Thanx for community support

Dear Editor:

On behalf of Aspen Skiing Co. I’d like to offer a huge thank-you to everyone in this amazing valley who helped pull off the 2012 Winter X Games.

While ESPN brings significant resources to town to help steer the process, scores of local residents play significant roles in hosting and providing an enjoyable, safe experience on site at Buttermilk and throughout Aspen/Snowmass. This event has become the biggest annual winter sports event on the planet over the course of its 11-year stay in Aspen, and it wouldn’t be possible without the collaborative efforts and continued support of our local community.

Everyone’s hard work paid off for Buttermilk’s 100,000-plus weekend guests and far beyond, as Aspen/Snowmass was on display to millions of viewers from all over the world, and it sure looked like a sunny, snow-covered, beautiful and vibrant place to visit!
