With all the great snow we've had recently, we know everyone has been out on the slopes enjoying the fresh powder. If you need a bit of recovery time, we suggest a terrific way to learn more about our favorite ski town-the Aspen Historical Society's series called Time Travel Tuesdays. Tonight's program, which begins at 5:30 at the Aspen Community Church, is called "Pitkin: A County Out Of Thin Air," focuses on the creation of Pitkin County. The panel discussion includes Larry Fredrick from the Historical Society, former county commissioner Michael Kinsley and county manager John Peacock.
March is coming in like a sleeping lion this morning, with big flakes sifting down, adding to the 2 feet of snow we've received in the last couple of weeks. Conditions are great and prices even better, so take advantage of this "perfect storm" and come see us.
