Aspen's breathtaking alpine backdrop is known to intoxicate, tempting visitors into staying in the Roaring Fork Valley much longer than originally anticipated. Many well-seasoned Aspenites call this geographical magnetism the "Curse of the Ute" and one of the reasons so many visitors-turned-residents have a difficult time returning to the rat race of their previous lives outside Colorado.

Top 5 Lists and the Top of Aspen Mountain

Can you name 5 people who've changed your outlook on life? Can you name the change? I’ve always been a fan of lists; in fact, I’ve always hoped to be interviewed, asked my top 5 singers, books, actors, songs to take to a desert island, any category, really, which would reveal how savvy and discriminating my tastes are.

The 2009 Winter X-games were a huge success for the city of Aspen, the Roaring Fork Valley, and the state of rippers everywhere! There was, however, a record low attendance for Winter X here in Aspen, The lowest in five years. Some say it’s because of the economy, some say it was the rain, but for this fan it made for a perfect crowd and a spectacular event.
