Pull out the silver, pour the Champagne and celebrate the Silver Anniversary of the Aspen Food and Wine Classic June 14th-16th. For the last twenty-five years chefs, food connoisseurs and wine aficionados have gathered on the sunny green slopes of Aspen to share inspiration and to cultivate ideas in the culinary world.
To celebrate this anniversary, chefs such as Mario Batali, Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, Ming Tsai and Jacques and Claudine Pepin, along with many others, will offer classes in technique, cutting edge flavor combinations and new recipes. Alongside these exciting cooking seminars wine classes, tastings and introduction to new wines and vineyards will also be offered.
Of particular interest on this year’s schedule are ‘Top Chef: Leftover Challenge,’ ‘Conversations: the Chef & the Rancher,’ and the ‘Ultimate Blind Wine Tasting.’ These courses exemplify the spirit of The Food & Wine Festival, where the ordinary challenges faced by cooks and chefs in every kitchen from the home kitchen to the kitchen of a five star restaurant are confronted and creatively resolved. New inspiration can be found in the old favorites of every home and restaurant with entire seminars focused on classics like Macaroni and Cheese and Pork. New foods and new techniques are introduced entirely into the food scene at the Food & Wine Festival as well. This year sausage and Sicilian cuisine are trending in the food world; it is no surprise that more than one class this year will feature these foods.
The complicated wine world is broken down in classes according to regions, flavors, grapes and trends within the wine world. The amateur wine lover will experience the fullness of the wine world, while the finest wine connoisseurs in the world will find things to learn and new wines to encounter in these seminars and in particular the Reserve Tastings. This year the six Reserve Tastings will feature Champagnes from the renowned year of 2002, exclusive Cabernets from Pritchard Hill, a special wine from Brunello di Montacino from 2006 and wines from Angelo Gaja to name a few.
An often-overlooked aspect of the Food and Wine Classic is the Trade Program, which takes a closer look at the restaurant business. Many aspects of running a restaurant will be examined in a number of seminars over the course of the festival. From social media, to training and partnerships with meaningful causes as a mode of advertising, these courses cover a wide range of relevant challenges facing the food industry today. These discussions are held with a panel of speakers led by a moderator to allow for a wide range of views and ideas. Everyone in the food business or even those considering the food business will benefit from these discussions.
Tickets for the Aspen Food and Wine Classic have long since sold out, although there are tickets available for other events related to the festival such as Reserve Tastings and the Last Bite Dessert Bash hosted by Gail Simmons, judge of Bravo’s Top Chef.
As we celebrate the enormous culinary contribution of the Aspen Food & Wine Classic it is clear that Aspen itself has played a central role in establishing the high standards of the festival, and contributed to creative cuisine that has emerged from the festival year after year. One could say that Aspen Food & Wine Classic is more than a weekend festival, but rather a lifestyle found in the restaurants in an around Aspen and Snowmass Village.

It’s that time of year again when magazines and television programs release summer reading lists and recommended authors with whom one ought to spend their downtime this summer. While these lists are often quite good, many book lovers and literary aficionados look for work perhaps less well known, more cutting edge and altogether new. For these readers, in lieu of a Summer Reading List constructed by another, consider spending an entire week attending readings, literary events and book discussions with established authors taking their work in another direction alongside new and aspiring authors discovering their voice and create your own, original and very personal book list.
In June this very opportunity will be available in Aspen at the Aspen Writers’ Foundation: 37th Annual Aspen Summer Words Writing Retreat and Literary Festival. This two-part festival allows readers and writers to assemble together, to rub elbows and to encounter art together, while offering interest specific activities. Considered one of the Top Ten Literary Gatherings by USA Today, agents, authors, editors and readers look forward to this festival all year.
The Literary Festival this year will focus on the storytelling tradition of China. It will feature five books of note. Dreams of Joy, China Airborne, Mother of Fire, Gold Boy, Emerald Girl and Dreaming in Chinese. The authors of these books will discuss the historical, cultural, religious and political transformations of China and the implications of these changes on Art.
