Sugarbush Resort Remembers Freestyle Skier Ryan Hawks

03/02/2011


Warren, VT (March 2, 2011)-- The Sugarbush Resort community is saddened to learn of the death of freestyle skier Ryan Hawks. Hawks skied with Sugarbush's Diamond Dogs Freestyle Team for four years during his high school years. Kevin Wry, Diamond Dogs Team founder, remembers Ryan fondly. 'We called him 'Ryan Red', because there were several Ryans in the program, and he was the one who always wore the red jacket. Ryan was the guy who showed up early to take runs before the program started, and skied until the lifts closed. He had an incredible enthusiasm for the sport. He'll be sorely missed.'Hawks's father, Peter Hawks, is an outback guide for Sugarbush.  The Sugarbush community extends its deepest sympathies to the Hawks family. This Saturday's Castlerock Extreme Bump Competition will be dedicated to Hawks.
