My Extreme Aspen Experience: ESPN Winter X Games

ESPN Winter X-Games 15 at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, COESPN Winter X-Games 15 at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, CO ASPEN, CO I got to spend 3 days in Aspen... DURING THE X-GAMES NO LESS!! It was a great experience that came along with a few “bumps and bruises” but I surely wouldn't trade a moment of it!

I live in Eagle and have attended at least 1 day of the “Games” each Winter since they've been in Aspen. This year was different in the manner that I got to stay Fri-Sun... had condo accommodations and lift tickets for Buttermilk! It was like I had hit a mini jackpot! I jumped on the opportunity to immerse myself in the Aspen Winter X-Game 15 experience that seemed to have just been laid at my snowboard boot covered feet :)

Aspen is EXTREMELY versatile!!

Aspen MountainAspen Mountain Today officially begins Winter X-Games 15, being held at Buttermilk Mountain in awesome Aspen, CO January 27th-30th, and though I won't be there until Friday, my nerves are already tingling with excitement!! Aspen is certainly cool enough on it's own, but with the added extreme adrenaline running through the hills one can't help but be a bit overwhelmed in the best way ever!!

Keller Williams is coming to the Vilar Center!!!

My Golden Ticket to see Keller Williams at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek on Thursday January 13th, 2011My Golden Ticket to see Keller Williams at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek on Thursday January 13th, 2011 Aspen, CO - Music moves me... and it surely soothes the soul of this savage beast as well!! It's notes move through me like a cool running creek and I NEED it in my life like I need air to breathe. Many of you reading this might think I'm being a bit dramatic but those of you who feel as I do about music and those who make it KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THIS CHICK IS TALKIN' ABOUT!!
I was lucky enough to grow up ½ hour away from a pretty large outdoor amphitheater, Saratoga Performing Arts Center or SPAC for those of you out there who might be from the part of the country that I spent my “early life” rocking it out. Friends and I spent countless summer hours hanging out in the parking lot, before the shows, playing Frisbee, smoking ciggies and swilling a bit of sauce yet we all knew why we were really there!!! Whether it was Eric Clapton, Elton John, Heart, The Steve Miller Band, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, Ozzy Osbourne, etc., it was ALWAYS about the music that was going to fill our ears and the melodies that would get our feet moving and for that I am and will be forever grateful!!
