Greetings Friends!
Well, as I was screaming down the Back of Bell mountain and then the face of Bell a a few times last Tuesday, I said to myself - this is the best ski day of the season! The recipe for a perfect ski day!

No doubt there were plenty of skiers and boarders who described their ski days this past week as “the best day ever.” Especially this past Tuesday after a snowstorm piled powder higher than half a foot.

We are in an astounding snow cycle: Aspen enjoys 4th straight month of above-average snowfall. If this is climate change in the Aspen Valley, then GREAT! Our weather geek thinks this could continue into May. This definitely brings out the joy! It also saves our summer with plenty of water runoff, and fends off the fires.

WINTER X GAMES was a great success last weekend with nearly 100 of the world's top winter athletes with a total of 68,100 spectators. The ski mountains were nice and empty because Buttermilk was
full of X Games Fans! HISTORY OF X GAMES

We have two strong months left in our ski and real estate season. If you have any desire to quietly list your property, now is the time. The contract just went hard on one of my favorite properties that never went in the MLS. It was “listed” at $23,500,000 and both the Sellers and Buyers are very happy with the deal. I have a few more in my pocket, so please let me know if you are looking to move up or down!!
We have three GREAT candidates for three of five seats. Aspen is in need of a dire change of leadership. If you have friends who can vote in the City of Aspen, please have them vote. Click below for more information. Thank you!

I purchased Atomic "Maven" Skis this past week and absolutely love them and the definition of Maven is even more fitting!

The word maven comes from the Yiddish meyvn, meaning one who understands. But to be a maven you have to more than just understand a topic, you have to know its ins and outs. Often mavens are the people that you turn to as experts in a field you don't become a maven overnight. That kind of expertise comes with an accumulation of knowledge over the years.
We would love to HELP YOU with an your rental and/or real estate needs!!
