The Buddy Werner League celebrated its 40th year in Beaver Creek. BWL is very proud of being the largest volunteer program in the valley. Everyone involved with the BWL including coaches, are volunteers dedicated to providing a recreational ski program with an emphasis on racing. It serves all-mountain skiers to expert-level skiers. This past season, the BWL coached 250 skiers from second-eighth grade.

Mike Haselhorst, who has been involved with the BWL for the past 24 years, expresses his sincere appreciation to all the sponsors and volunteers that generously give of their time. Without all these special people, the BWL could not survive.
