Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame
Renie Gorsuch – One of top racers on the U.S. Women’s Ski Team, Gorsuch made her Winter Olympics debut at Squaw Valley, Calif., in 1960. While racing for the team, she met her future husband, David Gorsuch, and the two formed their own incredible team that forever changed the face and fashion of Colorado skiing. Starting a small ski retail store that would go on to define the industry, Renie Gorsuch worked tirelessly to create a sense of fashion for the sport. Bringing mountain elegance and a refined fashion sense to the slopes was no easy task in the formative days of the sport, but Gorsuch LTD soon became a standard for the ski industry with stores throughout the state of Colorado. Under Renie Gorsuch’s direction and using the grandeur of the Colorado Rockies as a visual backdrop, the store catalogue introduced millions of people around the nation to the beauty of Colorado and mountain living. She embraced both the sport of skiing and the mountain lifestyle and sold countless people on the beauty of Colorado’s ski country.
