Supporting a rich history

Dear Editor:

This past Saturday Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club welcomed the Aspen community to our annual gala to honor the club’s 72nd anniversary. It was a festive and memorable evening. I have the privilege and honor to be the president of AVSC.

On behalf of the board of directors and the team at AVSC, I want to take the time to express our most sincere gratitude and appreciation for the outpouring of support, enthusiasm and generosity that was present for our event. It was a sold-out evening that was spirited and celebrated the possibility and brilliance of sport.

For the nearly 2,000 athletes and participants enrolled in our programs this year, it is the club’s mission to provide access to all of the Aspen valley youth who desire to participate and experience the challenges of winter sports and the mountain environment, while at the same time welcoming athletes of all disciplines to participate and discover their own personal excellence and best. The club has a rich history, and it is from this tradition that we have built and emerged as an organization that prides itself on the citizen-athlete. We strive to develop participants and athletes with emphases on our core values. These mountains are the place we call home.

We thank the community for making our gala a most successful event. The proceeds of our evening will make possible the club’s commitment to provide $700,000 in awarded scholarships and program subsidies for our participants this year. AVSC is committed to the youth of this valley, and we wish you all a fun-filled safe season on the slopes. See you on the mountain!

Jeffrey Gorsuch

president, AVSC
