Clay Soper

Clay was a passionate skier who spent his winters in Waterville Valley racing with the BBTS ski club.  Clay passed away at age 19.  His family and friends created the Clay Soper Memorial Fund to provide scholarships and programming built around Clay’s passions for connecting youth from different backgrounds combined with his love of skiing and the outdoors. The fund will seek to educate and support positive social youth development through Clay’s passions while also delivering a message about his death and how other kids can avoid such a tragic accident.

In hopes of creating a legacy for Clay that will help youth learn from his death and promote change, the fund is creating a documentary. View the short here: https://vimeo.com/160250751
