Several years ago The Club charged itself with becoming the best winter sports club in the world, and today I think I can say that Aldo’s and his capable team’s admirable efforts are bringing the vision into focus and producing tangible results towards the achievement of this worthwhile objective. I think Aldo and all those involved with and supportive of Ski & Snowboard Club Vail should take pride in the considerable accomplishments of the last decade, and take humble pleasure in the efforts other programs are currently making to emulate ours. - Glenn Davis, Chairman of the Board

State of the Club Dear SSCV Membership, Supporters and Interested Parties: As you will read in the specific program reports that follow, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV) and our young men and women in the 5 sport programs of Alpine, Nordic, Freestyle, Freeski and Snowboard had an unprecedented year of achievements. From our youngest “Future Stars” competing in the Steadman Clinic Vail Cup, to our alumni and current athletes competing in World Cups and X-Games, 2012 was a year of both personal bests and program milestones. Our academic partnerships with Eagle County Schools (ECS) and Vail Mountain School (VMS) are growing in breadth and depth ensuring that our young athletes are able to pursue their athletic dreams without compromising their academic goals. Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy continued it’s growth to 141 students this past year and the enrollment cap of 161 for 2013 has been met and a waiting list established. In 5 short years, VSSA lists among it’s alumni 7 members of the US Ski and Snowboard Teams and students who have been accepted at competitive Universities and Colleges including Denver University, Dartmouth College, California Polytechnic University, Harvard, University of Colorado, University of Vermont, Middlebury and many others. A foodservice program was successfully established at VSSA serving nutritious and delicious lunches prepared by SSCV’s Chef and her staff and volunteers. As the first, and so far only, publicly funded snow sports academy in North America, VSSA provides accessibility for a broad socio-economic population to pursue their dreams in skiing and snowboarding. The athletic programs in all our sports continue to grow. Approximately half of our over 500 participants are enrolled in Alpine with the balance divided evenly between Nordic, Freestyle, Freeski and Snowboard. Eagle County residents make up nearly 75% of the membership with 20% living in the front range and the remaining 5% coming from other parts of the state, country and overseas. Approximately 2/3 of our membership is 14 years and younger. With growth in enrollment comes increased demands on fundraising efforts. Program fees only cover about 70% of the annual budget. SSCV’s Annual Campaign bridges the “gap” between the fee revenue and the actual expenses of delivering the programs. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation by all families in our annual campaign at a level of personal significance. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and the hard work of our volunteer and event committees, SSCV has for the 10th year in a row, finished the year in good financial health. Scholarship awards continue to increase from year to year providing opportunity for athletes who might otherwise be limited from participating in SSCV’s programs. I’m most proud that annually 100% of SSCV coaches, administrators and staff donate to the Scholarship Fund supporting the dreams of the young athletes we serve. With the support of many generous Scholarship Fund donors, nearly 20% of the SSCV membership receive assistance annually. A successful $3M Capital Campaign was completed resulting in the new, state of the art, Golden Peak snowmaking system. Whether training in the race lanes, on the mogul course, skiing the Nordic loop or jumping into SSCV’s airbag, all our sports have benefitted from this important initiative which has also attracted teams from all over the world to come as our guests to Vail during November. This past year has also seen the completion of the Nordic trails at Maloit Park and a successful fundraising effort among the Nordic community of SSCV to purchase a brand new Nordic snowcat. Also at the Academy, several state of the art stone grinders and an edge grinder were acquired to offer ski and snowboard tuning services to our members. Currently under construction is an Acrobatic Center which will include several trampolines, a foam pit and small tumbling area for the benefit of our Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski athletes. Planning is underway and the $1M fundraising effort for the Human Performance and Wellness Center is nearing completion. A very generous challenge match has been established in the amount of $250K by an anonymous donor towards this effort. Once met, SSCV is poised to have planning completed and the stage set for construction on this much needed conditioning and health education facility. In the next phase a Residence Center is proposed to house both student / athletes and staff completing a campus including academic, athletic, administrative and residential facilities in the beautiful natural environment of Maloit Park. Efforts continue in the planned re-development of the SSCV Clubhouse at Golden Peak. An important first step was achieved this year with the approval of a change of zoning allowing the development of 1 to 2 deluxe residential units to fund the construction of a new, larger, much needed clubhouse. When the second story was added to our existing building in 1986, there were just over 100 participants in SSCV programs. Today, nearly 100 staff call the clubhouse home together with over 500 kids. The recent announcement that the Burton US Snowboard Open will take place on Golden Peak for the next 5 years presents an exciting opportunity to guarantee a season long 22’ pipe for our Freeski and Snowboard athletes. A 22’ pipe is both the competition standard for high level halfpipe competitions and provides improved safety for all users as a result of the longer transition from the vertical wall to the flat bottom. A successful fundraising effort to purchase a new pipe cutter will allow us to partner with Vail Resorts who are committed to the significant additional annual cost of building and maintaining a 22’ pipe for the entire season. While there are many exciting plans underway, it is the joy, passion and commitment with which our kids pursue their dreams that validates what we do in pursuing our mission “To provide youth the opportunity for character growth and excellence through athletics”. Thank you all for being part of, supporting and believing in our kids and what we do at Ski & Snowboard Club Vail to serve them. Respectfully yours,

