On behalf of the fifth-grade teachers and students at Sopris Elementary School in Glenwood Springs, I would like to thank Jim Ingram and the entire Snowmass Ski Patrol for providing every fifth-grade student and parent a day of skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing with complimentary lift tickets and lunch.
Jim and his fellow patrollers taught our kids about mountain awareness, the responsibility code, and avalanche safety. Avalanche dogs and handlers were also available for search demonstrations. The patrol staff was cheerful, courteous, and professional, and they effectively conveyed a message of mountain safety to our kids.
Thank you for supporting our families and allowing each class to have a safe and fun day on the mountain at Snowmass.
Principal, Sopris Elementary School