The writer’s portion of this event, Aspen Summer Words, advises participants to ‘Immerse Yourself in Words.’ It is this immersion of varying levels and degrees that allows writers to grow through their writing and that of their fellow attendees during the workshops. Writers can choose to apply for a 5-Day Juried Workshop, in which writers participate in intense instruction and revision of a previously existing work. Included in this workshop are writing exercises, reading assignments and group discussion.
For authors not quite ready to pitch a manuscript, but anxious to hone their craft, a 5-Day Non-Juried Workshop will introduce authors to the inner workings of the literary world. This year there will be three sections, Beginning Fiction, Life into Literature and a Young Writers section.
An Interactive Symposia is also available during the week in which authors will examine the written word from every angle. These sessions seems particularly helpful to the new author as they focus on refining and polishing skills. The Symposia also includes two days of literary workshop and a publishing seminar, which will focus this year on digital publishing, a new trend within the publishing world. A one-day session titled, ‘Transforming from Writer to Author’ is also offered.
Tickets for this summer’s event, taking place June 16th-21st are on sale now. Submissions for Workshops are also due for registered participants. Put together the most unforgettable reading list ever this summer in Aspen and Snowmass Village! When you’re finished, take some time to look at homes, condos and investments in Snowmass Village and Aspen where the serenity of Nature and dedication to Art will expand your life and inspire your writing.

It’s just what every Aspenite and Snowmass Villager dreams of: a snowy May. So snowy that the plows and maintenance crews went out during the last week of April to blow through a 4-5 foot wall of snow at the top of Independence Pass.
Although only 63% of the average snowpack for the year when compared to last year this year’s snow levels late in the season are very welcome. The Aspen Times reminded us that last season Independence Pass was clear two weeks earlier than the typical goal date of Memorial Day. This year the pass will open just before Memorial Day, this upcoming Thursday, much to the disappointment of the Ride for the Pass annual event in which riders get the first go at the Pass before it is open to the public and cars. For only the second time in history, the board deemed the road not passable or safe for cyclists.
CDOT explained the delay telling the Times “With relatively mild spring weather, CDOT maintenance patrols on both sides of the pass have broken through the snow, met in the middle and will now complete any necessary repairs to the pavement, guardrail, roadside delineation, signs and more.”
While CDOT is busy tying up the loose ends on the Pass and calling the season mild, Aspen Ski Co. confirmed Facebook rumors today in the Aspen Business Journal that the Silver Queen Gondola on Aspen Mountain will be open this upcoming weekend allowing skiing and snowboarding on the more than four feet of fresh powder since the trails closed in late April.
Of course this is not 2011 when the Pass 361% of annual snow averages and a total of 20 feet of snow on the Pass, making it nearly impossible to clear. However, it is a welcome sight for avid skiers, snowboarders and snow enthusiasts, particularly in light of last year’s abysmal season, and the slow start to this year’s season.
In the report on Monday, Aspen Ski Co. was still boasting a 33-inch base with 16 trails open and nearly 90 acres of terrain. The Ajax Express lift will also be open helping to service the mountain. President of operations, Rich Burkley told ASB, “If it won’t quit snowing, we won’t quit skiing.” As he said this, snow was reportedly falling at the top of the mountain. Those fortunate enough to be on the mountain in the past few weeks have reported some of the best powder and conditions of the entire season.
Premier passes from 2012/2013 will continue to be honored. All other pass holders will pay a discounted rate to get back on the mountain in late May.
The ABJ reported that the only ski resort in Colorado still running is Arapahoe Basin.
While skiers and bikers may compete in these last weeks of May for dominance on the mountain, both are relieved and happy to see the mountains capped in white with the promise of water, lush forest and rushing rivers this summer.

There is nothing quite so beautiful as the Elk Mountains in the first blush of summer. The four mountains wrapped in green and sprinkled with bursts of colors from the wild flowers are the perfect inspiration for conservation. Which may just explain why the Aspen Eco Fest takes place every year in the month of June.
This year’s festival will take place June 8th and 9th will include music, food and products available for purchase. All items for sale, including food, will derive from sustainable sources with strict environmental standards.