Aldo Radamus, Executive Director

It was a very successful season for our riders and coaches. Not only did we see amazing athletic growth from all of our athletes, we also saw growth as people and members of our community. This coming season will see many of our athletes placed in a good position to compete for spots on various Olympic teams, our kids looking for another year of progression and our coaching staff continuing to coach “The Stoke” of snowboarding. This, combined with improved training facilities both on and off the snow, including our Acrobatic Center at VSSA, will see our program have all the tools it needs for continued success. We are excited to see what the next season will bring!

VSSA Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy (VSSA) was founded in the fall of 2007 as a partnership between the Eagle County School District (ECSD) and Ski & Snowboard Club Vail. VSSA facilitates the world-class, winter sports program provided by SSCV in a fully accredited and certified public school setting. The goal of VSSA is to challenge its student-athletes with a rigorous academic curriculum while supporting a world-class training and competition schedule. VSSA is specifically tailored to provide for the education of its oftentimes far-flung student body as the majority of the student-athletes compete on a national or international level, which entails extensive travel during the school year. For the 2011-2012 school year there were 73 students in grades 5-8 and 76 students in grades 9-12.

Future Stars The Future Star program progressively develops the ski and snowboard skills of children ages 6-9 in a safe, fun and challenging environment on Vail Mountain. On-snow technical training and participation in the Steadman Clinic Vail Cup events are the basis of this program. The goal at this age is to open the possibilities by exposing the athletes to four different ski disciplines (Alpine, Freeski, Freestyle, and Nordic) that SSCV offers. A strong fundamental skill base allows children to develop their personal potential and specialize in their future area of interests. There is no better way for kids to learn about their potential, limits, friendships, sportsmanship while learning a lifelong pastime. Future Stars athletes acquire the very best skiing and riding skills along the way as well as an introduction to safety, etiquette and competition arena protocols.

2011-2012 Special Events i.

SWAP October 28 – October 30, 2011

ii. Early Season Training November 2 – December 9, 2011

The 42nd Annual Ski & Snowboard SWAP was held October 28 – 30, 2011 at the Dobson Ice Arena in Vail. The SWAP is a long-standing community tradition and for many locals it kick starts their excitment for the upcoming ski season. The sale is known to be the year’s best deals on new and used ski and snowboard equipment and with products ranging from everything from alpine, snowboard, telemark and nordic equipment to winter clothing and accessories such as helmets, gloves and goggles. SSCV staffed the entire event with over 300 volunteers from our membership. The SWAP is SSCV’s longest standing fundraiser and all proceeds from the event benefit the club’s Annual Campaign.

In three years of operation, Vail has become known world wide as being the best location for training during the month of November. Over 60 visiting groups including national teams from Austria, Czech Republic, Canada, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Norway, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, France, and the U.S. plus many other, clubs, academies, and colleges from across the U.S. trained on Golden Peak’s race hill, mogul lane and air bag lane for over 5 weeks before most ski areas were even open. Not only is the early season training a unique opportunity for SSCV athletes to practice alongside the world’s best, but most importantly, SSCV athletes are able to get their pre-season training at home without missing school and at no additional expense for travel. In addition, the exposure of Vail around the world benefits the Vail community, its visitors, and SSCV athletes at what is usually a slow time for ski areas.

iii. Celebration of Winter November 5, 2011

The Annual Celebration of Winter gala is SSCV’s largest and most important fundraising event each year benefitting the club’s Annual Campaign. Held at Larkspur restaurant at the base of Vail’s Golden Peak, the evening kicked off with a cocktail party for all SSCV members. Guests were greeted with a glass of Korbel champagne and mingled while bidding on their favorite silent auction items. SSCV alumni and current US Ski & Snowboard Team members were in attendance to celebrate the beginning of the season. The cocktail party concluded with a fashion show featuring products from SSCV’s official suppliers, Descente/DNA and Under Armour. Following the cocktail party, SSCV’s Leadership Council, donors who contribute gifts of $1500 or more to the Annual Campaign, were celebrated during an appreciation dinner. A delicious meal was prepared by Larkspur and a handful of large ticket items were auctioned between courses.

