Solid local support

Dear Editor:

To the amazing people of the Roaring Fork Valley…

You have always been there for me through my career as a snowboarder ” from the very beginning competitions, through ACL surgery and being out for an entire season, from a silver at the Olympics to my Gretchen Bleiler Day parade. But never have I felt your love and support as I did on Friday night when I took my big fall. The huge roar of support (louder than the Olympics!) that I heard when I stood up was what put the smile on my face as I rode down the pipe.

It’s nice to know that I have all of you in my corner win, lose or fall!

Gretchen Bleiler
