VAIL, Colo. – April XX, 2014 – When the world’s eyes turn to the Vail Valley for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, the premier real estate company in the area, will help ensure that the view is golden.


“We are proud to be one of a select few local companies that are official sponsors of the event,” said Jim Flaum, President and Managing Broker of SSF. “We realize that hosting the FIS World Ski Championships is a significant event for the Vail Valley and we are proud to support our community.”


As an official sponsor of the Championships, Slifer Smith & Frampton is continuing a long-standing tradition of supporting the community through sponsorships of events, monetary and in-kind donations and countless hours of volunteer work. By serving as an official sponsor for the event, SSF will be able to host receptions for the community as well as host the Official 2015 Donor Party.


Founded in 1962, Slifer Smith & Frampton has long been an integral part of bringing events to the area and making Vail and Beaver Creek what is it today. Supporting and participating in historic events like the 2015 World Championships is fundamental to the fabric of the company.


“We know how important it is to bring these types of events to the Valley and we know, from experience, that giving back to the community is only going to make individual businesses and the Valley as a whole more successful,” said Harry Frampton. “This is a once-in-30-years opportunity—they don’t come around that often. It’s important to us to not only support but be an integral part of the event.”


As the sole real estate sponsor of the World Championships, Slifer Smith & Frampton will be aligned with world-class brands like Audi, which is appropriate when considering the level of service and luxury that SSF provides. However, Flaum was quick to point out that SSF, though not a global franchise, has an international clientele that has seen double-digit growth in years following the previous two World Alpine Ski Championships.


“We started in 1962 with Vail Mountain and have grown with resort and the town,” said Flaum. “We know the valley and specialize in the Vail Valley. You go to Audi to buy a car; you come to SSF to buy real estate in the Valley.”
