Thanks for Winternational support
December 11, 2006
Dear Editor:On behalf of Aspen Skiing Co. and everyone involved in the recent World Cup races, I would like to offer my sincere thanks to the entire community for its support of this great event. As usual, Aspen/Snowmass showed its spectacular colors by rolling out the welcome mat to our guests from all over the globe. The feedback on the race and surrounding festivities was outstanding from the racers, the FIS, USSA and attendees.We could never pull this off without the generosity of the lodging community, all of our community sponsors, the restaurants, our unbelievable volunteer crews, course workers and committee heads, the city of Aspen, etc. … the list goes on and on … right down to all of you that came out to cheer on the racers, take in the gondola plaza activities, the concert and the fireworks. To top it off, the outpouring of support during the scramble for potential additional races was extraordinary.Once again our community was at its best when the spotlight was shining upon us.John RigneyAspen Skiing Co.
