Preregister now for an extra raffle ticket!
Additional info: Walk for Wilko has been organized as a  benefit honoring our beloved friend Mark Wilkinson.  "Wilko" passed away suddenly in 2019 of natural causes.  

An Australian native, Wilko spent his summers in Sydney driving buses and coaching rugby.  He blessed us in the Roaring Fork Valley by returning every winter to lead and manage the snowboard instructor team at Buttermilk.  As a boss and leader his calm demeanor and thoughtfulness for each member of the team is what set him apart.  His impact and humanity reached out of the Aspen Ski Company realm and into the local community.  

The Walk for Wilko will honor his memory by providing a scholarship in his name for a deserving child at AVSC.  Wilko embraced the program for its mission of providing every child in the valley an opportunity to snowboard regardless of financial constraits,

Thanks much,
Diane Platek
