Some of the best skiers in the country are based in Colorado.
But, this year they're relying solely on donations because the normal government funding hasn't arrived.
The team has amassed 16 world championship medals, and another 9 from the Paralympics.
The Aspen Valley Ski Club adaptive program is where our country's best come to train.
But this year that's been hard.
A grant from the federal government and then is distributed through the U.S. Olympic Committee to nearly 100 clubs like this, still hasn't come in.
Most years AVSC gets half a million dollars for the adaptive program.
As of now, donations will only carry the program through mid-December.
The AVCS program has a mix of military veterans and civilians.
The hope is a long-term funding source will come through.
But for now the adaptive program is solely based on donations.
