Aspen Square Daily News
THE OLYMPIC GAMES WERE A THRILL! Chris Klug, the son of Aspen Square GM Warren Klug, competed in the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, racing in the snowboard PGS event. He came SO CLOSE to the medal round, and in the end finished in 7th place. We were so proud of him. The Klug Family was there, and it was a thrill! Both Opening and Closing Ceremonies were amazing. Nearly 60,000 people in the BC Place arena were all part of the shows and we were there to watch our Aspen Square racer walk in with the US Team. What great celebrations!
Don't forget the sun screen! We are into spring skiing on the mountains of Aspen with great conditions on the slopes and no lift lines. There will be sunny days ahead, and there will certainly be smiles and red faces around the hotel this week. More snow will come our way at week's end. no question, skiing will be excellent over the days ahead. Wow -- more fun skiing and boarding -- and keep the sun screen handy!
AFter being closed for four days, the Colorado Highway Dept got the rock slide cleared and I-70 reopened with one lane available in each direction. Last week saw a shower of huge rocks and boulders came down on the elevated portions of I-70 through Glenwood Canyon. Severe damage to the highway was severe, and the highway was closed in both directions for several days while clean-up efforts and repairs continued. Traffic was rerouted up through Steamboat Springs and Craig, adding about 3 hours to the Denver to Aspen drive. The Eagle Airport was also on the other side of the road closure.
