Antonio Banderas-hosted Ajax Cup Comes to Aspen Mountain


Antonio Banderas and kids at the Ajax Cup 2012 apres-ski party.

Ski for the kids is the cause this Monday, Dec. 30, when the Audi Ajax Cup returns to Aspen Mountain. The annual ski race is comprised of amateur teams all racing on Aspen’s Little Nell run to raise money for the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club, the valley’s local nonprofit which teaches kids to learn winter sports. Hosted by Antonio Banderas, the single-day ski race pits racers against each other as they descend right into the base of Aspen Mountain, with prime viewing opportunities at Zeno and the Ajax Tavern. Packages include cocktails and appetizers, as well as access to the launch and apres-ski parties.
