Aspen Peak - - Invited -

The Audi Ajax Cup, ben­e­fit­ting the Aspen Val­ley Ski & Snow­board Club, which cel­e­brated its 80th an­niver­sary, is Aspen’s sig­na­ture win­ter sports event. Skiers com­peted in teams in pro-style dual gi­ant slalom races on Lit­tle Nell, duk­ing it out for the famed Gor­such Cup. Each team was paired with a pro­fes­sional ski racer; this year’s pros in­cluded Daron Rahlves, AJ Kitt, and AVSC alums Alice McKen­nis, Katie Ryan, and Jake Za­man­sky, among oth­ers. Kristina Koznick led Team Hilde­brand—aka Team “Kick Some Wax”—to vic­tory.
