Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance (PPORA) is a collaborative of outdoor businesses, nonprofits, government entities, and individuals who recognize the value of our region’s natural and recreation assets to our community both as an economic driver and for our health and well-being and the strength found in working together. PPORA’s mission is to strengthen the outdoor recreation industry for the Pikes Peak region through leadership and collaboration.

Led by a Board and Advisory Council consisting of outdoor industry and community leaders, including founding partners: Colorado Springs Chamber and EDC and Visit Colorado Springs , the organization works to make the Pikes Peak region known as THE place for outdoor recreation.

We are looking for key stakeholders to help shape the future of outdoor recreation in the Pikes Peak region. When leaders invest in outdoor recreation, research shows that it can reduce crime rates, improve educational outcomes, and lower health care costs—all of which leads to a better community and quality of life.
