by Colorado Snow Sensei on Jun.19, 2013, under General

Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) acknowledged outstanding industry professionals at its fourth annual Double Diamond Awards Reception yesterday evening. The ceremony marked the conclusion to a milestone 50th Annual Meeting for the Colorado ski industry’s trade association. The Double Diamond Awards are CSCUSA’s hallmark event that allows industry professionals to come together and honor snow maintenance professionals, athletes, instructors, patrollers and industry legends. This year’s honorees ranged from a 14 yr-old straight-A student to a United States Senator. Bestowing the honors upon the winners, and presenting alongside President and CEO of CSCUSA, Melanie Mills, was longtime Colorado ski icon Billy Kidd of Steamboat Springs. Kidd was the first male athlete to win a medal at the Olympics in downhill skiing. Plenty of other industry representatives were on hand at the History Colorado Center to celebrate the 2012-13 season, and witness the best in Colorado’s ski industry be acclaimed.
