Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club brought back what is perhaps the most exciting nonprofit benefit in the Roaring Fork Valley, the 5th annual Audi Ajax Cup! Teams – comprised of AVSC athletes, current and former ski racing pros, and donors – competed head-to-head in a dual slalom race on Little Nell run on Aspen Mountain on Tuesday, Dec. 30. Onlookers and athletes were treated to the “hottest après party in Aspen” at the base with delectable bites and drinks from Zeno Aspen. The party continued at the St. Regis Aspen where AVSC raised funds for its programs and scholarships before the dance floor heated up with DJ Dylan.
