Video Series - Clubhouse Characters featuring Hailey Swirbul
August 28, 2019
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.
Our first profile is on Hailey Swirbul, AVSC Nordic alumna, current USST B-team athlete, and all-around awesome human. You may recall her Aspen Times column, Dear 10-year-old-me, in which she shares all that she's learned throughout her career thus far. We hope you enjoy getting to know Hailey a bit better.
Stay tuned for more Clubhouse Character features in the coming weeks as we gear up for another great winter at AVSC!
