Don’t Let Hip or Knee pain Keep You Down What do these locals and dozens of others have in common? They were all living with the debilitating effects of a degenerative hip or knee. Pain was causing them to miss out on doing the things they loved, and they decided to do something about it. They all had joint implant surgery with the advanced MAKOplasty® system, meaning recovery time was decreased. Now they’re up, not down. Up for skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and everything else they’d been missing.

Ask how MAKOplasty® can relieve your hip and knee pain. Call 970.925.4141

MAKOplasty ® is powered by the surgeon-controlled RIO® robotic arm system enabling advanced treatment options for more accurate hip and knee implant placement.

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any hip or knee surgical procedures, including MAKOplasty.® Your doctor can explain these risks and help determine if MAKOplasty ® is right for you.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with STEWART OKSENHORN

POPULAR MUSIC AMONG THE BEST shows ever staged during the nine-year run of Belly Up Aspen was Medeski, Martin & Wood, who played the club in March of 2011. Helping to drive the trio’s urgent, avant-jazz beat was bassist Chris Wood. When Wood returns to Belly Up this week, the music will have little to do with MMW’s instrumental funk. On Sunday, Dec. 8, he appears as a member of the Wood Brothers, a rootsy folkblues combo that spotlights the other Wood brother, the Southern-accented singer, songwriter and guitarist Oliver. Listen close, though, and you hear bits of the groove in Chris’ exceptional bass playing. And on the new album “The Muse,” Chris also adds harmonica, guitar, mandolin and vocals, to help create a warm but modern update to Delta blues. There should be enough funk in there to make the upcoming show a bit of a dance party.

The Wood Brothers, with bassist Chris Wood, play Sunday, Dec. 8 at Belly Up.

CURRENTEVENTS VISUAL ARTS Carbondale’s SoL Theatre Company makes its Aspen debut with “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” playing Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8, at the Aspen High School Black Box Theatre. The musical also plays Dec. 13-15 at the Orchard in Carbondale.

Mike Otte’s “Three Cedars,” oil on canvas, is part of the exhibition Light, featuring work by resident artists at the Red Brick Center for the Arts. The show opens at the Red Brick with a reception on Thursday, Dec. 5.

NEARLY TWO DECADES AGO, Aspenites had a choice: sell the Red Brick building, pocket the money, and let the prime piece of West End real estate become home to a few mostly empty second homes; or turn the former public school into the Red Brick Center for the Arts. In retrospect, this was truly one of those soul-of-Aspen moments, and it’s hard to determine exactly what the results say about our community values: It was by only a three-vote margin that the Red Brick Center for the Arts was created. Fortunately, majority rules, and now it would be interesting to see if anyone confesses to voting against the Red Brick. The building is home to most of Aspen’s arts and public-service nonprofits, a couple handfuls of local working artists, and one of the most vibrant galleries in town. The latest exhibition should be something of a celebration. Light, a group show featuring the 14 resident Red Brick artists, opens with a reception on Thursday, Dec. 5.

THEATER THE CARBONDALE-BASED SoL Theatre Company, founded nearly two years ago by Logan Carter, makes its first venture all the way upvalley with its production of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” Everyone knows the song and the character, but less familiar is the zaniness of the story, which features an elf who wants to be a dentist, and a collection of misfit toys. All of them, like Rudolph, are trying to find their place in the world. SoL’s production, directed by Jennifer Michaud, plays Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8, at Aspen High School’s Black Box Theatre, then moves to The Orchard in Carbondale, Dec. 13-15.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with JOHN COLSON

Lawyers, pot and ethics — is this an SNL skit or what? THE HEADLINE WAS so filled with rich irony, it was all I could do to keep from giggling hysterically. “Lawyers who advise marijuana vendors warned over ethics,” blared the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel one day last week. I had to look again, then go online to look some more. Lawyers warning other lawyers about ethics? Is there a punchline to that, is this a skit on Saturday Night Live, or what? I guess not, because the article, in deadpan seriousness, informed readers that some committee of the Colorado Bar Association had issued a “nonbinding opinion” that attorneys advising marijuana vendors stood a chance of being “sanctioned” by the state’s attorney regulation office. And, all kidding aside, the issue seems to be a source of concern for attorneys in Colorado as well as Washington, after voters in the two states legalized the cultivation, sale and use of pot by anyone over 21 years of age. A perusal of websites showed that the issue has been bouncing around in the courts and in the blogosphere for a month or more, and that many of the states that have legalized medical marijuana are wrestling with it, too. And, it turns out, what attorneys are truly hoping for is a ruling by the respective state Supreme Courts that it’s OK for lawyers to advise clients in the pot business. In Washington, according to a Nov. 5 report by The Associated Press, the state bar “declined to endorse” a proposal from the King County Bar Association (home to the city of Seattle) for just that type of ruling from the state high court. That prompted King County Bar President Anne M. Daley to advise, in return, that preventing attorneys from advising clients on the thicket of complex legal issues involved would in effect be telling state-sanctioned businesses that they are on their own. “The voters of Washington did not endorse this approach,” Daley dryly concluded. Among other things, I find it interesting that this issue apparently did not come up when states began legalizing medical marijuana more

