January 8, 2024 – Local leaders, including the Eagle County Commissioners, are inviting residents to join them for skiing and riding this season following a series of successful outings in years past. The gatherings are intended to facilitate casual conversations among community members outside the structure of formal meetings.
Participants are asked to gather on Friday, January 12 at Gondola One in Vail Village at 10:00 a.m. There’s also an option to meet the group for lunch at 12:30 p.m. that day. Lunch will be at El Segundo, 223 Gore Creek Dr., Vail.
Originally organized in 2014, the outings are a way to connect local leaders with people who are passionate about the outdoors. The networking and outreach events have resulted in a broad representation of the community, bonded by an appreciation of what drew many of us here.
No RSVPs are needed to take part in ski and ride days. Participants need to assume responsibility for their own equipment, lift ticket, and lunch. An intermediate ability level is advised.
Additional ski days are planned for February 16 at Beaver Creek and March 22 at Snowmass. Details for those dates will be announced later in the season.
