The Shining Stars held their annual Aspen Winter Games at Buttermilk Mountain. The Stars, 51 kids from 13 States, all who battle Cancer and other life threatening diseases got to kick it---Aspen Style. In addition to their daily skiing and boarding (on the same hill that hosts ESPN's X-Games), the Stars got to party like rock stars all over Aspen. We got into it @ Shining Stars HQ, The Inn @ Aspen, the Disco Inferno @ The Elks Club and the Awards Banquet @ St. Regis.

Watching these tough, talented athletes embrace mountain sports (some of them for the first time) was amazing. Some of the kids were very shy at first, but they gained confidence, camaraderie and great life experiences while in Aspen. It was a "week of good news" for kids whose typical agenda includes battling terrible diseases.
