Just over a year ago, famed ski mountaineer and adventurer Ned Gillette was murdered in northern Pakistan. Now his widow, former Olympic downhiller Susie Patterson, and friends have created the Ned Gillette Adventure Grant to honor Ned’s inspirational, pioneering, and creative spirit. The one-time grant, presented by the American Alpine Club (AAC), will assist the funding of an American winter-mountaineering expedition. For application information, contact the AAC at 303-384-0110 or www.americanalpineclub.org.
