The Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club was founded in 1937 by a group of passionate skiers who wanted to spread the sport to the local community. Eighty years later, as the valley's oldest and largest youth non-profit, AVSC has taught generations of local children the very sports that revitalized the Aspen/Snowmass area. Through AVSC, children and teens experience the mountains in winter, build character, challenge themselves and make new friends.
The mission of the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club is to provide all youth in the greater Roaring Fork Valley the opportunity to develop as athletes and as people through winter sports.
We believe in opportunity, excellence, and our core values:
- Opportunity - All children growing up here should have the chance to ski or snowboard.
- Excellence - We have to help those who want to reach their full potential - they should not have to leave Aspen to find the training they need.
- Values - Through skiing and snowboarding we can instill the values of commitment, teamwork, and integrity in every participant.
AVSC envisions a thriving, healthy society nurtured by a balance between the individual, the community and the natural environment.
Interaction with our mountain environment elevates mind, body, and spirit.
The ongoing cycle of learning, understanding and teaching enriches the individual.
Challenge and pursuit of achievement are essential to personal growth.
AVSC is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
