“THE MOST AMBITIOUS ATHLETIC AND CULTURAL PROGRAM ever presented to the Aspen Public School was unanimously adopted by the Board of Education at a meeting Wednesday night, Oct. 3,” announced The Aspen Times on Oct. 5, 1962. “As outlined by two-time Olympic gold medal ski champion, Andrea Mead Lawrence, the program would embrace not only skiing but skating, gymnastics, archery, bowling, a creative discussion group with speakers and moderators from the Aspen Institute if possible, art appreciation, music appreciation and an elective study hall and calisthenics program. Both the Board and the parents’ delegation emphasized strongly that the program, although not given for credit, would be considered an integral part of the school curriculum, subject to the discipline and demands of a regular school class. Outstanding cooperation has been received from all those contacted to participate in the volunteer program, the delegation said.” The image above shows students at the Red Brick School in the late 1950s.

GEAR of the WEEK

by STEPHEN REGENOLD

WEAR IT: YAKTRAX SUMMIT TRACTION ON ICE and snow via add-on products is not new. But this year Yaktrax bolsters the category of slip-on spikes with its Summit model. Wear them on shoes or boots and you get 12 triangular, carbon-steel spikes sticking from each foot. They cut into ice, letting you run uninhibited on a hockey rink or frozen lake. But flat ice is not the exclusive venue. The company made the Summits, $90, for their namesake destination — the top of mountain peaks. Unlike most Yaktrax models, which are designed for winter trails, the Summits can kick steps up steep snow. They have enough traction for glaciers and alpine ridges. The spikes are 3/8th of an inch long, and the Summit has nonstick sole plates to shed snow underfoot. Thin, stainless-steel cable lacing and rubber yokes attaches them to your shoes. A first this year, Yaktrax uses the twist-to-tighten Boa Technology closure to cinch them secure. Off the foot, they are low-profile and light. They weigh about 10 ounces each and fold up small, fitting easily in a pocket once you hit pavement or trail. Years ago, I climbed Mount Rainier in a similar pair of spikes. The low-profile, flexible design allowed me to trade bulky boots for a pair of waterproof trail shoes. I was faster and less fatigued over the two-day climb than my partner, who wore traditional mountaineering crampons on his plastic boots. A caveat: products like the Yaktrax Summit (and the similar Kahtoola MICROspikes) will not work well on technical climbs. They have no frontfacing points, which are needed on steep snow and ice. They also don’t secure on similar to mountaineering crampons, which attach with wire bails and buckles.

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

On the other end of the spectrum, the Summits are overkill for a lot of uses. The spikes are too aggressive for running. Places with mixed terrain, including rocks or pavement as well as ice, would be bad for the Summits. Look to Yaktrax’s lower-profile models in those situations. But for peak-bagging, hiking on steep winter trails, or for use on glare ice, the Yaktrax Summits are a solution to staying upright, no matter what’s underfoot.

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by BARBARA PLATTS

The author hits the open road en route to the West Coast.

MOVING WESTWARD A JOURNEY TO THE LEFT COAST

“WE WERE SOMEWHERE around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold.” Well, kind of. OK, not really. Unless we count the Sudafed. We had a pair of nasty colds that wouldn’t quit, so we were all hopped up on decongestants in hopes that it would rid us of our mucus-filled glands. It wasn’t the BARBARA case, but the Sudafed PLATTS provided a good pickme-up for the long journey. Anyway, we were in Barstow heading west, somewhere near the start of the San Bernardino Mountains and the end of the desert, when we recalled the famous Hunter S. Thompson quote. The Barstow reference was the start of Thompson’s book “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” Whether we read it in full or just saw the movie, the famous story helped prompt many a millenial’s

P H OTO B Y M AT T F E R R O

dream road trip. I’d never been to Barstow before, this median ground between Las Vegas and Los Angeles. I know the Western United States relatively well, but just via commercial jet routes. Driving these roads is an entirely different story. We got to see all of the nitty gritty details, from the roadside motel campgrounds to the off, off, OFF Vegas strip casino resorts. We were in this desolate yet thriving metropolis for around 30 minutes, just long enough to load up on gas, get some coffee, walk the pup and make one or two Barstow-related jokes. An added bonus was watching a drug deal go down behind the 76 branded gas station. Wow, did this place live up to its reputation. The town of Barstow is not what this trip is about. Actually, it’s not even what this column is about. But the desert community served as a solid benchmark on the long journey my boyfriend Matt, our pup Cassius and myself were on. It started, of course, in