Details for this year’s event have yet to be released as vendors clamor for spots in the festival and organizers hammer out the final schedule, but if history is a good predictor it will be a fun, light hearted and educational event. An article published last year in the Aspen Daily News captured the essence of the event and catalogued the people and businesses the Eco Event attracts. Fisherman and businessman Kaleb Walker from nearby Glenwood Springs was featured in the article and is the paragon of an eco business. For a few months a year he fishes up in Alaska using wild snares, the rest of the year he runs a guided hunting business out of Glenwood Springs. In addition to selling his wild Alaskan Salmon at the festival last year, he also circulated a petition seeking a limit on mining in the Pebble Mines near Bristol Bay in Alaska.
In addition to businessmen and women like Walker, the Aspen T.R.E.E. foundation offered sustainable living tips and farming ideas to the public to encourage and offer resources to individuals seeking a more sustainable lifestyle in their own backyards. A short film festival and yoga events were offered in addition to talks and demonstrations on every sustainable living topic from farming to light bulbs and cars.
Festival organizer, Shea Singer explained the vision behind the Eco Fest, “We wanted to blend lifestyle, business and the environment.” This goal is apparent throughout the entire festival. While the subject matter and intent behind the event are very serious, Singer prides herself and other festival participants on creating and maintaining a fun, family friendly and light-hearted event complete with a ‘Chicken Poo Raffle.’ Singer told the Aspen Daily News that she sought to create a different atmosphere than that found at other environmental events, which she described as stuffy. She feels the success of The Aspen Eco Fest is proof that through accessible, educational and fun events, individuals seeking a better more sustainable future for the world, and the Elk Mountains can truly make a difference.
If you are interested in hosting a booth of your own at the Aspen Eco Fest, or simply planning on attending, make your plans now! If you are looking for a home built upon sustainable principles, there are many homes in the Aspen and Snowmass Village area that have incorporated these ideas into the infrastructure of the home.

The month of May is traditionally accepted in and around Aspen and Snowmass Village to be a quiet time of year. Restaurants and shops around town close down to allow their employees and staff some much-needed downtime before the summer rush. While these weeks may not be full of events, festivals or crowds of visitors, they are one of the few times a year Aspenites and Snowmass Villagers get an opportunity to get out and enjoy their natural surroundings free of stress, worry or impending event.
Beginning in May and continuing through September, the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies will host the Green World Day Hike. This activity offers locals and tourists the opportunity to understand the history of Pitkin County in greater depth and fullness. Just a little more than a three-mile hike this tour begins at the ghost town of Ashcroft. Here groups will encounter Nature as seen in the wildflowers and summer beauty so abundant this time of year. Along with a history lesson and easy/moderate hike, lunch will also be served at the Pine Creek Cookhouse.
For those wishing to enjoy the fullness of the late summer evening, the River Run Sunset Hike will also be offered through ACES throughout the warmer months. Also beginning at Ashcroft Ghost Town, this perambulation includes dinner at the Pine Creek Cookhouse as well as the wonder of Castle Creek Valley at sunset.
While most events at ACES really begin to gather steam in mid-June through a series of programs and hikes, which ought not to be missed, such as the Maroon Bells Hikes, the Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Hike and the Sunset Beaver Walk all offered throughout the summer along with many other educational hikes and series, most notable in the early spring is the volunteer gardening program which will commence at the Hallam Lake campus of ACES. These gardening classes are a wonderful opportunity for new residents or part-time residents to learn about their natural environment and to get helpful tips on growing their own garden at a higher elevation with a shorter growing season.
In addition to homes and condos with gardening plots, Greg Rulon listed a beautiful homesite off of Ridge View Lane in Snowmass Village recently. This large lot, more than an acre, offers views of both the Continental Divide and Burnt Mountain. In addition to being one of the last available building lots remaining in Ridge Run , the owner of this lot could lay out at the get-go their gardening plots and their vision for the landscape and environment surrounding this proposed 5400 square foot home. The sky is the limit for this piece of property!
