Every March for the past 50+ years a large group of hearty souls descend on Aspen for Spring skiing and Aspen Party Week. The core group of about 200 revelers from all over the country visit Aspen to take advantage of the bluebird skies and the POW POW. Led by the Crawford Brothers from California, The Beradino Brothers and Mr. and Mrs Gooch from the East Coast and Al Gross from Vegas this group has evolved into the hardest partying, good timingest, mate swappingest group of 60 to 80 year olds you will ever see.

Aspen Party Week's line-up is so chock full of events on and off the mountain that even AspenSpin can't keep up. The Tamale Party, The Cheeseburger Party, The Mad Hatter Party, The Snowmass Picnic, The Lemondrop Party, The Sneak-a-Peak Party ( paying homage to the infamous Sneaker Ball) The Wine Party, The After-Wine Party and more. Every day is a different soiree and by the end of the week....there are a lot of bruised livers. The traveling 200 don't ski as much as they used to (many just forgo the shredding) but they party just as hard. They do love their grog.
This year Aspen kicked off it's annual core party...with a highlight reel show from Chicago jam band Umphrey's McGee who played a free set in the center of town. Just eye-ballin' it...I'd say it was the biggest core party of all time. Additionally, Aspen Mag hosted their millennial party and Aspen Historical Society threw a ski fashion retrospective to culminate a HUGE week.
