Aspen Snowmass
Receives the Tommi Tyndall Award
by Gloria Raminha, Past President
and Nancy Ellis, Vice President -
North American Travel, FWSA
Aspen Snowmass was the 2022 recipient
of the Tommi Tyndall Award, presented
to an industry member that has made a distinguished
contribution to skiing. The award
was announced at the FWSA Convention in
Portland.
Aspen Snowmass was given this award
in recognition of its outstanding support of
the skiing public, the local community and
the Far West Ski Association. The resort has
been a devoted supporter of the Far West Ski
Association, having donated ski vacation
packages to the Annual Convention Silent
Auction for thirty-two years. In addition,
Aspen Snowmass has been a Convention
event sponsor for eleven years, with sponsorships
that have included the annual golf tournament,
beverages, Awards Banquet, and
musical entertainment.
Aspen Snowmass was the Safety Person
of the Year Sponsor for five years and
for the past six years has sponsored the Environment
Award. An early leader in the ski
industry in reducing their carbon footprint,
Aspen Snowmass proposed the Environment
Award for FWSA in 2015. The Environment
Award is designed to encourage good stewardship
of our environment. The resort desires
to inspire and reward creative efforts to
conserve and protect our environment.
Strong community, value-led action, and
lasting connections with both people and the
planet, are important to Aspen Snowmass.
The Environment Foundation was established
in 1997, and is unique in the ski industry.
Employee contributions are matched by
the Aspen Skiing Company Family Fund and
the Aspen Community Foundation. Additional
support is received from Lavazza,
their coffee partner.
A board of directors,
comprised of Aspen Skiing Company employees,
governs the foundation and decides which
projects to fund. More than 1,600 employees
contribute annually to the program, volunteering
to contribute through a payroll deduction
plan. With employees giving as little as one
dollar a week, the foundation has donated
more than $4 million to hundreds of projects
since the Foundation's inception. Through
the Environment Foundation, they are working
to protect habitat, ecosystems, and the biodiversity
that they depend upon.
This year, Aspen Snowmass hosted
FWSA with another successful North American
Ski Week, as they have many times in the
past. In addition, Aspen Snowmass has continuously
supported the production of the Far
West Skier's Guide through advertising support,
and donated prizes for club and council
events.
For their outstanding support of the skiing
public, the local community, the Far West
Ski Association, clubs and councils, and development
of leading programs in conserving and
protecting our environment, Aspen Snowmass
is certainly deserving of recognition as a recipient
of the Tommi Tyndall Award. ss