Enjoy the late spring as the wildlife emerge from hibernation, as the foxes creep out of their den to crash late afternoon barbeques or the bears wander through town, experience the wonder of deer and baby fawns, rabbits, wild geese and birds as their babies clamber out to enjoy the fullness of spring. There can be no better place to witness this rejuvenation of life than with your very own lot during the quiet and wonderful month of May in the Elk Mountains. Locals and longtime residents recognize the value of vacant land, a clean slate from which owners have the opportunity to create their own dialogue completely.
Enrollment for the Summer Workshops for children and families at the Aspen Art Museum are now open for the upcoming summer, in fact many are already full. Several of this year’s workshops are inspired by the upcoming special exhibit from American Folk Artist Rob Pruitt which will be shown at the AAM from early May until mid July.
Much of Pruitt’s work is easily accessible to children as he uses bright and contrasting colors, bold images and clean lines. Pruitt is the creator of two very popular dinosaur sculptures, along with a few lesser-known dinosaurs. He also has famously created the sparkly panda images that have become part of the contemporary culture.
Panda Power and Dino-Mite are two classes being offered this summer based on Pruitt’s work. Panda Power will allow children to combine their natural love for the wildlife and glitter. Included in this class will be printing the images created in class on unusual materials, broadening children’s perceptions of printable material and allowing them to experiment with a variety of materials. Dino-Mite will be a sculpting class in which children will choose the dinosaur with whom they most identify and allow themselves to be the inspiration for their sculpture.
When Pruitt’s exhibition opens at the Aspen Art Museum on May 3rd it will be his first ever solo museum survey hosted in the United States. The Museum will have pieces on display taking the viewer through Pruitt’s diverse oeuvre of work from the early 1990’s through today.
The overwhelming sense one has upon viewing a large collection of work from Pruitt is his tongue-in-cheek attitude toward art as a whole and particularly contemporary art. He playfully splashes smiley faces upon brightly color canvasses as in his piece, “Yummo!”He also toys with the recent relationship between celebrities and art. He has playfully revisited Charles Schultz’s Charlie Brown, toyed with Coca-Cola branding and participated in a Jimmy Choo ad campaign.
Pruitt will host his opening reception on June 27th in conjunction with Thea Djordjadze’s Opening Reception. This reception will offer members of the museum an opportunity to walk through the exhibits with the artists and hear their thoughts on their work and discuss their inspirations.
Djordjadze will show her work simultaneously with Pruitt and due to very different nature of her Art, the two exhibits will compliment each other. Where Pruitt is bold, bright and direct, Djordjadze is subtle, restrained and suggestive. Djordjadze, although trained in painting, has turned toward sculptural installations created from found and constructed elements. She takes the selected pieces and carefully places them in the museum environment with the intention of evoking certain thoughts or feelings in her audience. Like Pruitt, this showing will be her first major solo exhibition in the U.S.
As these two artists experience their first solo shows in America, AAM hopes their work will inspire young artists within the community to capture their vision of their world in the workshop classes held at the museum and throughout their life as a whole.
Sign up today for workshops at the AAM, come on by the museum to see the incredible work generated by these and other artists today.

Never one to miss a trend, particularly one involving extreme sports, Aspen has embraced the ultramarathon trend sweeping sports enthusiasts throughout the nation. Aspen/Snowmass announced this week that they plan to hold The Power of Four 50K on August 4th, the day after the Power of Four Bike Ride on the same course for the first time this year. Permits and Route details have yet to receive final approval from city and county officials, however organizers expect this event to become a pivotal event on the extreme sportsman or woman’s calendar throughout the county and the world.
Thirty-one miles, a full six miles longer than the traditional marathon, the ultramarathon can either take place on the road in town or on trails. In the case of the Power of Four ultra race, it will be a trail race. Experts advise that these events can be particularly challenging, even to distance runners with multiple marathons under their belts. The additional miles pose extra physical challenge, in combination with the different experience of running trails rather than paved roads. Trail running is slower and more physically taxing than street running due to obstacles in the path and uneven ground. It is recommended that runners, particularly street runners add a full 30 seconds to the street racing times per mile in training while preparing for running on trails.