Aspen. Roughly 645 miles and 11 hours later we were in Vegas. We stayed there for a few days with a friend. Surprisingly enough, when you stay in the Vegas suburbs, a stint in the Sin City is much more tolerable, but that’s a story for a different time. Anyway, after Vegas, our destination was Los Angeles — about 269 miles and 4½ hours southwest. We made this journey to see a friend who was recovering from a stroke. Sure, a flight to La La Land would’ve been more efficient timewise, but Cassius had never seen the ocean so we thought it cruel to not include him on the adventure. Plus, we had a romantic notion in our heads of the ideal road trip. There’s just something about driving fast on the open road that’s downright addictive. It feels free, similar to blasting down the Face of Bell on a powder day. After Barstow came the San Bernadino Mountains. The layers of smog thickened as we got closer to Los Angeles. Even in these

lower mountains, there was snow on the tops of the peaks. It was a beautiful sight to behold as the sun lowered behind them, illuminating the clouds in shades of orange and pink. We get so used to the beauty of our Elk Mountain Range that I always feel a bit surprised that there are other peaks close by that are so mesmerizing. Once we hit San Bernadino, the pollution had thoroughly set in, along with the traffic. The freedom the long stretches of highway had given us was quickly replaced with chaos and anxiety. We were somewhere around La La Land and now, more than before, we truly wished some drugs would take hold. More coming at you next week from the road. Barbara Platts is acutely aware of how much fresh powder she is missing whilst roaming through the desert. She’s incredibly envious, but wishes everyone lots of fun on the slopes.

WINEINK

GLOBAL GRAPES BEYOND THE BASICS

THE LAST TWO WineInks explored the passion that people have for individual varieties of grapes. The first was about an Italian winemaker’s love for a grape, dorona, that was, until recently, in danger of extinction and is currently found on just one Venetian island with fewer than 100 vines. The second was an account of a KELLY J. group of winemakers, HAYES the Pinot Posse, and their obsession with a grape grown all over the world that is famed for the different expressions of that grape depending on the place it is grown. These are two very different wine perspectives, each valid in their own way. But they are an example of just how diffuse and varied the wine world can be, depending on what grapes one chooses to focus on.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVE? So what is your favorite grape? Most of us will respond with something that we drink regularly. If we like white wines, Chardonnay or sauvignon blanc might be the answer. And fans of reds likely will chime in with cabernet sauvignon or merlot, or perhaps even zinfandel. After all, these are the wines and the grapes that we are most familiar with here. But throughout the world there are thousands of grape varieties, some related, some totally unique, that can be, have been, and are currently used to make wine. It is estimated that as many as 1,200 different grape varieties are made into a commercially sold bottle of wine somewhere on Earth. Have you ever heard of airén? It is a white wine grape largely grown in Spain and it is the most widely planted white wine grape on earth. In fact, until the beginning of this century it was No. 1. But as tastes have turned to red wines, it has been passed globally by cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Still, for a grape that few of us here in America have heard of, much less tried, it is amazing how much airén is grown.

THE ADELAIDE REPORT According to a study produced by the University of Adelaide in Australia, one of the most significant global wine institutions, 99 percent of commercial wine growing is done in 44 countries. They range from France, which, as of 2010, was responsible for 21 percent of production, to countries like Israel, Belgium and even Ethiopia, which produce fractional amounts but still have significant commercial wineries. In the study, which was released in 2014 covering the first decade of this century, there was a total of 1,271 different grape varieties listed. In Italy alone there are 396 separate and distinct varieties cultivated by vintners, by far the most of any country. There is currently a movement in Italy to revive a number of the “ancient,” or lost, varieties of grape and bring them to the public. In Sicily, a group is using the techniques employed by the Romans to make wine from indigenous and nearly forgotten grapes like nerello mascalese and muscatedda. And in Piedmonte, in Northern Italy, a grape called pelaverga is being used to produce light, bright and fruity wines from a grape that has “roots” going back to the 1600s. But it is not just obscure varieties. Bobal, a Spanish red wine grape, is more widely planted than sangiovese. Grasevina is the No. 15 ranked grape in terms of acreage on Earth, with 20 percent more coverage than riesling, a grape that we know well and to which it is similar in composition. Grasevina is found readily in Austria, Croatia and Hungary.