than a decade ago. Perhaps the legal beagles were thinking that the numbers of medical marijuana patients never got all that huge, whereas the potential numbers of recreational marijuana users might conceivably involve half the population of any given state, which could translate into a lot of money in billings for a lot of law firms. According to a Gallup poll in October, more than 58 percent of Americans now support legalization for adults, and roughly 42 percent of Americans aged 12 years or older have smoked the stuff, according to a federal report. Given that 20 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, it is not outlandish to predict that other jurisdictions will follow the lead of Colorado and Washington in the near future. So, you might ask, what is to be gained by making criminals not only out of law-abiding pot sellers, growers and cookie-makers, but of the lawyers who advise the businesses that provide a product that so many people seem to view as beneficial, at the least, and life-enhancing for countless medical marijuana patients? This is one of those cases when the general public seems to be way ahead of the government, even as state and federal drug agencies cynically and viciously ruined the lives of hundreds of thousands of people for selling or using a substance that now is legal in nearly half the states of the Union. Our nationally idiotic anti-pot policies were founded on the racist beliefs and fierce law-enforcement ambitions of one man back in the 1930s, Harry J. Anslinger, the nation’s first drug czar. Building on racist fears of the majority white population, using outright lies and unsupported stereotypes, he made marijuana a nasty word in the U.S. lexicon, just to ensure himself a job. The unfortunate thing is, a lot of the people fooled by his bigoted rantings remain in positions of power and can continue to thwart a commonsense approach to all this. We can only hope they will listen to reason.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Aspen Mountain in 1938 featured a beginner/ intermediate slope (shown at the bottom of this photo), a racing trail (above), and a boat towline (to the right).

GIVING ASPEN SKIING A LIFT DURING EARLY DEVELOPMENT of uphill conveyance for skiers, Aspen experimented with its own version: a boat tow. Most fledgling American ski areas offered rope tows, the first in 1934. Sun Valley installed the first chairlift in 1936, but it was a few years before any other ski area attempted the contraption. Aspen constructed its Rube Goldberg-type lift in the summer of 1937. Andre Roch laid out a racing trail and advised Aspen Ski Club members as they cut it with the purpose of hosting major races. He also told them to clear a beginner/intermediate area at the bottom of the mountain. Assigning the racecourse the highest priority, club members cut trees on Sundays and in the evening hours after work during the summer of 1937. Late in the summer they began construction of the boat-tow lift. Most club members had descended from mining families who were accustomed to using hoisting equipment to raise material from below ground to the surface. Some such machines had been built within inclined tunnels, where specially designed ore cars were pulled uphill, riding on tracks, by a motor-powered cable. When it came time to hoist skiers uphill, atop snow, club members applied the same principles. When fundraisers for a lift raised more hope than dollars, club members scavenged parts from local mines. From the Midnight, they dismantled

and removed two head frames and pulleys from dormant shafts. The frames had been engineered for much

and stopped the lift just as a two-car gondola system works at some ski areas today. Each boat carried as many

THE BOATLIFT WORKED AS PLANNED WITH ONE EXCEPTION: A GULLY BISECTED THE TOWLINE THAT RAN FROM THE MOUNTAIN BASE UP TO THE BOTTOM OF PRESENT-DAY CORKSCREW. A WOOD BRIDGE PROVIDED A SAFE CROSSING MOST OF THE TIME, BUT OCCASIONALLY BOATS WOULD SLIP OFF THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE, DUMPING SKIERS INTO THE GULCH. heavier loads, so no one doubted they would work. They also scrounged a half-inch cable, and re-converted an old truck that had powered a sawmill to provide horsepower to pull the cable. The final components were “boats”: two boat-shaped sleds, built of heavy mine planks, with a yoke attachment connecting to the cable. The simple system pulled one boatload of skiers up the mountain while dragging the other (empty) boat downhill. The operator started

D e c e m b e r 5 - D e c e m b e r 1 1, 20 13

as 10 skiers, allowing plenty of room for the low number of skiers that used it each weekend. The boatlift worked as planned with one exception: a gully bisected the towline that ran from the mountain base up to the bottom of present-day Corkscrew. A wood bridge provided a safe crossing most of the time, but occasionally boats would slip off the edge of the bridge, dumping skiers into the gulch. The 30 ski club members

volunteered hours of their lives to make Aspen stand out among many mountain towns that vied for the fledgling ski industry. They labored throughout the throes of the Depression, when none of them had money. During the standard six-day workweek, they committed summer nights to a dream that came true. Looking back, you have to applaud the results as well as their effort. Beginning in 1936 — with neither a history of skiing nor funding for inspiration — they created a ski area (including a beginner tow) and the most challenging racecourse nationwide — from scrap. With marketing verve equal to the quality of the course, Aspen hosted the Southern Rocky Mountain Ski Association championships in 1938 and 1939, plus the national championships in 1941. While dozens of small towns competed for skiers, Aspen, in just five years, won national recognition. Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ASPEN HISTORICAL SOCIETY

ACCORDING TO THE Aspen Daily Times on Dec. 14, 1906, a holiday bazaar held by members of the Christ Church in Aspen was a huge success. “The Methodist ladies worked like beavers yesterday at the storeroom on Mill Street, where they were holding their bazaar. They served a large crowd at dinner and were busy all afternoon in the booths, selling useful articles and fancy work of various kinds. The junior league also did well at the candy-booth and the souvenir booklets were much admired and are meeting with a good sale. In the evening an excellent oyster stew was served to all comers and the waiters were kept busy attending to the large crowd. Those in charge of the bazaar reported at 9 o’clock that everything had been sold and that the enterprise had in every way been a complete success.”

GEAR of the WEEK

by BOB WARD

WORK BOOT: VASQUE TALUS ULTRADRY THE DILEMMA: You’re looking for a sturdy hiking boot that’s light and comfortable enough to wear to work in Aspen. For winter wear, it should be waterproof.