According to Runnerworld.com, runners entering this race ought to have experience not simply with running long distances in a competitive atmosphere, but also with course navigation, proprioception, hill running and strength. Likewise, runners ought to take the training time necessary in order to experiment with nutrition and calorie intake.
The proposed course for the Power of Four course will provide an incredible challenge to ultramarathon runners. The race will begin at Ajax Tavern and proceed to the top of Ajax, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and at last to Snowmass where racers will complete the course. While many details surrounding this event have yet to be announced, the flair and challenge posed by the Aspen/Snowmass through this extreme sport will leave sportsmen and women alike alive with the spirit of adventure, challenge and accomplishment.
Registration is currently open to relay teams or individuals willing to commit to this endurance feat this upcoming summer. Individual registration is $75 and teams will race with 2 racers is $95. Stay tuned for changes in the course or updates on the details.
Many in the ultramarathon world see the 50K as an entry-level race for those wanting to run 50-mile races. Virtually everyone recognizes that there is no place on the planet more beautiful and more conducive to the ultramarathon way of life than Aspen and Snowmass Village.

The Snowmass Sun and the Aspen Historical Society are running a sometimes series in the Sun in which readers are taken back into history for a walk down Memory Lane. Most recently this walk took Snowmass Sun readers back to 1986 where a picture of Closing Weekend on Snowmass Mountain was shared along with memories of Banana Season.
Banana Season, for those unfamiliar with this Snowmass Village Tradition, consisted of a gong show, banana limbo, the Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Contest and the Bartender’s Trophy. According to the Sun in 1986 the winning bartender, Mr. Terry Long won with his unforgettable Banana Beach Ball Drink. Of course a number of other activities also served to refresh residents after a long winter season on the mountain.
This year as Snowmass Mountain closed after its 45th season on April 14th there was not exactly a Banana Season festival or a mixed drink contest – at least not one reported in the Sun, instead residents enjoyed fresh powder on the mountain and a party at Base Village in the plaza.
Like the Aspen Historical Society and the Snowmass Sun, Greg Rulon and his team appreciate the older homes, condos and properties in and around Aspen and Snowmass Village and the value they offer the buyer and the community as a whole today. These properties are often set in the heart of town, near festivities, restaurants and town events. This prime real estate was snapped up in the early development of these towns, and on rare occasions these properties re-enter the marketplace.
Just recently one of these properties made its reappearance, and due to its location just off of Faraway Road in Snowmass Village, 1068 Faraway Rd. will go quickly. This three bedroom, two thousand two hundred fourteen square foot home is located on a treed lot with views of Mt. Daly and Sam’s Knob. Built in 1968 this home has the option of expansion up to 3,900 square feet FAR per town direction.
Lovely stone work in the home, and almost wall-to-wall windows in the living area and vaulted ceilings with high windows, this home is the perfect entry into the much sought after Ridge Run subdivision. In addition the three spacious bedrooms, three full bathrooms, den and two car garage, 1068 Faraway also has a built-in sauna to help residents and visitors relax, breath deeply and warm up.
A large deck invites residents out for an afternoon in the sun, while skylights throughout the house and specifically in the bedrooms flood the house with natural light and heat throughout the year.
This beautiful home is in lovely condition and is move-in ready, or presents the perfect opportunity for remodel for a buyer looking to live in the heart of town. Click here to take a tour of this home today or to see other listings Greg Rulon is currently showing.
For those longtime Aspen/Snowmass residents don’t forget to send your pictures of the Banana Season in to the Aspen Historical Society, and for those new to the area, get ready to make wild memories and take pictures of your own experiences in Aspen and Snowmass Village!
The residents of Snowmass Village have embraced their longest (by far) resident and newest neighbor, Snowy the Mastodon with open arms. So warm has her welcome been that The Tenth Annual Snowmass Chili Pepper and Brew Fest has expanded its scope this June and changed its name to become the Snowmass Mammoth Fest.
The central focus of the event will remain the chili and brew competition, taking place June 7-8th in the new festival location of Snowmass Town Park. Attendees to the festival can sample these chilis in small portions and vote for their favorite either Friday night or Saturday afternoon and evening. Snowmass Village, whose livelihood depends in large part upon incredible food and the tourism industry, has taken the rivalry of restaurants and their culinary reputation to new heights with their culinary competitions throughout the year.