DRINK LOCALLY When you think about it, making wine is a simple and natural process. Grapes ferment on their own and people have long recognized that some grapes have better flavors than others. If you lived in Greece, the xinomavro that has been made in the region for a thousand years may taste better to you than the finest merlot from Bordeaux.

The Village of Castiglione di Sicilia in the Mount Etna wine region, home to a number of ancient and indigenous wine grapes.

Oh, and about that Ethiopian wine. There are projects underway in the high Rift Valley to produce wines from vines planted to international varieties, like cabernet and merlot, in partnership with the French. But there is also a grape, dodoma, that is native to the region. So what does it all mean? First, there is a world of great wine experiences for you to explore. Go to your favorite wine shop and seek out grapes that may be unknown to you. Buy a bottle a month of a grape you don’t normally drink. It will open your eyes. Next, if you have the good fortune to be able to travel to wine regions around the world,

drink local. Seek out the indigenous grapes and open your mind — and your palate — to the tastes of the region. Travel global. Drink local. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soon-to-be-designated appellation of Old Snowmass. He can be reached at malibukj@ aol.com.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE 2013 ALPHA ESTATE XINOMAVRO HEDGEHOG VINEYARD Produced by one of the top Greek wineries, this wine is dark, deep and highly tannic. Pronounced ka-see-NOH-MAV-row, the dark-skinned grapes are made into what are considered to be Greece’s most desired wines. The translation in Greek of the grape is “acid-black,” but in the hands of a winemaker like Angelos Iatridis, the rough edges are smoothed to silk while the darkness remains.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

NIGHTLY SPECIAL

CHEFS CLUB NOW FEATURES GREAT CHEFS OLD AND NEW

REBRANDING can be tricky — in the restaurant world, especially. To change the name of an establishment (and, presumably, introduce a new chef at the helm) is to start from scratch. On the other hand, sticking with the status quo can create an illusion that nothing much has changed, even if a new chef is toiling behind the scenes. AMANDA RAE The new-andimproved Chefs Club combines the best of both. Though now out from under the Food & Wine umbrella (the company launched the venue in 2012 to showcase the magazine’s annual list of Best New Chefs in America), the restaurant inside the St. Regis Aspen Resort retains the first part of its original name. Which makes sense, as “Chefs Club” most accurately describes the concept: A seasonal menu featuring nearly two-dozen signature dishes from great chefs across culinary eras — Batali, Boulud and Ripert included — as well as up-and-comers. “It’s as if the restaurant was a DJ, playing the greatest chefs from around the world,” says chef Bryce Shuman, who decamps to Chefs Club Aspen this Friday and Saturday, Jan. 13-14, for the first guest cooking engagement. (Indeed, many great chefs begin as Best New Chefs, and Shuman (2015) got a taste of Aspen last summer when he collaborated with other top toques during the Food & Wine Classic.) The visit comes at an opportune time for the former executive chef of Betony in New York City — Shuman closed his Michelin-starred spot abruptly at the end of December 2016. In a sense, then, this weekend’s event is a revival of sorts — a pop-up restaurant within Aspen’s original pop-up restaurant. Guided by Chefs Club Aspen executive chef-inresidence Todd Slossberg and team, Shuman will prepare a special tasting menu highlighting Betony favorites

