Basically, April is Local's month in Aspen. Most of the tourists have bolted town...but Lord knows it just keeps snowing. We've had some pretty sick pow days this spring, and the guys from Aspen Weather told everyone that it's gonna keep dumping. Click for pix: ASPEN BOUNCE
We checked out some Local action; The Wheeler Opera House hosted Climb to Glory...a fascinating documentary film about the 10th Mountain Division, America's skiing soldiers. In 1942 more than 14,000 men were stationed at Camp Hale (near Vail) to train for mountainous warfare in WWII. That training paid off for the USA helping the Allied Forces to win WWII securing a life of freedom for all of us. Over 60 ski areas in the U.S. can trace their roots to 10th Mountain warriors. One 10th mountain guy said "you can play golf or tennis...but skiing is a lifestyle". Click to learn more about CLIMB to GLORY.
Aspen Weather threw a bash at Sky Hotel to celebrate their 1000 th subscriber. Everyone was partying like a hurricane, especially Corey and Ryan.
Later that night D.J. Folami and Berkel Beats headlined the Belly Up, Aspen. All the dub-steppers were bouncing like Mo-Fo's. Plus it was Berkel's dirty thirty...so you know it was the shiz-nit.
The 13th annual Bonnie's Party went off like an avi bomb. It was a multi-generational affair that again went the distance and had to be closed down by ski patrol.
After all that skiing and partying my system shut down, but click the pix.
