Once you've had your fill of romance on Valentine's Day, how about exploring the romance of skiing in the backcountry? Wednesday, February 15, the Aspen Historical Society presents a discussion, The History of Backcountry Skiing, detailing 50 years of backcountry skiing with some of the most adventuresome guys around - Neal Beidleman, Art Burrows, Dick Jackson, Chris Davenport and Jordan White. The Highlands Alehouse is the place, and a $10 ticket includes a beer. The conversation begins at 5:30pm. Details can be found at aspenhistory.org.