with a Rocky Mountain twist. First up: a warming concoction based on whatever Shuman finds available and inspirational when he arrives. “I like to start off by sipping a great broth, tea, or infusion — something hot,” Shuman explains. “This changes all the time at [Betony] based on what’s available. Sometimes it’s mushroom or potato or a vegetable or meat—in essence, a consommé. It gets your body ready to receive food.” Next the Eleven Madison Park alum will present a sculptural salad of radicchio tardivo, the milder, curled-finger-shaped cousin of bitter radicchio, with roasted and steamed beets seasoned with vinegar and olive oil — the vegetables layered over a schmear of Robiola Bosina, a soft sheep’s milk cheese. “I like to spread the cheese on the bottom of plate, using it as a base for the roasted beets and then build the salad up from there,” Shuman says. Fresh basil lends a bright, herbaceous bite to balance the radicchio tardivo. Roasted duck comprises the main course, using fowl aged 10 days, which “dries out the skin and gives the meat a nice tanginess,” Shuman says. Based on the chef’s original squab dish, the bird is cooked alongside chestnuts and prunes; its bones, jus, and liver reduced into a rich sauce spiced with nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and black pepper. The meat is plated simply with cognac-glazed prunes, the roasted chestnuts, and a crispy chestnut tuile, all of it showered with sweet fluff from raw chestnuts grated over a Microplane. Shuman’s signature dish on the regular Chefs Club menu will be offered in addition to the tasting menu (or as a dessert substitution): nutty, aged, alpine-style Pleasant Ridge Reserve from Wisconsinbased Uplands Cheese Company, cooked inside a baguette-style roll alongside alfalfa and red clover hay and served with fruit marmalade. “Cheesemaker Andy Hatch is the type of guy who, if the cows aren’t

eating great grass, he’s not gonna make cheese, he’ll sell the milk,” Shuman says. “I love the idea that the grass becomes the milk becomes the cheese, and that no matter what life throws at you, you do the right thing. We’re honoring this by baking his cheese with the different types of grasses that the cows eat.” Shuman’s tasting menu dessert ends the meal on a light note: citrus panna cotta with champagne espuma — “soft and creamy yet it sparkles,” Shuman quips. Tarragon adds an energizing element. “I love using fresh herbs in places that might surprise you — basil in an otherwise winter salad. Tarragon and citrus is a natural pairing.” Fellow 2015 Best New Chef Zoi Antonitsas from Seattle is the second chef slated to cook in the Chefs Club Aspen kitchen later this winter. Until then, diners may sample two of her signature Greek dishes: charred octopus with orzo yiouvetsi, tomato, fennel, saffron and aioli nero or ras el hanoutcrusted rack of lamb with feta, pistachio, and mint pesto.

This weekend, though, Shuman commands Chefs Club’s gleaming open kitchen. “You’re gonna see me sweating it out, but I’m relying on the team there to execute,” the chef says, crediting Slossberg and culinary director Didier Elena, on board since Chefs Club Aspen launched. “That’s what being a chef is all about: you teach, train, and share ideas, then you work with the team. Whenever you’re in someone else’s kitchen, it’s a collaboration.” Just as Shuman is animated about the auspicious timing of his return — “This will be my first time in Aspen in its snow/winter glory…I’m excited to maybe get out on skis for the first time” — he’s enthusiastic about how the Chefs Club formula serves the community here. “It’s an awesome opportunity for the people not just vacationing in Aspen but who live there year round,” Shuman says. He’s right, we’re a lucky bunch. After all, how many Aspen-born restaurants have spawned offshoots in New York City, not the other way around? amandaraewashere@gmail.com

HAPPY HOUR AT HOME? Sometimes, there’s more to a good Libation that a mouth-watering photo and easy-to-follow recipe. This news story, which recently came over the wire, is one such instance. It caught our attention, and we figured our readers might be curious too. Thus, the latest on a new booze maker ... Keurig, the maker of single-cup coffee machines, says it is teaming up with beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev to build an at-home booze maker. The companies said Jan. 6 that they hope to create a product that could whip up beer, cocktails and spirits. AB InBev, based in Belgium, makes Budweiser, Stella Artois and other beers. Waterbury, Vermont-based, Keurig Green Mountain tried to grow beyond coffee makers before, but its Keurig Kold at-home soda makers sold poorly and were discontinued in June after less than a year on the market. Keurig says it will use technology from the Kold machine to develop the alcohol maker with AB InBev. turning this page over to you. Email jmcgovern@ aspentimes.com with what cocktails you’re mixing, what libations you’re drinking, what tastes have tempted your tastebuds and we’ll share them with our readers. Cheers!

