Vail Has the Best Ski Club in the United States
When it comes to things to do in the Vail Valley, skiing is obviously the first thing which comes to mind. As it should be, given how Vail has the best rated ski club in the United States! That’s right, Vail Valley’s own Ski & Snowboard Club has been rated the Ski Club of the Year.
This honor by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association comes on top of their highly rated free-style program. A program in which athletes such as Freeskier Cole Pates credits the great vibe for helping push him and his fellow athletes to become better at their sport.
Not only did the club take the overall Club of the Year, they also took individual top honors in such areas as snowboarding, freestyle and alpine skiing. Additionally Elijah Teter, a resident from Avon, won Coach-of-the-Year in snowboarding.
The award was presented at the Snowboard Association Congress 2014 Chairman’s Awards Dinner which was held on May 16th in Park City Utah. During the award ceremony, the club was lauded for its being able to win in so many diverse categories.
