Celebrating Bob Beattie an Aspen Legend

Celebrating Bob Beattie an Aspen Legend

One of the greatest things about being Aspen’s local blogger since 2009, and raising children in this valley, is that I am able to be in the core of our community. Yesterday was one of the days where I dove in. With many Aspen generations present, from newborns to grand-parents, we celebrated the life of Aspen legend and co-founder of the Alpine Skiing World Cub, Bob Beattie,at the Aspen Highland’s Alehouse with an AVSC Rail Jam & GS Ski Races, and Giveaways.

Bob Beattie Ski Legend

I actually met my husband when he was working for “Beats” back in 1995 with Bill Madsen. He was fresh off the boat from Denver, and I … having already lived here for five years and was thinking of moving to Pacific Heights in San Fran for a boyfriend of whom I had met at the top of the bowl … had just moved in for the kill. At the time though, I was working in film production for another incredible long-time local legend, Dede Brinkman. Dede was the owner of Aspen Productions and the film-lord of our town, along with; Ziska Childs, Tami Solondz, Jesse Vare, Paula Troobnik, Jim & Liz Stryker, Wingers, the Carter family; Dick, Claudette, Chase and Carter, and so many others.  It was an amazing time back then in 1995. And to think what fun they all were having 20-40 years prior. We used to brag about our Après-Ski; the Tippler, Paragon, Andrès, The Little Nell, The Red Onion, The Slope. To all reunite at events like yesterday at the alehouse to celebrate Beats and the multi-generations of skiers and snowboarders, was a beautiful thing.

Beats was also head coach of the U.S. Ski Team from 1961 to 1969 and skiing promoter and commentator for ABC Sports and ESPN. He lived in Woody Creek since 1970 and passed away April 1 at the age 85.

The acupuncture point between the eyebrows (third eye) is called Yintang and known to aid in several symptoms, most popularly the Yintang has a very powerful action of calming the mind and because of this action is almost commonly used in the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and agitation. Some who have been treated with this point say that its like a stress relief button, their whole body sink into a deep relaxation and they feel peaceful and without worry.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Follow them if you feel like you're in need of a little stress reliever.... here is a little tip - the Yintang point can also be stimulated using acupressure if you are in need of a little self care. Use the pads of your fingers to gently apply pressure, adding in a few circular motions if you feel like. Take a few deep breaths and relax your face.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
