Sebastian Diaz / Sebastian Diaz Photography Gordon Lusk: Safety Person of the Year by Mike Sanford Vice-President of Public Affairs, FWSA The 2013 Safety Person of Year winner is Gordon Lusk of the Mountain High Ski Club of the Northwest Ski Club Council. Gordon is a long time expert skier. He is the president of the PACRAT Race League and has been involved many years with safety in racing. His efforts have been extensive with supervising course set-up, course starters, and crew. He has presented course safety information and techniques to club members and has written articles on this. Gordon has also coached high school and junior racers and promoted the FWRA Scholarship program to these kids. The FWSA believes that safety is an important component in snowsports. We recognize that the ski resorts do an extraordinary job of minimizing hazards. Ultimately, safety is based on individual responsibility and behavior. The FWSA Safety Person of the Year Program is sponsored by Aspen Skiing Company with lodging provided by The Gant & Crestwood Resort Condominiums Aspen/Snowmass has partnered with the FWSA for over a decade in recognizing the individual who has done the most to improve safety-consciousness. This fine award shows the Aspen/Snowmass commitment to promoting safety, and we would like to thank Mary Manning of Aspen/Snowmass for running this program for all these years. The winner receives a six-day vacation for two from Aspen Skiing Company, including lift tickets for all four mountains (Ajax, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass), six days of rentals and a half-day group lesson for two, round trip air and seven nights lodging provided by The Crestwood Condominiums and The Gant. We encourage each ski club to promote this fine award by nominating individuals who have contributed to snow safety through on slope activities, presentations, articles, etc. Details may be found on the www.fwsa.org website.
