Dear Friend of BOEC,
October brings with it the anticipation of changing seasons doesn’t it? The leaves have fallen from the Aspens and a refreshing chill fills the air. I’m sure that you, just like us here at BOEC, are excited about the coming winter season, and with it, the ability to get back out on the slopes or XC trails that we all cherish and love.
BOEC is planning for a busy winter season albeit a somewhat different one than we are all used to. To help us in our planning and preparation we have consulted healthcare professionals and industry leaders, are working closely with our partners at Breckenridge and Keystone Resorts, have spoken to participants, staff, volunteers and others to gauge interest and concerns and we are developing protocols and policies that will be in place in time to offer safe access to adaptive ski and ride programs this winter.
Our goal, as always, is to ensure the safety of our participants, staff, and volunteers during this upcoming winter season. With that said, we are eager to welcome back those who rely on BOEC for access to skiing and riding. Please check out the BOEC COVID-19 Response page on our website for more information about the policies and procedures we have put in place and how to make a reservation for a lesson this season.
We hope you enjoy this month’s issue of BOEC’s Inspirations as we share great stories of those who inspire us to do what we do every day. Please find an uplifting story of Nichole Lutz and Maddie Pipkins’ friendship, united and bolstered through giving to BOEC. We honor Barb and Todd Rankin of Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains who give of their time and resources to support the work we do every day. Also check out Agape Roaster’s Coffee or the Sheba La Beba Children’s book for more ways to give back to BOEC.
We are grateful and inspired by the many volunteers, donors, supporters and participants who are each contributing to our ability to make it through this challenging time. Thank you for sticking with us as we navigate this together. We look forward to seeing you this winter!
Stay safe and stay healthy,
