She has worked at ASA as a volunteer, an intern, a staff instructor and as the program director. She is a commercial raft guide in both Colorado and Utah, a swift water rescue technician, has her wilderness first responder certification and is a Leave No Trace Trainer. When she is not at work she can be found making snow angels, playing in the mountains, chasing her dogs or tubing the river.

She is a commercial raft guide in both Colorado and Utah, a swiftwater rescue technician and has her wilderness first responder certification.

Klancy started as a winter volunteer in 2015 and joined the ASA staff full-time the following spring. She is a commercial raft guide in Colorado and has her Wilderness First Responder Certification. She loves to ski, snowboard, hike, fish, play in the river, watch birds, giggle, and use her dog as a pillow.
Molly Hahn-Floyd – Program Assistant


Molly has worked with ASA since the beginning of 2014. As a recent Durango transplant, you'll spot her frolicking in the high country when she's not behind her fabulous standing desk at work.
Lee Hagar – Office Manager


Lee Hagar began her duties as Office Manager for ASA in March 2008. Her work experience includes a variety of positions where she managed purchasing, scheduling, bookkeeping and catering projects. She is an avid skier and snowshoer and during the warm months can be found rafting and kayaking.
Judy Abercrombie – Bookkeeper


Judy took on the bookkeeping at ASA in December 2007. She does bookkeeping for many small clients and individuals, as well as several other non-profits in town. While not a skier, she volunteers for our DSSC event, handling all the financials and helping with registration. When not working, Judy enjoys hiking, camping and traveling.
Karen Esser – Events Coordinator


Karen joined ASA to get passes for skiing like everyone else–that was 14 years ago. Her skiing ended years ago with a torn ACL. Now she volunteers just because she loves seeing all types of people out enjoying the natural beauty that we see all around us. She has helped on the Dave Spencer Ski Classic for most of the years that it has been around. In 2008, she was asked to be the Event Coordinator. As it seemed like a good fit, she was hooked! She does a great job talking to the businesses and people around town to gather support for our events. She says ASA is loved in Durango! Karen also manages the Edgemont Picnic Grounds and offers her services as a Personal Chef.
