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!!!

How Nature Heals, A Story From #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at ...
