To the Editor:

I want to congratulate the Strat ton Foundation and Stratton Mountain for an incredible event: The 24 Hours At Stratton race. The event was superbly organized, with roughly 70 teams skiing in some fashion for 24 straight hours. Live music, fireworks, lighted ski runs, sunrise on the mountain and enthusiasm were everywhere.

This event raised close to $300,000 that will directly benefit our community. In addition, the four teams from BBA had a ball, as did everyone else I talked to.

Congratulations, Stratton. See you next year!
