Aspen is cool. There's always something happening here. The town is gearing up for the Christmas rush...which is coming soon, get ready. We finally got a mini-POW-day today and AspenSpin enacted the 3 inch rule...our entire staff gets the day off to ski. The Aspen Ski Co. called it 6 inches...aaaahh we'll give it to 'em. Everybody in town was thrilled to see a few freshies.
The pace in Aspen is fast. STEIN ERICKSEN vadled into Aspen to celebrate his 84th Birthday. Hosted by Todd Shaver and the ASPEN BUSINESS LUNCHEON, Stein drew a crowd of more than 250 to his party. AspenSpin is saying it, STEIN ERICKSEN is the most influential skier of all-time. Sun Valley, Aspen, SugarBush, Boyne Mountain, Park City and now Deer Valley all owe a large debt of gratitude to Stein Ericksen. About 40 of Stein's former colleagues were in the crowd and showed off their Norwegian sweaters. Hearing his stories and meeting Stein are Hall of Fame moments.
