Aspen’s ski spirit

Dear Editor:

This past weekend showed once again the great community spirit for ski racing in Aspen. Thanks to the Aspen Skiing Co. and the entire community for an outstanding job in producing the Aspen Winternational for the world’s best athletes as a part of the Audi FIS World Cup.

Aspen is a community that truly cares about youth. Not only is there support for the World Cup, but also for the future stars of the U.S. Ski Team with the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club. It’s gratifying to see the depth of that support in the Aspen community.

On behalf of our U.S. Ski Team athletes, I want to thank everyone in Aspen for your hospitality and hard work – and for fans filling the stands! It shows a great spirit of Olympism in helping our athletes who are Vancouver-bound this year.

Bill Marolt

president and CEO, U.S. Ski Team