THE FIX: The Vasque Talus UltraDry.

GET IT

150

$

Vasque products are sold at Aspen’s Ute Mountaineer, Independence Run & Hike in Carbondale and Summit Canyon Mountaineering in Glenwood Springs.

WHY IT WORKS: At 2 pounds, 9 ounces, the Talus UltraDry is light enough to feel like a shoe, but the thick Vibram sole and padded mesh collar offer structure and stability for long days on the trail. NuBuck leather makes the boot both rugged and flexible. With the waterproof UltraDry layer, you can tromp safely through ankledeep snow or puddles. I’ve raked leaves, shoveled snow and hiked in this boot, and the only time my feet got wet was when I knowingly post-holed in a deep drift and snow entered the boot collar.

BONUS: The boot comes with two sets of laces, and its “heritage” look gives it old-school cred.

WINEINK

THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS A CELEBRATION OF FOOD AND WINE AT NAPA’S MEADOWOOD RESORT

THERE ARE FEW PLACES more magical for a Christmas sojourn than the California wine country. In the Napa Valley, the pace of life tapers as the vines rest between vintages and the throngs that come for summer and harvest season move on to other places. The smell of smoke hangs in the heavy air; the sun passes low in the sky, casting a winter’s light. It is a time for both celebration and relaxed contemplation. No place is better equipped for both than the Meadowood KELLY J. HAYES Resort, which annually celebrates the season by inviting 11 of the world’s most accomplished chefs to join Meadowood chef Christopher Kostow in a series of special dinners called “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Each of the 12 nights, running Dec. 6 through Dec. 21, the exquisite Restaurant at Meadowood serves as the stage as each chef, paired with a Napa Valley winemaker, produces a distinctly extraordinary meal to mark the holidays. This year’s collection of chefs includes current raves like Carlo Mirarchi of Roberta’s in Brooklyn, SPQR’s Matthew Accarrino from San Francisco, and David Kinch from Manresa in Los Gatos, Calif. James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef Southeast, Ashley Christensen, who toils in the kitchens of three Raleigh, N.C., eateries including Poole’s Diner and Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, will bring the taste of the South to Northern California. Chef Rasmus Kofoed, the winner of the 2011 Bocuse d’Or competition designating the “worlds best chef,” will wing his way from Copenhagen, Denmark, where he presides over the Michelin two-starred restaurant Geranium. And from South America, chef Rodolfo Guzman will present the flavors, techniques and foods of his native Chile. Each evening guests will also taste the labors of legendary Napa winemakers like Mike Grgich, Larry Turley and, on the final night, H. William Harlan (Bill), who will

14

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

F

pair the wines of Harlan Estate with the cuisine of Kostow, the host chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood. An interesting twist this season is the inclusion of a trio of Asianinspired chefs. Tim Cushman, who created a masterpiece in the leather district of Boston called o ya and won a Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef Award in the process, will bring his incomparable Japanese-inspired dishes to Meadowood on Dec. 11. Cushman’s single-bite dishes in a 17-course omakase at his restaurant make for one of the world’s most sublime dining experiences. His offering at Meadowood should be, well, insane. Pok Pok in Portland features the cooking of Thai-obsessed chef Andy Ricker. He will open The Twelve Days with a blockbuster pairing with the wines of Grgich Hills. Then, from New York, the guy who many say has had the greatest influence on American cuisine in the last five or so years, David Chang from Momofuku, will set up shop with the aforementioned Turley in what should be oncein-a-lifetime pairing. If you have been to Meadowood, you will never forget it. If you have not, cross something off your current bucket list and replace it with this gem located in its own tiny valley just off the Silverado Trail. Developed by Bill Harlan, proprietor of Harlan Estate, in the 1980s, Meadowood is centered around a classic lodge that has been updated with contemporary California comfort. The resort features dozens of cottages, each with the feel of an elegant private treehouse, scattered in the nooks of the surrounding hillsides. There is a par-three golf course that winds through the valley, ringed by towering trees. A perfect, impossibly green croquet pitch glistens in the morning dew that dissolves with the rising sun. An enticing health spa sits adjacent to a steaming pool that early each morning hosts many of the most

well-known names in the wine world who come for their daily workout. And, at the front gate, the vineyards of the Napa Valley Reserve remind you that you are in one of the world’s premier wine regions. Yet, with all this on offer, it is the kitchens of The Restaurant at Meadowood that may have brought the property the most acclaim. Since Kostow arrived on property in 2008, and a remodel was completed this past year, it has become one of the most talked about restaurants in America. Awarded three-stars by Michelin in 2011, it is a tough ticket

indeed. And the Twelve Days dinners require the fortune of three kings to attend. Prices for individual seatings begin at $395 for the meal, with chef’s table seats running $750. There are lodging and dinner packages available starting at $1,315 per couple that includes rooms (you’ll want to stay) and dinner for two. To book a dinner or get more information, email reservations@meadowood.com or call 855-953-2435. In keeping with the spirit of the season, Meadowood makes a charitable contribution of $2,000 in honor of each of the 12 chefs, plus 20 percent of every dinner ticket sold, to a pair of charities that benefit children in need in the Napa Valley. They have already raised in excess of $230,000 for various charities in the five previous years of The Twelve Days of Christmas. A seat at the table is the best Christmas gift one could ever hope for. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soon-tobe-designated appellation of Old Snowmass with his wife, Linda, and a black Lab named Vino. He can be reached at malibukj@aol.com.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

