Video Series - Clubhouse Characters: Spring Gulch Skiers
September 28, 2019
Welcome to Spring Gulch.
What's the best part about nordic skiing? Making jumps and friends! This episode of Clubhouse Characters, we visit Spring Gulch in Carbondale for a day with the Bill Koch Youth Ski League nordic skiers! Our Bill Koch Youth Ski League, which also operates out of the AVSC Clubhouse in Aspen, provides a fun after-school program for kids to learn how to nordic ski.
While we're busy working to coordinate transportation, provide opportunities, teach fundamentals, and instill values, the kids are focused on having fun and making friends... and we wouldn't have it any other 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.
