Schedule announced for community ski and ride days

Contact: Kathy Chandler-Henry, Eagle County Commissioner, 970-390-3104,

Dec. 9, 2019 – Local leaders including the Eagle County Commissioners are inviting skiers and riders to join them for some runs on selected Fridays this season following a series of successful ski outings in years past. The gatherings are intended to facilitate a casual back-and-forth among community members beyond the confines of formal meetings.

The schedule for the 2019-20 winter season begins with a ski/ride outing on Friday, Dec. 13. Participants are asked to gather at the base of Gondola One in Vail Village at 10 a.m.. 

Originally organized by former Vail Councilman Greg Moffet and Eagle County Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry, the outings are a way to connect local leaders with people who are passionate about the outdoors. 

No RSVPs are needed to take part in ski and ride days. Participants simply need to assume responsibility for their own equipment, lift ticket and lunch. An intermediate ability level is advised. 

Moffet and Chandler-Henry say 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. 

Additional ski days are planned for Jan. 10, Feb. 21, March 20 and April 10. Times and locations for those days will be announced later in the season.