PAIR OF HEARTS FOLD COMMUNITY KITCHEN BRINGS SMALL BITES TO WOODY CREEK DISTILLERS HERE IN THE Roaring Fork Valley, the old adage rings true: when one door closes, another one opens. Even better is finding a cocktail waiting waiting to greet you. Fans of Fold Community Kitchen — the charming Carbondale eatery focused on local, sustainable food and known for its Fridaynight dinners, lunch, and weekend brunch AMANDA — were bummed to RAE learn that chef-owner Noela Figueroa recently shuttered the year-old operation, at least temporarily, to reformulate her goals. (As my esteemed predecessor Amiee White Beazley wrote in this very column back in May, Fold is “exactly what I’ve been hoping to find in the valley: educated, innovative food in a small setting; young chefs who are willing and able to experiment.”) Meanwhile, just 10 miles away in Basalt, Woody Creek Distillers (WCD) has been pondering its own future: how to introduce food to its booze-soaked tasting room, which opened in March. Dishes served there must be prepared off-premises; any caterer to come aboard has to share the small-batch, artisanal mindset of the company, the first and only craft distillery in the country to control every element of its vodka production. Figueroa hopes to reopen Fold with limited service eventually, but for now she aims to ramp up catering and production of prepared foods. Perfect timing, then, to collaborate with WCD: Fold unveils its “farm-to-table, eclectic American” menu of small plates at the distillery on Dec. 6 from 2 to 8 p.m. “Local products, everything made from scratch, preserves and pickles... it’s that perspective we both have, which is based on craftsmanship,” Figueroa says. “Everything will change, depending on what we can get our hands on seasonally.” For now, Figueroa is assembling a series of snack boards meant to share among two to three people (or make a hearty meal for one).

All feature an impressive array of homemade goodies, such as a sampler with pretzel bites, deviled eggs with bacon jam, spiced nuts, warm olives, and a choice of braised lamb, three-onion or apple-bacon hand pies, made with vodka-infused crust ($17). Classic French charcuterie showcases homemade pork rillette, smoked Rocky Mountain trout, Olympic Provisions salami nola and chorizo rojo, prosciutto and pickled watermelon ($20); housecured gravlax of the week (beet-root, dill) is made with WCD vodka and accompanied by pumpernickel toast, capers, pickled red onions and flavored cream cheese ($18). A favorite local delicacy, Avalanche goat cheese, stars on another board ($18), along with preserves, pickles, crackers and crostini — all homemade. Pickle fiends will want to feast on a briny smorgasbord of pickled garlic, turnips, radishes, carrots and sauerkraut, traditional sweet and New York sour pickles, salmon escabeche, crostini and fava bean-mint spread ($19). “I grew up canning and preserving with my grandmother; we bring that into the food we do,” says Figueroa, a West Coast native. “You name it, we can do it.” Sweet and savory chutneys and simple condiments with complex flavors recall the careful preparation that drew diners to Fold; a Sunday brunch board with baked goods will join the ranks soon. As Figueroa is known for keeping an eye toward sweet treats to cap a meal, Fold’s dessert board ($15) presents up to 10 miniature confections at once, such as ricotta-date cake, bourbon-coffee black walnut tartlet and chocolate pot de crème. “We are into using high-quality, locally sourced products in our spirits, and that goes hand-in-hand with food as well,” says Woody Creek Distillers hospitality manager Tracey Snow. “That’s the thing about this valley: people wanna know what they’re eating, and where their spirits come from.” WCD put Basalt on the craftspirits map in March 2013, when the 10,000-square-foot facility launched with its signature potato vodka,

crafted from mountain spring water and tubers grown on co-founders Pat and Mary Scanlan’s ranch in Woody Creek. (The vodka, also the brainchild of co-founder Mark Kleckner, is distributed throughout Colorado, in Kansas, Tennessee and beyond.) WCD Reserve vodka — available for purchase only at the tasting room — is distilled from heirloom Stobrawa potatoes, which hail from Poland. In fact, WCD is the first in North America to farm the variety. The distillery also produces other spirits made from crops grown in Colorado: bourbon-style four-grain spirit, gin, rye whiskey, apple brandy and Olathe corn white whiskey, all of which pour at the tasting room, which is open Tuesday through Sunday, 2 to 8 p.m. Distribution deals for those are in the works. Though the tasting room is unable to prepare food — hence the catering engagement with Fold — all alcohol served must be produced onpremises. So, bar manager Ryan Snow — Tracey’s son and a culinary school graduate poached from The Pullman in Glenwood Springs — is concocting

Chef Noela Figueroa

his own flavor enhancers to fashion classic cocktails. Snow’s Sazerac, for instance, features homemade absinthe bitters and star anise syrup; he’s toying with the idea of creating a coffee liqueur à la Kahlua to mix into White Russians. Snow’s cocktail menu is layered, playful and smacks of familiar foods: Smoke on the Water blends WCD rye whiskey with house-made tobacco bitters, apricot preserves, lemon and agave; the Mandarin Milk Punch mixes WCD Olathe corn white whiskey with milk, honey, five-spice syrup and other aromatics. “People think of pairing wine and food, but spirits go well with food also,” says Tracey Snow, who is working toward a degree in sustainable cuisine at Colorado Mountain College. “It will be a lot of fun to educate people on that.” The woodsy, modern tasting lounge at Woody Creek Distillers is a certainly good place to start. “A lot of people come in and have a cocktail, but then they leave because they’re hungry,” Snow adds. Not anymore: Fold Community Kitchen has joined the party. Write to Amanda Rae: amandaraewashere@gmail.com

It’s only natural, then, that presentation platters are crafted in the valley, too. Carbondale-based woodsman Brad Reed Nelson of Board by Design — which outfitted the cool rustic interior of Fold — shapes sleek wooden cutting boards to showcase Fold’s artisanal snacks, which pair perfectly with smallbatch cocktails at Woody Creek Distillers tasting room (pictured, this page), beginning Dec. 6. “It creates an atmosphere,” Fold’s Noela Figueroa says of the trifecta. “People are meeting over food and alcohol, nibbling and tasting. It cultivates community.”

