Sari-Rae Lucas (née Gough) passed away in her sleep on July 15, 2020. Sari was born in Baltimore, MD, and grew up in Kingston, NY, and Frederick, MD. Sari attended Fredrick High and Maryland’s Frostburg State University, studying education before moving to Vail, Colorado, in 1990.

Sari co-founded Vail’s Wheel Base bike shop with her husband, Jay, in 1993, followed by Ski Base in 1995—businesses that are still serving the Vail Valley to this day. Sari was a big promotor of youth cycling and a founding member of Eagle County BMX, where she was playfully known as “BMX Barbie.” Putting smiles on kids’ faces through BMX riding was one of Sari’s greatest joys in life. She is beloved by her friends, and her laugh and joyful sense of humor are already missed.

Sari is survived by her sons, Halsey and Nash, and their father, Jay; her brothers, Robert, Thad, and Joel; her sister, Xania; and her parents, Anthony Gough and Toby Edelman. Services will be held on Friday, July 31, at 3:30 p.m. MDT at the Eagle Pool & Ice Rink’s BMX lot (1700 Bull Pasture Rd., Eagle, CO, 81631). In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you kindly send any donations in Sari’s name to the Mind Springs Foundation (MindSpringsFoundation.org).

Jay,
We will pray for the sweet memories to overwhelm the hard time you, Halsey and Nash are enduring. Sari was such an amazing, strong and vibrant women. We remember her volunteering in the classroom at Vail Childcare, and loving on our boys. Coming into the shop, she always had a smile that we know is already dearly missed. Love to you and your family.

Sari was a nice lady. I had a very good conversation with her at one of our car parking events at Avon for 4th of July. It was always nice to see her at one of our meetings.
