In Case You Don't Feel Like Skiing...

Even in Aspen, Colorado, it's no crime to admit that you are just not that into skiing or snowboarding. Maybe you never were. Or maybe that last run knocked all the snow out of you.

Either way, while your friends frolic down the slopes, you need something to do besides going to the movies over and over and over.

Do not despair. Aspen has lots to do.

X-TACY!

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.