WINTER MAPLE MARTINI I am back! I took a little break from drinking libations, but then I was brought to The White House Tavern for a mindblowing French dip — and I had to dig deeper into their concept to learn who they are. They really have something going on over there, such as The White House Winter Maple Martini. Just like everything on the menu, this drink leaves you wanting more. Run don’t walk — the flavors in this drink made my mouth sing. Gunilla Asher is publisher of The Aspen Times.

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by BARBARA PLATTS

Having it all in Aspen isn’t nearly as easy as it looks

NOTORIOUSLY UNBALANCED A LIFE BURIED DEEP IN ASPEN

ASPEN, A TOWN WHERE a mimosa is practically required with eggs and toast at breakfast, an open bar is present at every evening event, and any physical feat I am thrilled to have just conquered has been done, I soon realize, by someone else — twice, in a row, in a blizzard, blindfolded. I grew up skiing in Aspen, but when BARBARA I moved here fullPLATTS time a year ago, my impression of the community changed drastically. Aspen feels like a mountain town on steroids, with more social and physical demands than I ever encountered during my college years in Boston, especially now that the season is in full swing. People here work hard and play hard, then skin 3,000 vertical feet or hike the most technical route of a 14er. The town never stops, and for me, where the grass is always greener in the next yard, I feared I

In order to have it all as a young professional in Aspen, I would have to follow in the tracks of those who post-holed before me: The Aspenites who also moved here in their 20s. “What I always put first is my health,” said Mark Joseph, a local product designer who moved to Aspen when he was 22 years old. “If something doesn’t make you feel good, then don’t do it. Start with being healthy, and everything else will fall into place. Then you have the energy to do all of these

careful never to overdo it. But is ordering a fourth glass of wine on a school night, calling in sick to ski on a powder day, or working until the early hours of the morning overdoing it? “There are plenty of distractions and temptations and it’s easy to go a little too big in Aspen, both in the sports world and the nighttime world,” said Art Burrows, the lead designer and founder of Ajax Design. “It’s important to find a core group of supportive friends and meaningful work.” Burrows, now having lived in

Aspen for more than 30 years, said it took him close to a decade to figure out a routine and a balance that worked for him. I thought this problem was specific to now — to the millennial generation — but these guys and many others understand it. The challenge of finding balance in Aspen is timeless. Do the aspects of life: work, fun and health have to be unrelated or are they symbiotic, each feeding and relying on the other two? There may not be any exact formula that answers the question, but knowing the challenge is a start. And luckily, if I am like Burrows, I have nine more years to figure it out. Check, please.

THE ART & SOUL OF THE SEASON ASPEN’S CULTURAL SCENE COMES ALIVE IN WINTER by STEWART OSKENHORN

T

ired of the quiet of offseason? Basking in the quiet of offseason? Indifferent to the quiet of offseason? No matter what your take on the quiet, things are about to change for the busier and louder. Winter is upon us, and with it various arts organizations are cramming in events virtually everywhere you look (downtown parks, bookstores, churches and community centers, along with clubs, theaters, museums and galleries). Take a final deep, slow, autumn breath and say goodbye to offseason. The winter culture season is upon us. And it might get loud.

T HE F F TU S W E N Aspen Choral Society, Handel’s Messiah, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7, St. Mary Church, and Sunday, Dec. 8, Snowmass Chapel & Community Center Someone say “hallelujah” — the 35-year-old tradition of a choir singing Handel’s beloved Messiah (and its familiar “Hallelujah” chorus) carries on. This was not a given, not after the death in March of Ray Adams, who founded the Aspen Choral Society in the ’70s and conducted the concerts ever since. But shortly after Adams’ death, an energized Choral Society board announced that they had found a successor in Paul Dankers, the head of the music program at the Snowmass Chapel. The Messiah is, improbably, in expansion mode, with the addition of a performance in Snowmass Village.

Deb Adams-Welles has her first solo exhibition, and it’s a big one. Her “Wall of Sound (Remix)” occupies a 21-by25-foot space at Anderson Ranch. The ideas are just as sweeping. The installation of visuals and sound explores three walls of sound from the past (the Grateful Dead’s mid‘70s concert sound system; producer Phil Spector’s recordings approach; and the ideas of ‘50s electronic music pioneer Raymond Scott), along with enlarged images from modern music software. “It’s all recreated, condensed, flipped enlarged — all the things a DJ does to make music more interesting,” Adams-Welles said, noting she had help on the sonic elements from her husband, Guy Welles, a musician. The reception coincides with Anderson Ranch’s annual Holiday Open House, when the artists open their studios. Also at the Ranch: Visiting Artist’s Lecture with installation artist Jacques Kaufmann (Feb. 25); and a Visiting Critic’s Lecture with Nora Abrams (March 25), curator of contemporary art at the Denver Art Museum. Wheeler Opera House, various events through winter months