BEST OF AIRLINE IN-FLIGHT WINE PROGRAMS AIRLINES throughout the world are beginning to realize the journey begins the moment a traveler steps foot into the cabin of a plane. Being in a seat for long periods of time is viewed as opportunities to not only entertain, but to educate and created returning guests. So travelers don’t dread flying, especially long-haul itineraries, airlines are improving experiences. AMIEE WHITE BEAZLEY One way airlines have improved the inflight experience is through expanded and enhanced wine programs, particularly in First and Business classes. From on-board sommeliers, to access to small producers, airlines are making flying a five-star experience once again.

ETIHAD AIRWAYS Etihad’s uber exclusive The Residence — featuring a three bedroom suite — beverage menu is based on that of First Class but

can be altered according to the specific tastes of The Residence guests, including bringing aboard their favorite wine or vintage. To handle the best wine, the Etihad Butler, who attends to those in The Residence, is been trained at the Savoy Butler Academy in London, which includes wine and beverage service. In First and Business classes, Etihad offers wines selected by a team of independentlyqualified sommeliers.

shy away from lesser known styles and vintages. When Virgin launched its new Dreamliner 787 aircrafts, they began serving sparkling wine from English winery Hambledon Vineyard. Grown and produced in Hampshire, Meon Hill Grand Reserve was specifically selected to compliment the cabin pressure and humidity of the 787 cabin and has been found to stay bubbly for longer.

Under the guidance of Australian celebrity chef, Neil Perry, Qantas First Class travelers enjoy a choice of 12 main courses, or an eight-course tasting menu made with sustainable and locally sourced produce, paired with wine and served by Qantas’ trained cabin staff. Wine, Champagne and spirits selected for flights and lounges are made by The Qantas Rockpool Sommeliers, a new team of somms and mixologists from Perry’s Rockpool Restaurant

The breadth of Virgin’s wine Upper Class program is broad and far reaching. In addition to wine perks like pairings and guided wine tasting tutorials via the inflight entertainment system, onboard wine selections are made by a tasting panel lead by Berry Bros. and Rudd’s wine director Mark Pardoe, a Master of Wine. Upper Class wine selections change every quarter, with three diverse reds and three whites chosen to complement menu changes, and Virgin doesn’t

Group. The Group includes the Head of Sommeliers Australia, David Lawler, and one of only two Master Sommeliers in Australia, Sebastian Crowther.

ANA For the First Class wine list, it takes a team of 40 certified sommeliers, wine novices and Master of Wine Ned Goodwin six months and a two-day blind tasting to choose the 300 red and white wines served. Apart from choices originating in ANA destinations such as the U.S., France, and Germany, wines from other countries are selected to make the airline’s wines list unique and varied such as Tyrrell’s Wines Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2010 from Australia.

PUTTING THE‘FUN’ IN EDUCATION FUNDING AEF CELEBRATES 25 YEARS BY HONORING ITS FOUNDERS AT ANNUAL FLAMINGO GALA BY JEANNE McGOVERN

DESPITE ASPEN’S REPUTATION AS A WORLD-CLASS RESORT WITH PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT strive to meet the same standard, the stark truth remains: Colorado ranks 42nd in the nation for per pupil funding. This creates a gap in what our children — from their first day of kindergarten until they graduate high school — are offered on their path to educational success. In Aspen, things are a bit different. The Aspen Education Foundation, founded 25 years ago, serves as the nonprofit fundraising arm for the Aspen School District. As such, its mission is simple: “(AEF) partners closely with school administrators and the community to identify and fund in-school or beyond classroom programs across our five schools.” In 2015-16, AEF funded 14 programs and 10 positions. Since 1991, the foundation has invested more than $11 million in the local schools. Here is a glimpse at how it all began, with a nod to t

Art teachers Rae Lampe and Carole Stewart commissioned their students to create drawings of flamingos and the results were so impressive that Katie Viola used them for the Flamingo brand this year. See all the Flamingo student art at www.aspenaef.org.

