Mountain Mayhem: Audi Ajax Cup
Racers of all ages and experience levels suited up for the 10th edition of the Audi Ajax Cup on Monday, Dec. 30. Benefiting the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club (AVSC) and its 2,400-plus athletes, the annual competition featured head-to-head giant slalom races on the storied run of Little Nell at Aspen Mountain. At the top of the morning, 16 teams of six skiers each reported to race headquarters. The chilly temps didn’t keep the racers at bay nor the crowds away as all followed the heated competition into the afternoon. In the end, Team West End Hillbillies took home the coveted trophy, led by co-captains Jimmie Johnson and Adam Lewis and pro Alex Ferreira. They celebrated their win at the trophy presentation during the après-ski party held just a few blocks away at Scarlett’s. The silent auction, live auction, DJ set, dinner and drinks rounded out the evening.
