liver disease. Andrew volunteered with the ASPNM ski program for 22 years. Throughout those years, Andrew could always be counted on to be one of the first to arrive on the mountain, excited to share his love of skiing with ASPNM athletes and his fellow volunteers. Andrew always had a warm smile for everyone, and often shared how blessed he felt to be on the mountain amongst friends. We hope everyone will take a moment on the slopes to think of Andrew and appreciate his many contributions to ASPNM. He will be dearly missed by the ASPNM family, and we are wishing his family peace and comfort during this difficult time. A celebration of Andrew's life will be held at a later date. To view Andrew's obituary and/or leave condolences for the family, please visit: https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/abqjournal/name/andrew-casados-obituary?id=33144086

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend on the mountain. There’s nothing like some fresh snow to make us point our boards downhill! We’re rolling full speed ahead with our six week program and already looking forward to more fun next week!

We hope everyone has a safe and healthy New Year! We're looking forward to lots more snow and sliding in 2022! ❄️❄️❄️
