Aspen was “fully open” this summer and every event we missed in 2020 came back. Jim Horowitz and his incredible team at JAS ASPEN during Labor Day weekend filled to capacity about 10,000 tickets-all outdoors. It was truly a celebration. Jimmy Buffet closed the event and beach balls were airborne!
Food and Wine followed with a smaller maximum of 2,500 from 5,000. It was so successful and sold out so early that it is scheduled for June 17-19, 2022 and will be back to normal. CLICK HERE
Several friends mentioned how crowded they thought Aspen was this summer. We ARE A RESORT TOWN!! We can help you find your piece of heaven in your private sanctuary. Many of us cooked at home and enjoyed our outdoor decks with our own food, wine, and great friends and family. We also know the best hikes, walks, bike ride places. NOTHING is crowded
like any city. We are so blessed and grateful to be in this valley. Remember, also, that our charming town of Basalt is only 20-30 minutes away with gold medal fishing on the Frying Pan, and even sailing, water skiing on Reudi Reservoir up the same road. Prices are much more reasonable too!
Now, we start to think about our ski season which opens in less than 2 months!! Our local weather “geek” announces his forecast, Saturday, Oct 2. He has consistently been within an inch or two of precipitation the past several winter and summer seasons. We will absolutely let you know in our next letter. He is hinting we skiers will LOVE it!
