Aspen Square Daily News
It has been snowing all day today and it's not showing any signs of stopping for a while. Our guests always want fresh snow for their stays and we're happy we can provide it - more than a half foot in just the last day - for a small price: travel delays. Bear with us getting here and we guarantee a great time!
Two talented Aspen High School students will compete at the X Games tonight in the skiing superpipe finals at Buttermilk and we hope you'll tune in to cheer them on. Torin Yater-Wallace is just 17, but competing at his third X Games. AHS senior, Alex Ferreira, competing for the first time, reached an unprecedented height of 18.1' during last night's qualifying rounds. The finals begin at 8:45 tonight - don't miss it!
If you want to take a break from the X Games, the Aspen Institute and Theatre Masters have just the right alternative. On Saturday night, January 26, the Institute hosts a free fireside chat, "Theater Today Gives Voice to Timeless Ideas" beginning at 5pm in the Koch Building. Then Theatre Masters presents three nights of "Take Ten," an evening of ten-minute plays written by playwriting students from CalArts, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia and more. "Take Ten" runs January 27-29 at Aspen High School's Black Box Theater. All performances are at 7:30pm.
