Closing Day Aspen Mountain 2018 - Aspen Real Life

Closing Day Aspen Mountain 2018

The closing of a mountain in a ski resort town is a day to all join together and celebrate the passing season, before we take off to get our adrenaline rush in the waves or on single track elsewhere for the off-season.

Yesterday was an awesome day that started off with Oysters and Tequila at Ajax Tavern, and ended, once again, with friends and family helping to recover my scattered gear from all over town. Actually, it didn’t really start off so awesome, and that’s why you may have seen me dancing on top of that table at Shlomo’s. I was making up for that skin I had to miss due to pesky disorganized teen boys responsible for my only having one boot in the car when I finally got to Tiehack, which then led to my getting to my belongings too late in the locker room. At least that was all that got locked up.

I wrote an entire story for all of you after getting dropped off, but couldn’t understand a word of it this morning, so I figured it best to forget my story, and show you everybody else’s.

Closing Day was such an awesome celebration of local life, a true testament of our positive temperaments up here and our ability to squeeze out a few drips of stories from a less than memorable snow season.

Now, time for a break before we hit it hard with summer tourism.

Tag yourselves!!!

It's amazing the treasures one finds when one slows down to take an old pup out for daily slow walks. Having been up in Aspen for 5 years, I forgot about this old Fairview Cemetery that Loki guided me to where I discovered Merino Fiou: Merino Bruno Fiou, AKA “Mr. Basalt”, born July 29, 1940 in Glenwood Springs and died March 6, 2011 at Valley View Hospital.This from the Aspen Times: A constant staple of the Town of Basalt, Merino was always on the search for a treasure that few of us cherished. He had a love of hats and was always seen wearing a different one. He walked many miles each day back and forth into town.Many local merchants of different stores knew him by name. Merino was very proud of his money jar that he accumulated by turning in his aluminum cans that he collected. Merino had many jobs throughout the years including trash pickup and working at Two Rivers Cafe washing dishes. He liked to help out wherever needed, even volunteering when they built the playground. Merino was very fond of River Days and loved to listen to the music in town. With a constant smile on his face, he was very friendly and never knew a stranger. Merino loved the annual yard sale at his house, looked forward to sifting through all the stuff, he found a treasure in things that other people threw out.Did anyone know Merino?#iseenya#mrbasalt#coolcemeteries ...
