Kudos for SOS

Dustin Powell

Our residents come from various backgrounds. However, regardless of their history I am convinced that the SOS program is a very significant program for them to interact with.

Many of my youth have low-self-confidence and an inability to fill their recreational time with constructive activities. SOS helps provide a solution to both of those issues by teaching them recreational skills and character traits they can use through their lives.

I was constantly impressed by the level of professionalism of the staff, both in the SOS program and from the Breckenridge Ski School. The orderliness and smooth operation of the mountain, even in times of high traffic, is to be commended.

I would like to encourage Vail Resorts to continue to support the SOS program in the future. I am sure my residents have benefited both in learning a skill and in practicing traits SOS instills. I am confident that Vail Resorts’ support of SOS makes possible an experience that would otherwise be impossible for many high-risk youth.
