Sarah “Sippi” Sipe poses for a photo with Gladys Thomas, mother of Lance and Terry Thomas. Gladys celebrated her 93rd birthday in July and has lived in Big Sky with her sons and her daughter-in-law, Mary Goodson, for more than 20 years. Gladys is currently at the Madison Valley Manor recovering from a broken arm as a result of a fall. “She's my favorite person in Big Sky, she's a total rock star, and I love her dearly!!” Sipe wrote to the Lookout in a request to use this image.

59716 Volunteer: Sara "Sippi" Sipe

I asked Sarah “Sippi” Sipe to sit down with me, delay the comfort of her home and cuddles with her cat –Tom Newberry – and to share stories of her abundant volunteer work. We spoke at end of day in the conference room of her accounting office when most people were gone – the faintest tapping of keys on one lonely computer could be heard.

Beth Cox stands like a sentry, guarding the timing gate and little bar ski racers push through to begin each timed run. It’s the start of the Lone Peak Speed Series super-G and she works with others on the volunteer race crew to sync the timing system so everything proceeds with the precision Cox expects.
