What a Ruckus!

Dear Editor:

Wow! Thank you to all who participated in the latest “Ruckus at the Ranch,” dedicated as a fundraiser for Tim Brown of Snowmass Ski Patrol. The overwhelming community support made this event possible and generated a sizable donation. Proceeds were donated, along with raffle and door-donations.

I would like to thank all of the attendees, as the Ruckus event is only as good as its crowd (and, of course, the costumes). There is no doubt that people’s love of Tim Brown and desire to show their support had a major part to do with the record attendance. Thank you for everyone’s door-donation and to so many who went above and beyond.

Thank you, Snowmass Ski Patrol, for your widespread attendance and embracing this event with stunning mustaches in honor of Tim Brown.

I would also like to thank those who donated raffle prizes including: a two-night stay at The Aspen Square, a bounty of Aspen Highlands Ski Patrol gear, Poc Goggles, My Life T-shirts, two tours with T-Lazy-7 Snowmobiling, a one-night stay at the Aspen Meadows, and the list goes on. Thank you for your generosity.

Local favorite Dan Sheridan donated his musical talent, while several T-Lazy-7 staff members also donated their time and night’s tips.

To say that Tim Brown and his parents were touched by the show of support is an understatement. They were blown away!

Thank you to this wonderful community.

Besha Deane

Vail Resorts has received notice of violation and a cease and desist order in the wake of a spill, which qualifies as a “discharge of pollutants,” last year from part of the Vail Mountain snowmaking system that ultimately resulted in a fish kill in Gore Creek.