AS THE ASPEN EDUCATION FOUNDATION celebrates its 25th anniversary, it’s only natural to compare the organization’s roots with where it is today. But in many ways, the stories that have been told for more than two decades are much the same: “We are passionate about our children,” says current Executive Director Brooke Bedingfield, who, along with the AEF board and a cadre of volunteers, is again staging the organization’s gala fundraising event on Jan. 14. “We recognize the need for the community to help support our students; AEF allows us to do just that.” In fact, AEF supports our local students and so much more. Consider the fact that the funding gap for the 2016-17 school year is $1,300 per student and it’s easy to see why the drive to raise money for the local public schools remains strong. Cherished programs ranging from Outdoor Education and Read With Me to International Baccalaureate and Robotics would likely fade away without AEF’s support. And this, say the organization’s co-founders — who are among the honorees at the 2017 Flamingo benefit — has long been AEF’s driving force. “Obviously, the world has changed a lot since 1991. Technology has brought many opportunities, along with program and funding challenges; 25 years ago, as with today, the state wasn’t providing the level of funding needed to support excellence in education,” says Jeanette Darnauer, who helped found the Aspen Education Foundation with Kathy Hegberg and Peter Van Domelen. “While we’ve always focused on

ASPEN TIMES FILE PHOTOS (TOP) AND COURTESY PHOTO

building critical thinking skills, today’s schools are able to deliver even greater academic, scientific and experiential opportunities that give students an extraordinary education, and the tools to excel in the real world.” Hegberg agrees: “When we created the foundation, there was little participation from the community in the schools, and hence, little awareness of the financial complexities, let alone educational programs,” she says. “Our goal was to create a support system for the school district, both financial and community. I think we were successful in getting that started. “When I was doing the research on other similar foundations at the time (without the Internet!) I discovered three other education funds in Santa Fe, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. They were attempting to create the same support. In looking them up now online, they are alive and well, and offer financial support along with community involvement programs. I believe AEF has been successful in doing the same.” And at this year’s fundraising event, Bedingfield and others have their sights set high. They also remain steadfast in the principles on which AEF was founded on and carries forward today: • We believe that all K-12 Aspen public school students benefit from the generosity of families and members of the community. • We believe that it is our collective responsibility to build on the level of excellence that we have come to expect. • We believe that the entire Aspen community benefits from a strong public education system.

THE HONOREES: Why AEF matters — and always will ...

“FOR A SOCIETY TO FUNCTION WELL, ITS CITIZENS MUST BE INFORMED, EDUCATED AND INVOLVED. THE SCHOOLS OF TODAY MUST KEEP UP WITH THE DEMANDS OF TOMORROW. AEF’S SUPPORT IS A KEY COMPONENT IN FOSTERING BRIGHT, INQUIRING MINDS WHO WILL HELP TO BUILD THIS NEW WORLD. TO MAINTAIN THE EXCELLENCE IN OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM THAT OUR COMMUNITY DEMANDS AND OUR WORLD NEEDS, WE NEED TO CONTINUE SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS LIKE AEF WITH OUR TIME, TALENTS AND DOLLARS. IT TAKES A VILLAGE.” – JEANETTE DARNAUER, AEF CO-FOUNDER

“GENERALLY, THE SCHOOLS ARE DEALING WITH WHAT COMES FROM OUTSIDE. WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS MUCH HIGHER LEVELS OF STRESS IN OUR KIDS, ALONG WITH HEIGHTENED USE OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. SINCE THESE ISSUES CONTINUE, IT IS INCUMBENT ON THE SCHOOLS TO PROVIDE YET MORE PROGRAMS TO ADDRESS THEM. IT IS ALSO THE COMMUNITY’S RESPONSIBILITY TO BE INVOLVED AND SUPPORT THESE EFFORTS. I WOULD SAY THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE OF BOTH.” – KATHY HEGBERG, AEF CO-FOUNDER “THE EDUCATIONAL LANDSCAPE CONTINUES TO BE CHALLENGED BY STATE FUNDING THAT IS NOT ADEQUATE TO MEET OUR COMMUNITIES EDUCATIONAL GOALS. THE AEF IS SUCH A VITAL ORGANIZATION IN BRIDGING THIS GAP. NOT ONLY DOES IT RAISE BADLY NEEDED FUNDS FOR CRITICAL PROGRAMS AT THE ASPEN SCHOOL DISTRICT, BUT, THROUGH ITS BOARD MEMBERS, IT CREATES AMBASSADORS THAT ARE OUT IN THE MANY NETWORKS OF OUR COMMUNITY TELLING THE DISTRICT’S STORY.” – PETER VAN DOMELEN, AEF CO-FOUNDER

