Fantastic day for English in Action

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Aspen Skiing Co. and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies for providing a fantastic day on Aspen Mountain for our English in Action group of tutors and students on March 4.

English in Action is an organization that matches volunteer tutors with adult immigrants wanting to improve their English. Skico gave us free gondola rides, and ACES provided a snowshoe tour on the mountain. It was a glorious, sun-filled day for all.

There were 14 of us total, and we had a spectacular day. Many in the group had never been on Aspen Mountain or worn snowshoes before. Our ACES tour guide,s Howie and Alli, told us interesting facts we never knew about our beautiful Aspen Mountain and the wildlife that lives there. We laughed, played in the snow, soaked up the sunshine and got some good exercise together. We lunched up on the Sundeck and ended our day making new friends and grateful for this fantastic day.
