Its the proverbial calm before the storm in Aspen. It's quiet, but not for long. Opening day is 11/27/08, Thanksgiving. We've been told by unnamed sources (Ski Co.) that its 100% on. So fire up the G-5 and get here for day one.
We've been publishing AspenSpin.com for more than 2 years, and thanks to the web our reach is worldwide. We've been in touch with the Swiss skiwear trend setters at KJUS. They wanted AspenSpin.com to get hip to their super-technical line of ski clothing for 2008/09. We're trying to be more stylie this season so we jumped on the KJUS bandwagon. Bode Miller wears it, Casey Puckett wears it and now the entire staff at AspenSpin.com will be sporting uncompromising skiwear from KJUS. In Aspen, KJUS is on the loose at Hamilton Sports and Gorsuch. Its not only fashionable, its highly functional too. No, we didn't win the loto, and we're not trust-a-farians----- we just decided to step up and outfit our people in the finest ski garb known to man. We recently rolled in to see Bill Miller @ Hamilton Sports, and we spotted a local celeb prepping for the season by walking the red carpet in this KJUS CIO down parka. Its puffy, its toasty and its haute. Click Hamilton, Gorsuch or Kjus to see what's up.
Also on the international front one of our blokes from London sent us these photos from the first ever London Freeze, the largest pre-season skiing event in the entire British Empire. The gnarly kicker shown below was constructed specifically for the London Freeze and then packed with man-made snow so all the Euro-rippers could get off. Photos: Hitting Kickers.
