You want extreme? Weve got it here in Aspen but it does not begin, nor does it end, with the 10thanniversary of the Winter X Games taking place here, January 27-30th.
When you live close to nature, chances are that youre going to get out in it, some more than others, such as revered local celebrities Neil Beidleman and Chris Davenport. Neil has done firsts on Denali and climbed on K2, Makalu and Everest and Chris has skied all 54 of Colorados 14,000-foot peaks within one year.
The Little Nell Hotel personifies my belief that Aspen should be known not for its glitz and glamor but for its elegant and sporty visitors. Not that the glitz and glamor doesnt exist, it just doesnt prevail.
One only has to enjoy a stay at Aspens top, five star, ski-in, ski-out hotel, as I did with my family this past Friday over Winterskol, to catch a glimpse of what Im talking about.
My title is “blogger” but I consider myself a writer and feeling the need to connect with other writers, I contacted Mike Rogge, Associate Editor of Powder Magazine for an interview.
Mike gives a witty account of what it is like to work for one of the world’s most popular skier magazines.
As locals, wanting to experience the plethora of new restaurants that open up in the valley, we tend to forget to revisit our old time loves. With a bar that breeds romance and a staff that welcomes you as if you were their own family, I am glad that I went back and am here to remind all of you that we must not forget that Pinons brings the quality to the table that we all search for.
One of the many perks of being a blogger for the Roaring Fork Valley is that I get invited to hang out with the other local bloggers to experience the best of what is out there so that I may share it with my readers.
Over the holidays, we went up for ski-in sushi at Nest in the luxurious Viceroy Snowmass and I discovered a new favorite.
