Launch Party for the 2018 Audi Ajax Cup

The ski race and surrounding events of the Audi Ajax Cup take place during Christmas week each year to raise money for the oldest non-profit in the valley. The Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club is a club like no other. Its programs range from getting local kids on the mountain for the first time to sending young adults to the Olympics in Nordic, Alpine, free-skiing and snowboarding.

The launch party for this year’s cup took place December 27 at 7908 Supper Club. Each team competing in the December 30th race was able to bid on its “pro” team captain, while special prizes were auctioned off by event chairs Chris Davenport and Travis McLain. This year’s lineup of pros included Marco Sullivan, Dave Chodounsky and Olympic silver-medalist (and AVSC alum) Alex Ferreira.
