Jennifer Vanian of Glenwood Springs found Sunlight Mountain Resort’s buried treasure this year. It’s the third year she has found it.

The “Cookie Ladies” from the American Legion Auxiliary from Post No. 100 in Carbondale delivered 3,093 cookies on Friday, March 25, to the 25th annual National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass Village through April 1. The ladies baked and packaged their cookies for delivery. The project was started by JoEllen Maynard four years ago, and the ladies have baked with love each year to make this such a success. Midge Wampler and Tracey Gates have always baked more than 1,000 cookies each year.

Sixteen members of the Aspen Yacht Club (AYC) braved the winter weather on Feb. 26 to ski in to the Yacht Club on the shore of Ruedi Reservoir. This “Ski-In” was the first AYC calendar event of the 2011 sailing season, and kicks off a full season (May through October) of weekend club racing, the Aspen Open Regatta in July, and other AYC events. The AYC members usually make the two-mile trip from the Ruedi government dock to the Aspen Yacht Club bay, sailing on a strong breeze, over the water … not across 12 feet of frozen ice. Using snowmobiles, skis and snowshoes, these hearty sailors crossed the frozen ice and snowdrifts, always listening for the sound of cracking ice, and being aware that Ruedi Reservoir’s waters are more than 400 feet deep. All the members made it safely to the AYC clubhouse, where they enjoyed a roaring fire and a winter picnic lunch. A quick inspection of the club’s facilities and stored sailboats showed that all had weathered well under eight feet of accumulated snow, and that the spring sailing season could not be far away.
