Skico gives AVSC a lift

Dear Editor:

What a way to start off our 75th anniversary season! All of us at Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club would like to thank the Aspen Skiing Co. for its generosity in opening Aspen Mountain the day before its official Thanksgiving opening to raise much-needed funds for our organization.

Thanks to them and the numerous eager skiers and riders who joined us last Wednesday, AVSC raised $17,500 to support our programs and scholarships to children from low-income families.

We live in an amazing place and are privileged to have such a great partner as the Aspen Skiing Co. To all of you who joined us on that bluebird day, we sincerely appreciate your support and hope you had a great time out there. We certainly did!

Thanks again, and here’s to another outstanding winter season.

Mark A. Cole

executive director,

Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club
