Faulhaber Takes Highest Honor at AVSC Awards
Hanna Faulhaber understands the role the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club has played in making her into one of the country’s best young halfpipe skiers. That’s why it meant so much when the club recognized her accomplishments like it did earlier this week.
“It’s pretty big. My whole life I’ve been skiing with AVSC,” Hanna said. “They’ve helped me out so much, especially the past few years. I’ve been progressing so much and my coaches have been helping me along the way. It’s been meaningful.”
Faulhaber, 15, was presented with the Andy Mill Award on Tuesday by AVSC, the highest individual honor the club awards annually. This year was a bit different, however, as the awards banquet went virtual amid the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of the usual in-person affair, AVSC posted a roughly 36-minute video online to announce the 2019-20 season award winners.