HONORING THE MOORE FAMILY

During Aspen’s quiet years, James and Alberta Moore moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1936 looking to raise a family and connect with their new community. Together they had three children who attended school in the small red brick building and were avid ski racers with the Aspen Ski Club. Jim became active in the education system as a school board member. Clearly the town was outgrowing the facility and it was apparent that the Red Brick School was too small to accommodate the growing population. Soon after Tom’s graduation from Aspen High School in 1960, Jim began considering how his family could help the school system face this growth. While there were various parcels proposed for building a new high school, the school board and the community ultimately chose the present location, and Jim donated the property in 1964. By 1967, the new high school was completed on the Maroon Creek Campus with a capacity to educate 350 students. In addition to gifting the land for the schools, Jim and Alberta donated the land for the James E. Moore pool to be constructed across the street from the high school. They believed that the kids were the future of the community. After Jim’s passing in 1991, Tom took over the legacy, committed to enriching Aspen’s educational and athletic community. While facing a difficult

decision of how to handle the family’s Maroon Creek property, Tom spent all of his time working to develop a comprehensive solution that continues to support the Aspen School District. Tom and Carolyn fought hard to build and integrate affordable teacher housing into the family’s Five Tree Project. Their vision included the gifting of the land for a badly needed new ski club facility and a chairlift to access Aspen Highlands for athletes, students, and faculty. In addition, the Moores provided and secured a

“IN CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF SUPPORTING EDUCATION IN ASPEN, I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT THIS YEAR TO HONOR PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY THAT HAVE CHANGED THE LANDSCAPE OF EDUCATION IN ASPEN OVER THE YEARS THROUGH THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS AND SERVICE.

THE ALMIGHTY AJAX CUP

MAY SELBY

CELEBRATING 80 YEARS of shaping and inspiring the lives of our valley’s youth, Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club (AVSC) is to thank for teaching generations of locals the very sports that define the Aspen Snowmass area. Through AVSC, children and teens experience the mountains in winter, build character, challenge themselves and make new friends. As the valley’s oldest and largest nonprofit for youth, AVSC counts 2,300-plus athletes in its programs today, many of whom are extended scholarships and equipment to ensure they can participate. AVSC strives to never turn a child away and provides close to a million dollars in financial aid every year. To help fund these programs and initiatives, The Audi Ajax Cup takes place every Dec. 28 on Aspen Mountain with head-to-head slalom races, each led by a professional, on the storied run of Little Nell and an apres-party to follow. In addition to the 16 Ajax Cup teams that each represent a $25,000 donation to AVSC,

the race allows participants the opportunity to join AVSC’s National Council on the spot, buy tickets to the apres celebration at Shlomo’s at the base of the race course, and bid on a trio of experiential live auction items, consistent with the experiential fun of the Audi Ajax Cup.

BLACK MIRRORS

PAINTER MARY RAMSDEN’S ‘(IN/IT)’ AT THE ASPEN ART MUSEUM IT’S BEEN IMPOSSIBLE to escape the roiling national debate in the past two months over “fake news,” about how we consume information in the iPhone age, about the cultural silos that social media has placed us in and how that selfsegregation led us to a more divided, less just, more unstable society. All along, an exhibition of new paintings by the young British artist Mary Ramsden has been sitting silently in the smallest gallery in the Aspen Art Museum, speaking precisely and incisively to the subtle ways technology warps information in 21st century. The show, which opened the weekend before Election Day and runs through Feb. 19, is worth paying attention to right now. It includes paintings that mimic the face of a smartphone, with the familiar image of a finger smudge across the surface. They offer an opaque reflection of the viewer – the same image that gave the brilliant (also British) TV show “Black Mirror” its name and which may as well be the emblem of our historical moment. These black mirrors provide a context for the bulk of the works in the show – titled “(In/It)” – which play around with notions of obscured truth, partial information and quite literally not seeing the big picture. Her paintings on wood panel offer curved lines and gestural marks that poke out from beneath geometric planes of white or sea foam green or salmon that cover dominate the canvases. These swatches of paint obscure whatever image might be beneath, offering only hints and pieces of what they’re covering up. The edges of the paintings’ frames are abrupt, suggesting they’ve been cut from a larger picture. They leave us to guess, to make assumptions, to make up whatever we might want the whole story to be (the titles sometimes nudge us to think of images that the paintings don’t: “Violet sheep,” for example).

