Welcome to the Official Website of Steve Baskis

Blind Veteran, Adventurer and Speaker

Blind soldier Steve Baskis rock climbing at Camp Hale, Colorado.During military operations Steve Baskis lost his vision in May of 2008 while serving with The U.S. Army.  Pushing far and beyond his dark adversity, Steve has challenged and shattered people’s perception of blindness. In 2009, Steve began his blind endeavor by climbing with the first U.S., Canada and Mexico blind team to the top of the 8th tallest peak in North America. In every year since that unfortunate day in May of 2008, Steve has ascended to new heights and developed a love and passion for competitive sports and outdoor recreation. Moving forward, Steve is excited to inspire and raise awareness through adventure and exploration.
