December 17-18th, the 11th Annual USPA World Snow Polo Championship comes to Rio Grande Park in Aspen. In fact, Aspen is the sole venue for U.S. Snow Polo competitions. That's a pretty special honor, indeed. The games will be played across the snow-packed arena and spectators will enjoy the action under heated tents (never fear!)
Amble over to the field, just a block from Aspen Square Hotel, and take in the excitement throughout the weekend! For more info: www.worldsnowpolo.com
It's our favorite time of year again, when our own Chris Klug hosts a full weekend of parties and inspires Aspen uphill-ers towards raising funds, and awareness, for organ and tissue donation.
Pick from any, or many, Summit for Life events in and around town and mountain: the Annual Wine and Dine for Life on December 9, from 6:30-9:30 pm, followed by the Party for Life at 39 Degrees; and on Saturday, December 10, it's the ever-exhilarating Summit for Life up Aspen Mountain with celebration party to follow.
