If you're lucky enough to be in Aspen this weekend, the Aspen Skiing Company is offering everyone an unexpected treat - free gondola rides. On Saturday and Sunday, you can ride the gondola for free to the top of Aspen Mountain between the hours of 10am and 4pm. With fall colors peaking and fresh snow on the mountains surrounding Aspen, it will be a magnificent site!
This weekend, Basalt's Gold Medal trout streams will get a workout when the town hosts the US National Fly Fishing Championships. Twelve teams of five members each will compete on five different venues. Each team will be provided with the same boats and gear to level the playing field. Winners will be determined by the number and cumulative length of the fish they catch, although the event is catch-and-release.
Today's rainy and cool weather is ushering in a beautiful fall weekend and if you come visit us, this will be your view of the Maroon Bells! This photo was taken by Aspen Square's Brad Peate on this past Wednesday, September 25.
