Aspen, Colorado is a great place to visit during the holidays. The natural beauty and the winter sports are the most obvious draw, but the people watching is WORLD CLASS. There is an extremely wide spectrum of tastes and styles being displayed on and off the slopes in Aspen. From fine furs to gore-tex, from the bling of exquisite jewelry to the utility of duct tape.

The Dennis Basso Freestyle is always a highlight event on the Aspen holiday social calendar. The guest-list reads like a who's who in the art world. Many freestylers are also the chief benefactors of the soon-to-be built Aspen Art Museum. Like peacocks displaying their plumes, the upscale freestyle crowd waited patiently for the photogs at the step and repeat. Glamour pix. The narcissism was palpable.
This year's event had a special glow. The newly remolded St Regis played host to glamorous array of guests. The hors d'oeuvre were succulent, the champagne was plentiful and the auction items were priceless. Models, hot chicks and rich guys were everywhere. Security was upgraded to red. AspenSpin got into the mix. We went FREESTYLE in ASPEN. We didn't bid on the $144,000 necklace but A. Party worked that room like a hard-packed bump run. Very carefully, at top speed and always moving forward. We got some sick pix, we hope you agree.
