Don’t forget ‘Pooh Bear’

Nancy R. Peterson

Dear Editor:Your article about women in the Ski Company was very much appreciated by me and my fellow instructors here at the Bear Den in Snowmass.One woman you overlooked is Sue Way, director of children’s programs for the Aspen Skiing Co. Sue, aka Pooh Bear, is a legend here in the preschool division in Snowmass, as well as Buttermilk and the Highlands. Locals and visitors from around the world know that their children will be in “good hands” with Sue Way at the helm of the ship.Sue treats every child with unconditional love and respect. It is the “whole” family that is nurtured during their stay at ski school. The summer camp is a dream for the quality of care, fun and adventure.Sue’s employees look up to her for guidance, and she shows that by her ownexample. There is little or no turnover with instructors. She is a true gift to mankind and I am blessed to be working with her here at the Bear Den.Nancy R. PetersonAspen Skiing Co.
