1. Aspen is a true representation of Colorado ski culture.
No. Well, maybe if you’re from Hollywood. But to see how the locals live and what they’re into, start by heading up the road to Carbondale or venturing off the gold-beaten path to towns like Salida or Gunnison, where the ski bums can actually afford to live.
2. No one is actually from here.
Actually, there are lots of us. We just don’t feel the need to talk constantly about the fourteener we just bagged or our cousin’s ski in/ski out condo at Breck, so we’re often drowned out. Head to the local sports bar during a Broncos game and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