Those attending events at the Wheeler will also be singing “hallelujah” — or at least they will be in the balcony, where a renovation adds much-needed legroom. The upgrade also brings a state-of-the-art digital projection system for film screenings. The Wheeler unveils its new balcony Dec. 21, with a performance by part-time Aspenite Burt Bacharach, who will be at the piano while a corps of singers bring to life the composer’s catalogue of distinctive hits: “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “(They Long to Be) Close to You,” “That’s What Friends Are For.” Bacharach is 85, but he often refuses to act his age; his more recent collaborators include Rufus Wainwright, Elvis Costello and Dr. Dre. Going back a way, Bacharach scored a hit with “Baby, It’s You,” which appeared on the debut album by a British band called the Beatles. Also new for the Wheeler is a live recording of The Moth (March 13), the New York-based storytelling event. The format is the story and only the story — no notes, no props, no accompaniment. And no word yet on who exactly will be appearing, though past participants have

included Salman Rushdie, Ed Koch, Molly Ringwald, Malcolm Gladwell and Sam Shepard. Wycliffe Gordon, Jan. 10-11, Jazz Aspen Snowmass’ JAS Café Downstairs@the Nell As a member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet and Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon has made a few spins through Aspen.

Gordon, winner of this year’s best trombonist award in Downbeat magazine’s critics poll, will lead his band through Hello Pops! a tribute to Louis Armstrong. Other highlights of the expanded JAS Café series: the Gypsy Allstars — Return to Rajasthan (Dec. 28-30), which traces the roots of gypsy jazz to India; Brazilian-born singer-pianist Eliane Elias (Feb. 14-16); the swing and jump blues of San Francisco’s Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers (March 21-22); and the return of Cubanborn percussionist Pedrito Martinez (April 3-4). Aspen Writers’ Foundation’s Writers in Residence program, including Brad Watson, Jan. 13, Woody Creek Community Center COURTESY PHOTO


The Aspen Writers’ Foundation’s Writers in Residence program got bumped up in significance with the recent announcement that the residencies would become a monthly occurrence. And in the last few months, the appearances by the writers have filled the Woody Creek Community Center with interested readers/listeners. Appearing January 13: Brad Watson, whose 2002 novel “The Heaven of Mercury” was a finalist for the National Book Award, and whose story collections, including 2010’s “Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives,” have been highly praised. X Games MUSIC, Jan. 25-26, Wagner Park There has always been a music component to the Winter X Games in Aspen, and even concerts in Wagner Park. But this is the first try at ticketed, open-air shows in an Aspen park, a concept that has had a few false starts in recent years. Cross your fingers. Show times are set for late afternoon, which might alleviate problems. Demand from listeners shouldn’t be a problem. ESPN, the producer of the X Games, has booked top acts as headliners: the French rock group Phoenix, who earned great attention for the release of

their fifth album, “Bankrupt!” earlier this year; and the Dutch DJ/producer Tiësto, one of the biggest draws in electronic dance music. Opening acts are DJ Axwell, and the dance duo of Matt & Kim. David Burke Kitchen, opening February New York chef David Burke expands his mini-empire to Aspen with the opening of David Burke Kitchen, a close cousin of his restaurant in the James Hotel in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood. The farm-to-table menu includes peanut butter maple bacon dates with fried grapes, pretzel crusted crab cakes, and potted duck & foie gras with citrusmaple glaze. The Kitchen, in the former Gap building at Hopkins and Galena, will be open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Amy Sillman: one lump or two, opening reception on Feb. 13, Aspen Art Museum The first museum survey of New Yorker Sillman features drawings, paintings and her first work in animated film. Also at the museum: the opening reception (Dec. 19) for the two current exhibitions — the intriguing group show Trapping Lions in the Scottish Highlands, and Holt Quentel — and

the Young Curators of the Roaring Fork exhibition, Escape (Jan. 25). The Pixies, Feb. 14, Belly Up The Boston-based alternative rock band the Pixies, led by singersongwriter Black Francis, didn’t have a long-lasting prime time; their recording years lasted only from 1987’91. They weren’t exactly huge even back then. But their legacy is strong and isn’t fading. As someone noted, the same thing that applied to the Velvet Underground applies to the Pixies: not everyone listened to them, but everyone who did went and started a band. Among those was Kurt Cobain, who said that Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was an attempt to rip off the Pixies; Nirvana used Steve Albini, who had produced the Pixies’ “Surfer Rosa” album, to produce “In Utero.” Other vocal fans have included David Bowe, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, and Bono. The Pixies’ upcoming tour has sold out good-sized halls all over Europe, where they always had their biggest following. In the U.S., they are playing theaters, with just one club date, in Aspen, marking their first local appearance.

Two more major acts making their local debuts this season: Los Angeles alternative rock band Weezer (Dec. 26-27), which had its heyday in the ‘90s with the hit songs “Buddy Holly,” “Undone — The Sweater Song” and “Island in the Sun”; and the National (Jan. 2-3), a Brooklyn-based indie rock band that has headlined festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands, and in Europe, the Roskilde Festival. Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Feb. 14-15, Aspen District Theatre The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet will dance the world premiere of a new piece by Nicolo Fonte, the eighth dance Fonte has created for the company. Beyond that, there is a new feel to the company overall, as three longtime members — Seth DelGrasso, Sam Chittenden and Katie Dehler, who tallied more than 40 years between them — have all retired in the past 18 months. The program is rounded out with Cayetano Soto’s “Beautiful Mistake” and Norbert de la Cruz’s “Fold by Fold,” both recent additions to the repertoire. The program gets an encore performance on March 29.

