Frisco police take third in ski championship

It wasn’t like when the Frisco Police Department would routinely win the Colorado Police State Skiing Championships, but Frisco officers Glenn Johnson, Jim Walsh and Jerry Stinnett were happy with third at last week’s annual event.

About 32 teams from across the state raced in a dual-format giant slalom at Vail’s Golden Peak on Friday. The Frisco trio matched its third-place finish from 2001. Last year Frisco was fifth. The officers from Snowmass Village won the title.

“We got pretty pumped about this race,” Johnson said. “We skied really well.”

The Frisco officers used to be members of the now-

defunct National Police Ski Team. It was then that they reeled off a string of three straight Colorado Police State Ski championships in the late 1980s. Now, the state championships are the only race they do all year.
