Remembering Our Fallen Friends of Aspen

As much as we miss all of our Fallen Friends, the too many skiers and snowboarders who we have lost throughout the years, it really felt as though their presence was with us today as we hooted and hollered our way through the beautiful powder on Aspen Highlands.
