ASA is combining the best of the Dave Spencer Classic for 2022! We are tentatively planning the 24th Dave Spencer Classic with both in-person and socially distanced components for you to support ASA. No matter which parts of the event you decide to participate in, we hope you will join us in fundraising to support the Adaptive Sports Association mission again this year.
Registration for the event is FREE but as always, fundraising is HIGHLY encouraged. Those individuals who raise/donate a minimum of $150 per person will receive an event swag bag, commemorative tee-shirt, and an entrance ticket to our apres ski mixer on Sunday, February 27th.
You can sign up as an individual, or as part of a team and remember dress to impress- costumes are highly encouraged. Awards will be given out for top fundraisers, best costumes, mountain rally winners, and more!
Mountain Town Rally
For Durango local event registrants, we will host a Mountain Town Rally with one stop around Durango for each day of the event. We will share a clue each morning leading to the location of the ASA stop that day. Each stop will be outdoors, and we’re asking you to socially distance and mask up while you’re there so everyone can participate! There will be a short activity to take a photo of to complete each stop. Event registrants can share them with us on social media, through email, or in a text.
Hint: Saturday’s stop will be at Purgatory Resort. Discounted Racer Tickets ($60) will be available for registered event attendees and can be picked up at our mountain office.
Ski/Snowboard Race Day at Purgatory Resort
Join ASA for runs on the NASTAR Course at Purgatory Resort. We’re excited to bring back race day. As usual the name of the game will be for individuals and teams to predict their time on the course as accurately as possible. Registrations and preparations will be primarily held outdoors for COVID safety and precautions. Registration will open at 9am in front of the Dave Spencer Center, and all race course runs need to be recorded by 1pm.
Join ASA for the Dave Spencer Classic Mixer!
We will be culminating the Dave Spencer Classic with a fun apres ski mixer at Riverbend Ranch starting at 3:30pm on Sunday, February 27th. There will be music, beer and wine, and a taco bar from Zia Taqueria. ASA will briefly present awards from the week and thank all of our event sponsors!
Admission is included for those who raise a minimum of $150, or you can add it on for $35 if you are registering as a free Dave Spencer Classic participant.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
How To Participate
Share a photo or video on social media with @adaptivesportsassociation of what you are doing for your Dave Spencer Classic Movement Challenge. Set a fundraising goal to go along with your Movement Challenge and share with your friends and family. Prizes will be given out at the Dave Spencer Classic Mixer.
Each morning, we'll email out a clue where our Mountain Town Rally stop is for the day. Once you find it, you can complete the small task and share your pictures or video with us! Make sure you are registered by Monday 02/21 to ensure you receive the clue for the first day. Prizes will be given out at the Dave Spencer Classic Mixer.
Start the day by checking in at Dave Spencer Classic Registration in front of the Dave Spencer Center, ASA's Mountain Office. You can pick up a lift ticket (purchase with your registration or the day of) and your race number. We'll have snow fencing and seating available outside.
The race isn't just about speed. Take as many practice runs as you'd like in the morning to nail down your time on the racecourse. Make your predictions after lunch and try to stay as consistent as possible! The racecourse will be open for practice runs from 9a-12p with the main event kicking off at 1p. Please make sure you and your team have completed your race run by 2:30p. Note: lunch will not be provided on Saturday.
Registration for the event is FREE, but fundraising is highly encouraged! Participants who raise at least $150 will receive a swag bag, event tee shirt, and entrance into the awards mixer. You can kick your fundraising efforts off by creating a fundraiser page and sharing it with your friends and family, or you can make a donation when registering. If you're worried about fundraising the $150, please register and let us know at email@example.com. We never want cost to prohibit your participation!
As always, we highly encourage costumes and team costumes at the Dave Spencer Classic. There will be an award for the best costume...