PHOTOS BY: ANNA STONEHOUSE/THE ASPEN TIMES

“By employing the mechanics of how we experience information as mediated through technology, Ramsden draws on notions of language in its most modern form – increasingly devised to interrupt attention spans, divorced from actual source and context, yet making all of the meaningful or frivolous data available at our fingertips,” Sherry Black writes in her essay in the exhibition catalog. Black also explains that the title of “(In/It)” is inspired by a line break in the Marianne Moore poem “Poetry.” Black suggests that, like the “in/it” break in Moore’s poem, the off-kilter framing of Ramsden’s paintings and the interplay between her canvases is a riff on the dramatic effect of poetic line breaks and an attempt to do the same with visual art by lending power to of the white spaces of a gallery wall. If you make the trip to the museum to see Ramsden’s phenomenal show, do pick up the exhibition catalog. Rather than the

usual rundown of titles and dates and the impenetrable gobbledygook of an artist statement, the Aspen Art Museum has put together a fascinating (and free) publication that not only complements the show but functions as a work of an art in itself. The 28-page pamphlet pairs iPhone photos taken by Ramsdem with original poems and flash fiction by the Canadian writer Leanne Shapton. They conjure up small moments, like a man leaving a psychiatrist’s office and a child clinging to her father on the way home from a Christmas party that – like Ramsden’s photos in the book and her paintings in this show – offer but a glimpse of something much larger. atravers@aspentimes.com

INTELLIGENT EXERCISE

by KIM CURTIS for THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOOK REVIEW

‘THE LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD’ TO PIGEONHOLE Douglas Preston a true-crime author is a gross understatement of his skills as a writer. Yes, his many best-sellers with Lincoln Child are fun, suspenseful romps chronicling the adventures of an FBI agent. But he’s also an extremely capable investigator who, along with Italian journalist Mario Spezi wrote 2008’s fabulous “The Monster of Florence: A True Story,” a spellbinding work of nonfiction about a series of grisly murders in Tuscany. This time, the subject matter is equally compelling — an ancient and sacred city in Honduras known as the White City or the Lost City of the Monkey God. For generations, indigenous people passed along stories of ancestors who fled there to escape Spanish invaders and that anyone who enters would get sick and die. In 2012, Preston joined a group of scientists, archaeologists, photographers

and film producers who traveled to La Mosquitia, an unexplored and dangerous region of Central American jungle. They faced floods, mountains, jaguars, deadly snakes, disease-carrying insects and other inherent challenges. They brought along a new piece of NASA-owned laser technology known as LIDAR, or Light Detection and Ranging, which confirmed a sprawling metropolis inhabited around the same time as the Mayan civilization in modern-day Mexico. Their intent was to map the city as well as explore and protect its rumored riches. Preston unspools the history of the White City, the expedition and the journey itself in detail — sometimes in too much detail. The book originated as an article in National Geographic and it may have been a better story if kept restrained to magazine size. Lengthy discussions of scientific equipment, aircraft, landing zones and, later, infectious diseases, while fascinating on

their own, feel somewhat superfluous and ill-placed. The latter especially — an in-depth history of smallpox and other deadly diseases that systematically wiped out indigenous peoples — was a compelling read, but its contribution at the end of this book felt out of place. It’s possible that part of the dissatisfaction at the conclusion of this tale was rooted in the dissatisfaction in the expedition itself. While a remarkably important scientific discovery, the team’s chief archaeologist decreed nothing could be excavated from the site at the time, which feels anticlimactic to the general public — and readers.
