No Army behind AVSC

Dear Editor:An article in Wednesday’s issue of The Aspen Times might lead readers to conclude that the U.S. Army is going to sponsor the Aspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club. This is misleading and results from the fact that AVSC was not contacted before the article went to press.For the sake of clarification, the Army’s sponsorship of Ayla Angelo is entirely independent of AVSC. Ayla’s sponsorship has been worked out between the Angelo family and the Army. Moreover, while the Army has suggested that there may be ways for them to work with AVSC, nothing specific has been proposed. The suggestion is so recent and so nebulous that we at AVSC have yet to even discuss the potential advantages and disadvantages.AVSC appreciates the wonderful coverage and consideration we receive from The Aspen Times. Their failure to call us on this story is the single exception in years of otherwise outstanding service they have provided AVSC.Mark Coleexecutive directorAspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club
