Letter: Buddies at Buttermilk

Little Buddy Samantha and I recently skied together for the third year in the annual Buddy Program Ski Day at Buttermilk. Our first year, we weren’t able to get off Panda Peak. But for the past two years, Samantha has received a scholarship to Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club, and what an improvement has been made. She can now make fluid parallel turns, fast and in control, in the trees and nonstop on Racer’s Edge. Thank you, Buddy Program, AVSC, Gorsuch for free equipment, Aspen Skiing Co. for lift tickets and Sean Gallager for fabulous instruction. What an amazing day! What an amazing community!
