It's time once again for Movies at the Wheeler, every local's favorite night in and a treat for visitors enjoying Aspen during the cooler fall nights. A pre-film greeting from Master of Wheeler Movie Ceremonies Jon Busch, Indie films, quirky features and foreign comedies - there's always something a little out of the box at the Wheeler.

Instantly, the weather's getting crisper, the mountain colors are deepening and fall is now upon us. In Aspen and Snowmass, that means sunshine, cool breezes and Oktoberfest! This Saturday, September 11th, celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Snowmass' Oktoberfest, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Snowmass Mall. There'll be lederhosen, strudel and steins, full of authentic German brews, music and tastes from the Old Country. This year's Oktoberfest, complete with street performers, kids' activities and a hearty good time in the mountains.
It's a grand finale, complete with a beautiful forecast and another splendid reason to linger atop Aspen Mountain on a Sunday afternoon. This Sunday, September 5th, it's the final Bluegrass Sunday of the summer season, featuring Loose Cannon Bluegrass Band. Take the gondola or take a hike up the mountain; we'll see you at the top!
