Our team at Charles Cunniffe Architects has had the great opportunity to work with Challenge Aspen to design their 40-acre Wilderness Ranch outside Aspen, Colorado. The vision for Wilderness Ranch from concept to reality is to design and develop a state-of-the-art wilderness experience for those with disabilities and their families. The Wilderness Ranch will accommodate year round cultural and recreational life experiences for individuals who have physical or mental disabilities. Life-experiences will take place through utilizing advanced technologies, barrier-free accommodations and unlimited access to the wilderness.
Our vision begins with those who are dedicated to the task of accepting nothing but the best for themselves and others. We see the purpose of the Wilderness Ranch’s birth and growth is to insure that those with disabilities, young and old from all walks of life, have an experience that will enhance their well being. This will be accomplished through the many activities provided at the Wilderness Ranch. From the most taxing for those with strong athletic abilities wishing to push their limits, to those that will enjoy the tranquil wilderness and wish to be alone with their thoughts, Wilderness Ranch will have something for everyone. The facility will be on the cutting edge of technology, accommodating all facets of individual disabilities in a setting that is among the most beautiful in the world: the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado.
