The Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club (AVSC) serves the children of the Roaring Fork Valley with discounted skiing lessons and training for children with a passion for skiing and boarding. One of it's biggest annual fundraisers, the Audi Ajax Cup, will take place on Aspen Mountain on Monday December 30. Hosted by Antonio Banderas and co-chaired by renowned skiers Chris Davenport and Casey Puckett, the Ajax Cup and its after party, is a holiday-season favorite event. For tickets and more information, visit www.teamavsc.org/ajaxcup.
Never let it be said there isn't a lot to do around here! In the just the next three days we have an abundance of events from which to choose. The 12 Days of Aspen continue, JAS Cafe Downstairs presents Stacey Kent, Burt Bachrach will rock the Wheeler tonight, the Crystal Palace Revue lights up the Wheeler stage on Christmas night, and the Academy Screenings begins Monday, December 23. Hopefully you can find some time to ski, too!
