Summer rolls on in Aspen / Snowmass
The summer in Aspen / Snowmass got off to a great start this year with an early and very successful, though a bit drizzly, Food & Wine Magazine Classic in Aspen. The Aspen Music Festival and School kicked off shortly after that, followed by the Jazz Aspen / Snowmass June Festival in downtown Aspen. The eyes of the world turned to Aspen for the Aspen Ideas Festival in early July.
There's been no lack of activity over in Snowmass either. Snowmass has seen Chili Pepper Fest, Westfest, the Snowmass Wellness Experience, and the beginning of their summer-long free concert series. This weekend NORBA racers descend on Snowmass for the Snowmass National.
Upcoming events in Aspen / Snowmass include the US Open Mountainboarding Championships, Blast the Mass mountain bike races, the 33rd Annual MotherLode Volleyball classic, the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Festival, the 39th Annual Aspen Ruggerfest, and much, much more.
For us locals, this seemingly endless schedule of events can be a bit overwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I've had nothing but fun this summer, and there's more to come, but sometimes I think it would be nice to have a free weekend to plan for myself! With so much going on, one can't go to absolutely everything. As for me, you'll be sure to find me dancing at the Jazz Aspen concerts, watching bikers bomb down the mountain at Blast the Mass, jamming at the Snowmass free concerts, and standing on the sidelines watching the world's largest and meanest looking men battle it out on the rugby field. Sprinkle in a few Aspen Filmfest flicks, free concerts on the lawn at the Aspen Music Festival, some hiking, rafting, biking and mountain climbing, and you've got the recipe for my (20th or so) perfect summer in Aspen / Snowmass.
I'm gonna need a vacation after this...
