PARK CITY, Utah – Ski and Snowboard Club Vail received the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s Club of the Year award. The ski and snowboard club was cited for its outstanding staff, with Executive Director Aldo Radamus, as well as Alpine Program Director Karen Lancaster Ghent, 2009 USSA Domestic Coach of the Year, and Head Coach Dan Stripp.
According to the USSA, the Vail club has set up a World Class venue for its athletes and was able provide early season training for the division, region and the National Team this past season. The club continues to set the bar high and challenge themselves to meet those high expectations, making everyone better around them.
“This recognition is a credit to the commitment of the 75 coaches, teachers and administrators, hundreds of volunteers, supporters and most of all the nearly 450 young men and women whose hard work and achievement in alpine, cross country, freeride, freestyle skiing and snowboarding has resulted in this great honor. We aspire to continue to challenge ourselves and earn our place alongside the many great programs that are part of USSA,” Radamus said.