Aspen Film’s Academy Screenings, Dec. 23-Jan. 2, Wheeler As usual, local moviegoers have been very good this past year. How else to explain the bag of goodies that is the Academy Screenings?

Linda Lafferty, “House of Bathory,” Jan. 8, Pitkin County Library Missouri Heights writer Linda Lafferty introduces her third historical novel, “House of Bathory,” set partly in 17th century Slovakia — and partly in modern Aspen.

19 films, all considered contenders come awards season. Among those to keep a close eye on: “Her” (Dec. 26), the latest by offbeat director Spike Jonze, with the offbeat Joaquin Phoenix as a writer in a relationship with his computer’s operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson); “All Is Lost” (Dec. 29), starring Robert Redford as a man stranded at sea; and “Nebraska” (Jan. 1), Alexander Payne’s blackand-white drama starring Bruce Dern as a quiet man encountering his past and present. Also in the series: “Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine”; Sundance winner “Fruitvale Station”; the French sensual drama “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes; “12 Years a Slave”; and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.”

Savoy, Jan. 24, Aspen Gondola Plaza The Aspen Skiing Company’s Hi-Fi Concert series presents Savoy, a Boulder jam band that has transformed into a Brooklyn electro-rock act. Seems to be a good move; when they return to Colorado these days, it is often for a date at Red Rocks. Also in the free series: long-running Jamaican reggae band Black Uhuru (Feb. 15, Snowmass Base Village; Johnny Cash tribute act Cash’d Out (March 14, Aspen Gondola Plaza); Core Party, with an act to be announced (March 21, downtown Aspen); and rock band Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real (March 29, Snowmass Base Village).

genre, back when they were known as Sound Tribe Sector 9, and their mix of live and electronic sounds remains thrilling and cutting-edge. Other big dates on the Belly Up calendar: DJ/ producer Steve Aoki (Dec. 21); a DJ set by Moby (Dec. 29); a two-night stand by the artsy, ambitious Oklahoma rockers Flaming Lips (Dec. 30-31); ‘90s hitmakers Collective Soul (Jan. 15); Zappa Plays Zappa, Dweezil Zappa’s tribute to his late father, Frank (Feb. 13); and a two-night stand by rockgrass quintet the Infamous Stringdusters (Feb. 17-18). Ralph Stanley, Feb. 1, Wheeler A “farewell tour” that should probably be taken literally — Stanley is 86. Which means his sound, on banjo and vocals, is rooted in a practically ancient Appalachia, a bygone world. Also at the Wheeler: the satirical songs of the Crystal Palace Revue (two shows on Dec. 25); a New Year’s Eve party with the Delta Saints; a solo acoustic show by folksinger Keb’ Mo’ (Feb. 28); South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo (March 11); and the unique singer-pianist

Randy Newman (March 15). Aspen Laff Festival, Feb. 20-22, Wheeler The Wheeler’s comedy festival, in its fourth year, mixes a few name headliners with a bunch of rising young talent. Rob Brinker, opening reception on March 7, Quintenz Gallery Aspenite Rob Brinker’s latest move is turning his cut-paper pieces into paintings. In either medium, Brinker’s work is distinctive and eye-catching. Robert McDuffie, March 15, Harris Hall A former Aspen Music School student, violinist McDuffie still brings a youthful energy to his frequent Aspen concerts. In this performance in the Aspen Music Festival’s Winter Music series, accompanied by pianist Elizabeth Pridgen, he plays sonatas by Brahms and Beethoven. Also in the Winter Music series: pianist Joyce Yang (Feb. 13), playing a Rachmaninoff-heavy concert; and violinist Jennifer Koh (Feb. 20), playing an eclectic program of Bach, Berio and John Zorn.

VOYAGES

ESCAPE ARTIST | DENVER

THE CITY FOR THE SEASONS

THE FOUR SEASONS DENVER IS A MAGICAL PLACE TO CALL HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS EVERY DECEMBER, my family continues a holiday tradition by packing up the kids in the car and heading to the “city” for the holidays. When I was young, the destination was Manhattan; now, for my own children, it is Denver. We visit with Santa, shop Larimer Square and Cherry Creek, and take in a holiday show. Sure, Denver might have a long way to go as an international city, but it’s a city — and it’s our city. It is also one of the few times of year when we pass on staying with friends and opt for a hotel. Our criteria always include downtown location, room size (when you are with two kids and a dog, this is

28

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

F

essential) and service, service, service (because the husband and I want to enjoy the weekend as much as the kids). While there are many fine hotels in Mile High City, the addition of the Four Seasons three years ago was a huge stepping stone in Denver making its case as a city open for business and tourism. I’ve often heard this critique of the Four Seasons hotel brand: exceptional service, but sameness, muted palettes, cookie-cutter. Well, I beg to differ. Whether it’s Mexico, Costa Rica, Jackson Hole or elsewhere, every Four Seasons property I have experienced has been a wonderful complement

