Aspen Camp for the Deaf installing new ropes course

SNOWMASS – The Aspen Camp for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing has teamed with Roaring Fork Leadership on the planning and installation of a new ropes course.

The school lost its ropes courses in a windstorm last spring. It approached Roaring Fork Leadership, which trains community leaders, for help. The organization provided a team from its 2012-13 class to assist in planning and installing a new low-ropes course. The new course will have a variety of challenging elements and possibly a cross-country ski track and fitness trail.

The organizations will hold a public open house Wednesday at the Aspen Camp at 4862 Snowmass Creek Road to display its plan. The open house will be from 6 to 8 p.m., with an informal presentation at 7 p.m.
