Video Series - Clubhouse Characters: Mariel Gorsuch

September 11, 2019

Meet Mariel.
Alpine skiing is an individual sport - it's you against the clock. It's up to you to get yourself in shape, take care of your equipment, and execute your own plan technically and tactically to ski the fastest run from start to finish.

That said, your teammates can make all the difference in your experience and success on and off the hill.

Watch the video to visit AVSC's Stapleton Training Center at Aspen Highlands and hear what Mariel Gorsuch, AVSC alpine skier and now University of Denver Pioneer, has to say about what she's learned from ski racing with AVSC and the relationships she’s built along the way.

Clubhouse Characters: About the Video Series
When it comes to Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club, you've seen the numbers: 2,300 kids. $1.8M annually in scholarships and subsidies. 82 years. These are all things we're immensely proud of. 
But who is AVSC? What does a day in the life of an AVSC athlete look like? Why do our athletes and coaches dedicate so much time and energy to sliding around on snow? Why does it matter?
We wanted to give you a look inside the athlete experience at AVSC so you can get a better sense of the people, the places, and the experiences that make this club what - and who - it is. We could tell you how our athletes develop passion and grit, how they're inspired to excel, and how they're contributing to our mountain culture... but we'd rather them show you.