D e c e m b e r 5 - D e c e m b e r 1 1, 20 13

to their locations, and the Four Seasons Denver is a perfect point to my argument. High-altitude facials, gorgeous views of both downtown and the mountains, and a location within walking distance to Larimer Square, the 16th Street Mall and the Pepsi Center make it an integral part of emerging Denver. What these propertied do have in common are spectacular settings, gorgeous rooms and, most of all, incomparable service. What’s not to like? I’d say the Four Season Denver is the city’s finest hotel. Located at 14th Street and Blake, every room has a view thanks to oversized windows. Our room looked directly at the historic Water Tower, illuminated with festive holiday lights. A German Christkindl market is held in the area throughout the month, complete with

ice skating, a beer garden and vendors selling everything from handcrafted ornaments to European holiday pastries. The hotel is home to the lively Edge bar, where on this particular night, a throng of Broncos fans enjoyed an affordable and lively happy our while the game played out on large-screen TVs. There are fitness classes and a world-class spa, but most of all the Four Seasons fit the bill as a respite from the invited chaos of being in the city with the family. When we walked through the doors, the noise and the cold of downtown Denver in December was temporarily replaced with a quiet, soothing home away from home. (If you were wondering, the 102 private residences at the Four Seasons Denver are sold.) Staying there wasn’t a side note to our trip, but a part of the attraction of being in Denver. It rounded out our experience of a fullon family holiday adventure — even if just three hours from home. Whether it’s to celebrate Christmastime in the City, experience the spa or to take advantage of the “Passport to Paris” package (pairing a stay at the Four Seasons Denver with tickets to the Denver Art Museum’s latest show), or no reason at all, the Four Seasons Denver is the experience everyone says it is: exceptional.

IF YOU GO... Parade of Lights Friday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. If you’re in Denver this weekend, don’t miss the annual Parade of Lights — the signature event of downtown Denver’s holiday season. The sparkling lights, marching bands, giant balloons, majestic floats and delightful characters never cease to amaze. Spectator viewing for the parade is free all along the 2-mile route, which snakes through downtown; paid grandstand seating is available at the start of the parade route across from the City & County Building. Can’t make it to the big city for the Parade of Lights? Don’t fret. There are dozens of other holiday happenings — from Cirque Dreams Holidaze at the Buell Theatre and the TubaChristmas Concert at Skyline Park to Zoo Lights at the Denver Zoo and two fireworks displays to ring in the New Year — to get you in the spirit. Visit www.denver.org/ milehighholidays for details.

LOCAL LOWDOWN KIDS, DOGS, YOU’RE WELCOME No one feels more welcome at the Four Seasons Denver than the kids. Upon reservation, your children’s ages and names are requested, and even at check-in, they are already referring to the kids by their first names. Depending on the children’s ages, the room is outfitted with a tent, pillow and blanket. (One of my kids chose this as his nighttime sleeping arrangement) and the bathroom mirror had a welcome note to the kids, just above the built-in TV that was a bonus to watch during evening baths. Extras like soft bathrobes, children’s menus and a PlayStation (to use with parent’s permission, of course) solidifies the next generation’s allegiance to the stellar service and quality of this impeccable Four Seasons’ property. December rates begin at $305/night www.fsdenver.com

The SOCIAL SIDE of TOWN

AEF FLAMINGO A-GO-GO HOMECOMING was the theme for the 2013 Flamingo A-Go-Go party given a couple of weeks ago at the St. Regis Hotel by the Aspen Education Foundation. People came as Homecoming Queen, in their cheerleading outfits, in their band costumes, in their football or basketball or soccer MARY uniforms. Everyone ESHBAUGH had such fun explaining HAYES what they were in high school or college. The funds raised by AEF go toward technology and reading specialists, the college counseling department, for music and arts programs and more. There were so many wonderful parents, community members and school faculty present...I will run more photos of the event next week. The December issue of Sunset Magazine includes a great article and photos about Cloud Nine Restaurant, up on the mountain, at Highlands. It also includes many favorite recipes from the restaurant. Undercurrent...If there is one constant in life...that is change.

BOOK REVIEW

‘THE SEVENTYMILE KID’ MANY READERS KNOW THAT, 100 years ago, the Hudson Stuck expedition successfully summited Mount McKinley, North America’s highest peak. But fewer are aware of the integral role played by the expedition’s most experienced outdoorsman, Harry Karstens, who went on to become the first superintendent of Mount McKinley National Park, later renamed Denali. In “The Seventymile Kid: The Lost Legacy of Harry Karstens and the First Ascent of Mount McKinley,” Alaskan author Tom Walker sets the record straight, offering a fresh look at both the historic climb and the life of a remarkable pioneer. Karstens’ story has all the elements of a classic Western saga. Born to a working-class Chicago family, he left home at 17 to work as a cowboy on the Northern Plains. Two years later, he traveled to the Canadian Yukon, by GARY CEE | edited by WILL SHORTZ

outline previous attempts at the mountain provide crucial context for understanding the climbers’ achievement. Walker clearly admires Karstens, but he doesn’t gloss over the man’s shortcomings: a coarse personality, hypercritical of himself and others. Karstens, he concludes, isn’t unique in his trail-hardened ways: “He really is a sort of Jack London character come to life, a total frontiersman. At the same time, maybe he’s not so special. Many other pioneers were working just as hard as him, in the same conditions, day after day, and that is what amazes me.”

‘The Seventymile Kid: The Lost Legacy of Harry Karstens and the First Ascent of Mount McKinley’

where he tried in vain to strike it rich in the gold mines. Tired of the mining towns’ chaos and violence, he headed for Alaska and lined up a government contract running mail by dog team, which is how he earned his nickname, “the Seventymile Kid.” By the age of 25, he had a reputation as one of the territory’s toughest and most capable sourdoughs. Then, in 1912, Hudson Stuck invited Karstens to join his mountaineering expedition. Walker re-creates the era with a wealth of details, showing the brutal hardships Karstens and his fellow frontiersmen faced. He pieces together the viewpoints of all the climbers, using the journals they kept during the trip. Karstens emerges as the central figure. The dramatic play-by-play account allows the reader to experience every day of the ascent from each climber’s perspective. Chapters that
