Happy trails

Dear Editor:

Last Sunday was the 38th annual Silverboom nordic race in Snowmass. This was the final race in the 2010 Aspen Cup Nordic series. The Silverboom, the Owl Creek Chase and the entire nordic race series were a huge success this year. We would like to thank the many sponsors, including Ute Mountaineer and the Aspen and Snowmass Nordic Centers for their invaluable support of these race events.

We would also like to thank the Aspen Nordic Council, especially Austin Weiss and his team of groomers for pristinely maintaining our world-class trail system throughout Aspen and Snowmass. In addition, we are very grateful to the wonderful volunteers who braved the cold mornings to help make these races possible. Lastly, and most importantly, we would like to recognize and express our gratitude to Mike Trecker. He is the heart of this series. His passion and enthusiasm for nordic skiing keeps the Aspen Cup alive. Thank you, Trecker! And thank you to all who helped to make this a fantastic race season.

These events involve skiers of all ages and all levels of skill. The group spirit is very encouraging with great camaraderie. We feel very fortunate to be involved, and we hope to attract many new skiers for next season. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails!

Dave and Cara Borchers
