It is a beautiful Monday here in Aspen. According to local weather forecasts, it should remain sunny until at least Friday. Finally, we are getting a good dose of the sunshine I’ve promised in my last couple blog posts. Start this week off right by checking out Big Gigantic on Tuesday night. This Boulder based duo is comprised of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken. Over the last couple years Big Gigantic has accumulated a massive following, and is considered one of the most entertaining shows in the music business. Also on Tuesday night, catch a performance by Wynonna and the Big Noise. Wynonna has over 60 various musical awards, and was once referred to by Rolling Stone Magazineas “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” Depending on your musical tastes, this could be a really tough choice. However, I’m sure neither performance will disappoint! On Wednesday, catch the Fly Fishing Film Tour’s 13thlap around the globe! The Film Tour is filled with great shorts and stories that will get you in the mood to head up the Frying Pan in pursuit of a trophy trout of your own, catch and release of course. It all leads up to the famous Grand Traverse, a night time backcountry ski race starting at Midnight in Crested Butte traversing Star Pass and Taylor Pass and ending at the bottom of Ajax in Gondola Plaza. Certainly not for the faint of heart, this 38-mile backcountry ski mountaineering race actually follows an old mail route, and includes a climb of over 7,800 vertical feet in elevation! Enjoy this week of fun events and warm weather, and end it by cheering Grand Traverse competitors across the finish line in downtown Aspen! Have a great week. Happy springtime from Aspen Snowmass!

We awoke to six inches of new snow on the mountains this morning in Aspen Snowmass. I had a blast at the 2nd Annual Aspen Snowmass Banked Slalom Race which took place last Saturday at Buttermilk. It was such a fun event and a perfect spring day, nice to see so many friends from the local shredding community. I was happy to get the win. I am looking forward to competing in this weekend’s Elk Mountain Grand Traverse Race, a 38-mile backcountry ski mountaineering race from Crested Butte to Aspen. I’m hoping to be back in Gondola Plaza before 10:30 am Saturday morning. I hope to see you there! Get out and enjoy Aspen’s Spring Jam Events again this weekend! Check out the free Bud-Light Hi-Fi concert on Friday, March 27th featuring Iration at Snowmass Base Village.
