The 2nd annual Clay Soper Memorial Race is coming up on January 14 & 15, 2017 in Waterville Valley. The race honors the memory and skiing passion of Clay Soper who tragically passed away in 2015 at the age of 19.
Proceeds from the race and related events support the Clay Soper Memorial Fund. The fund seeks to educate youth about Clay’s death and how to avoid such a tragic accident, as well as promote his passion of connecting youth from different cultures through his love of skiing and the outdoors.
There’s an excellent article about Clay and the memorial fund in the Winchester Wicked Local.
