"Shannon is one of the best announcers we know of when it comes to live ski and snowboard competitions. She has announced numerous SSWSC events, ranging from junior competitions all the way up to FIS-level Alpine races. Her professionalism, preparation, and knowledge of the events which she is announcing make her our go-to announcer for winter sports events."

"Shannon Lukens - our prolific photographer and social media guru. For years Shannon has taken pictures on her own time and documented the events of MainStreet, then posting timely photos and posts on our Facebook page. It is hard to keep up with all of the social media we should be doing, but now that Shannon is in charge, we know it is getting done and done well."
Tracy Barnett, Executive Director, MainStreet Steamboat Springs
