Aspen Square Daily News
Aspen Square's Olympian Chris Klug raced to victory in the Snowboard Parallel Slalom at Steamboat Springs this past weekend, winning the US National Championship in PSL for 2010. What a victory it was! The course was a mix of fresh snow over ice condtions, and it was steep. What a great way for Chris to finish the season and his overall snowboard racing career! Chris's Snowboard Camp starts this weekend ahead at Buttermilk. Fun times ahead!
Monday will be another Sunshine Ski Day! Friday brought over a foot of fresh snow to the mountains of Aspen, and skiing this weekend was amazing. The sun is back still, the snow is deep, and the sky is blue -- wow what terrific conditions! That's spring in the mountains. Skiers and boaders who are enjoying the mountains of Aspen this week are having fun with top slope conditins and now colder weather. And, don't forget all this sunshine! Remember the sunscreen today.
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!
