World Cup Fever

World Cup Finals are in town, and it’s a very exciting time to be in Aspen!

Alpine ski racing’s most important event, the FIS World Cup Finals are the last set of races on the World Cup circuit for the season, crowning the champion in five disciplines plus the overall men’s and women’s champions. Only 25 racers in each discipline qualify for the finals, so you’re watching the best of the best competing over five days in downhill, super G, giant slalom, slalom, and the nation’s team event.

It’s Happening — New Development in Snowmass

The ink now dry on the deed, East West Partners and Aspen Skiing Company are well down the line with their plans for the completion of the next phase of Base Village in Snowmass.

By summer, big cranes will be visible from throughout the Village; and, by fall, we’ll see all the buildings going vertical. Certainly, by next ski season, our visitors will be well aware that this long-delayed development is back on track. Continue reading

In a recent Aspen Times column, the Aspen Princess, Alison Margo, wrote about the spirit of Aspen, and how it’s still going strong. She found Aspen’s soul in Aspen Hall of Fame honorees, whom she interviews for videos commemorating their lives and contributions to the community. We were intrigued and wanted to know more: What exactly is it about these people who came to Aspen in the 1960s and ’70s, and still live here? How do they embody the spirit of Aspen, and how does that impact the community? Continue reading