iv. Steadman Clinic Vail Cup January 22, February 12, March 11 and March 18, 2012

In 1963, the newly formed Ski Club Vail hosted its first Rocky Mountain Ski Association race, and the Vail Cup was born. More than 40 years later, the Steadman Clinic Vail Cup was renewed as an exciting and challenging series of events encompassing all programs offered by SSCV free to all participants. The 2012 Steadman Clinic Series featured 4 events in January, February and March. Participants age 3 – 14 on skis and snowboards competed in a combination of alpine racing, half pipe, slopestyle, big air, moguls, and nordic skiing. Competitions were held on Vail Mountain and at the Vail Nordic Center. Thanks to the generous support of Vail Cup sponsors, the series was free and open to children under the age of 15. With over 1000 starts during the series, the Steadman Clinic Vail Cup was a popular event for many of the Vail Valley’s youth and an excellent introduction to snowsport competitions.


v. East West Partners Town Series December 2011- March 2012

For nearly 50 years SSCV has been hosting events at both a world class and citizens level. The longest running and most popular has been the local Town Series. With the addition of nordic racing events a few years ago, the East West Partners Town Series offered a race avenue for snowsports enthusiasts of all ages. The 2011-2012 series took place over 11 weeks from December – March. Participants as young as 5 and as seasoned as 60+ years old participated in this year’s races. The East West Partners Town Series had two event types – nordic racing and gate racing for skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers. Freestyle, classic, sprint and relay nordic races for competitors of all ages were held at Golden Peak, the Vail Nordic center and Maloit Park. Town Series events at Golden Peak for competitors age 21 and older included slalom, giant slalom, and super giant slalom races. The series cumulated in crowing local Town Champions in all disciplines.

vi. MacDermid NorAm Cup February 2-7, 2012

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s NorAm Series is an international level ski race circuit for competitors striving to obtain World Cup status. With World Cup starts on the line, this series attracts some of the top skiers from North America and Europe. As a premier international ski race, spectators had a chance to watch the next generation of World Champions as many of the NorAm competitors are members of national teams and current World Cup athletes. SSCV was proud to host 2 giant slaloms and 2 slaloms on Golden Peak for approximately 140 men and 100 women Feb. 2-7, 2012. This was the most important Alpine race held on Vail Mountain since the 1999 World Championships. Thanks to the event’s generous title sponsor, MacDermid, $20,000 in prize money was awarded to the top three men and women in the 8 events.

vii. USSA Marriott J3 Alpine Junior Championships March 3-10, 2012

viii. Snowshoe Scavenger Hunt March 1, 2012

ix. Downhill Dash March 3, 2012

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association’s Marriott Junior Championships are showcase events for junior aged athletes in alpine, cross country, freestyle, nordic combined and ski jumping. They are often the launching pad for future U.S. Ski Team stars. Organized by local USSA clubs, the Marriott Junior Championships, now in their 35th season, are recognized by the USSA and the U.S. Olympic Committee. SSCV hosted the 2012 series for J3 alpine racers from the Rocky/Central region. 165 athletes age 13-14 competed in slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and dowhnill races in Vail the week of March 3-10, 2012. Life long memories were created as SSCV played the perfect host. From an athlete bowling party at Bol to superior race conditions, the event and race organizing committees executed the event flawlessly. The 2013 J3 Junior Championships will return to the Vail Valley for a second consecutive season in March. The 2nd Annual Snowshoe Scavenger Hunt was held on March 1st at the Broken Arrow and the Arrowhead ski area, part of Beaver Creek resort. This exciting event is a scholarship fundraiser featuring a silent auction and chili dinner at the conclusion of the “hunt”. Teams of 4 went orienteering by snowshoe around Arrowhead resort picking up clues and racing to the subsequent checkpoints. Champions were crowned at the end of the event with winners representing adventurous and more adventurous categories. The Downhill Dash is a ski/ride-a-thon benefitting SSCV’s Scholarship Fund. The 3rd annual Downhill Dash grew substantially in 2012 and with the addition of electronic pledge solicitation, athletes were able to take their fundraising viral. In addition to being a fundraiser, on March 3rd athletes participated in a Vertical Challenge where they competed to ski or ride the most amount of vertical feet in one day.

General Fund Operating Expenses

The Gap In order to keep our programs affordable, SSCV offers discounted program fees. Program fees only cover 65 - 75% of the actual cost of providing athletic programs, creating a deficit (gap) of nearly $800,000 that must be raised annually to run SSCV.




$517,339 $2,222,760

Payroll and Expenses

The shortfall in our operating budget is raised though the Annual Campaign by individual and corporate donations, fundraising events, and hosting competitions.
