Vail Daily letter: Thanks for support

The Seibert family and Tony himself would like to say “thank you” to everyone who helped make the first annual Tony Pardee ski down and celebration a huge success!

Special thanks go out to the Alpenrose, Armada, Arrowhead Alpine Club, Buzz’s, Fuzziwigs, Kind Design, Moe’s BBQ, K2, Pazzo’s, Pret, Pit Viper sunglasses, 10th Mountain Whiskey and Distillery, Zac Layman and B1Nary Arts, and the Westin for all their great donations for the raffle. Also thank you to Gorsuch’s for their extremely generous donation, The Vail Ale House, Tanner Bardin and Eminence Ensemble, Vail Resorts, and of course the awesome Vail Ski Patrol! The love and support from our community during this past year has kept us all going and keeping Tony’s spirit alive. The contributions have allowed us to establish the Tony Seibert Memorial Fund, which we will be awarding scholarships for avalanche awareness, all geared towards Eagle County and our local youth.

Just knowing that Tony had created such a lasting impression on our town, had so many friends that he loved, and they loved him in return, helps to ease the pain and is comforting to us all. While we miss him and his giant smile and we love him so much that words cannot describe, his spirit is alive in all who loved him! So remember, he is with each and every one of you, every day, and he would want everyone to “Live your dream now” and to “Pardee on”! We love you all!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Teri, Anna, Lizzie, Petey, Pete Jr. and Tony’s amazing spirit