In a lighthearted, but simultaneously, very serious manner the Chili Tasting and Competition will determine which chef or amateur claims the title of the best chili maker in town for 2013. In separate divisions for Chili Verde, Red Chili and Salsa, there are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards as well as the People’s Choice Award. The Brew Competition separates Home Brewers and Craft Brewers into separate divisions with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Awards as well as Honorable Mention.
While the culinary masters from local businesses, food enthusiasts and aspiring amateur cooks offer the public their version of delicious chili, and home brewers and craft brewers pour glasses of delicious, cold beer, live music will be on the main stage both Friday night and all day Saturday into the night entertaining the cooks, servers and samplers.
Friday’s headliner will be the band Return to the Dark Side of the Moon with band members from such famous bands as the Henry Rollins Band and the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lenny Kravitz among others. Saturday’s docket will include performances from AWONATION, Fierce Bad Rabbit, You, Me & Apollo and many others.
In years past the fantastic live music has inspired festival attendees to take a break for chili critiquing to dance, sway with the music and embrace the moment and the music.In addition to chili sampling and musical variety, local merchants, vendors and artisans will have booths with handmade items for sale.
Festival organizers expect this year’s event to be larger and better than ever with expected attendees from within the community and from the entire state. To accommodate these visitors the festival has incorporated onsite camping into this festival. Camping passes are $30/night and do not include tickets to the event. Local hotels are also offering special pricing for this event. Tickets have been on sale since mid-March and offer two-day tickets or single day tickets. Early Bird Specials on tickets typically sell out in April.

As the United States Military draws near to its troop withdrawal goals in the Middle East, battle weary soldiers are returning home. Many have suffered obvious physical wounds; others have wounds of a different sort such as brain injuries and posttraumatic stress. In many cases these soldiers return home to find their military service completed, or their bodies unable to continue the mission they thought would define their lives. For these men and women the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass Village helps them to redefine their mission.
This year’s theme Mission ReDefined spoke to the veterans as they search for meaning in their newly defined lives and look for the next step in their journey. Recent studies cited by the clinic on their website indicate that adaptive sports help individuals cope with stress, reduce dependency on pain medication and depression medication, increase academic and professional success and encourage independence.
The event is held every year on Snowmass Mountain, per tradition. In a series of workshops and clinics a variety of winter sports are introduced to the veterans. Cross country skiing, rock climbing, scuba diving kayaking, trapshooting and snowmobiling were among the sports offered this year in workshops.
This year it was held April 11th-15th. Sign-ups began last August for the much sought after 400 veterans spots in the program. Sponsored with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Disabled American Veterans and supported by over 200 certified ski instructors for the disabled along with countless local and national volunteers, this event is among the very favorite within the Snowmass Village Community.
Truly a community who cares about its own, as well as the greater good of the entire nation, residents in Snowmass Village look forward to the opportunity to thank the men and women who have put their lives on the line for our Country. Not only are the veterans loved for their service and selflessness, but also for their longstanding reputation for good manners, politeness and graciousness in and around town. As the event this year wound up, residents were sorry to see these brave individuals pack up and head back to their lives at home.
Mother Nature likewise seemed to smile down on Snowmass Village this weekend and her veteran visitors by sending a generous spring storm with abundant powder. It is just this gorgeous spring snow that has brought the veterans back year after since 1987. Sandy Trombetta, founder and director of the clinic found that skiing and winter sports experiences helped disabled veterans find a renewed sense of strength and self-reliance. For the past 27 years veterans have rebuilt their lives and redefined their life mission with the skills and courage learned, rediscovered and remembered on Snowmass Mountain.
Although these most recent conflicts overseas may be winding down, the impact of these wars on the veterans of our country will last for their entire lives. These men and women are worthy of thanks, deep gratitude and a collective memory of their service and sacrifice. It is with great honor that those in Snowmass Village welcome these veterans to town, and eagerly await their return next year.
