Dear Esteemed Media Representatives,

On behalf of Aspen Snowmass, we welcome you to the 2017 Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals. The town, the community, the Aspen Skiing Company and the World Cup Finals Organizing Committee are thrilled to be hosting this exciting event and we look forward to having esteemed members of the media here to cover the action and enjoy all that our town and mountains have to offer.

Aspen Snowmass has always strived for excellence whether in business, quality, craftsmanship, guest service or athletic achievement. From hosting the first World Championships outside of Europe in 1950 to being an original stop on the World Cup circuit upon its inception, the town and the community have always placed an emphasis on giving up-and-coming as well as elite athletes the opportunity to shine in unprecedented and historic moments.

The 2017 Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals to be held Mar. 15-19 on Aspen Mountain’s famed and iconic slopes gives our community yet another opportunity to uphold and celebrate the highest level of athletic achievement.

We are beyond thrilled to be welcoming the world into our community and are incredibly honored to be hosting such a high-caliber athletic event that pays tribute to our past and continues our future.

We look forward to having you in Aspen for five days of riveting ski racing.

Kindest Regards,
