Skico looks after its own

Dear Editor:

The family and friends of Ivan Petkov wish to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Aspen Skiing Co. for its generous support of Ivan’s memorial service Sunday.

Ivan was a longtime ski instructor, and this shows that Skico really takes care of its own. More than 200 people took the gondola up Aspen Mountain for the memorial gratis, and the Sundeck served as a meeting place after the memorial.

Extra special thanks to the Aspen Mountain staff and the staff at the Sundeck for making it a very special event for our friend Ivan. Anyone wishing to see an online slideshow of Ivan, the service and his life can contact for the link.

We are so fortunate to have a family-owned ski company that really cares about our community.

Mark Joseph and Viviana Petkov
