Travis Greene cuts down a run at Steamboat Ski Area on Wednesday during the fifth annual All Mountain Adaptive Ski Camp. Greene was a Marine in Iraq when he lost his leg in an explosion. He had little trouble with the freshly groomed slopes of Mount Werner but struggled at first in the deep powder of Buffalo Pass as campers spent the day with Steamboat Powdercats. He figured that out, too, and in the future hopes to develop adaptive sports opportunities himself.

Adaptive Adventures, which host the camp with Access Anything and Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports, is celebrating its 10th year.
