The Soul of American Skiing with Steve Marolt


Aspen has lots to it, so be prepared, this is longer than usual.


Starting as a mining town in the 1880s, Aspen has been legendary in the ski world for its skiing, the parties, dining, shopping and culture.  It’s a small town with a mammoth reputation due to it four mountains – Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass and Buttermilk.


Steve Marolt is a native Aspenite, together with his brother Mike, he has led over 50 ski mountaineering expeditions all overthe world skiing where no man had skied before – down 8000 meter mountains like Mt Everest in Nepal to Illimani in Bolivia, to Mustagh Atta in China.  Inducted as the first ski mountaineers into the Ski Hall of Fame in 2017.


My Aspen Favs

  • Best Breakfast - Jour de Fete - Low key and amazing breakfasts right across from the gondola

  • Best Apres - in this town - anywhere really - Aspen Mountain starting at The Little Nell and then moving to the J bar at the Jerome sounds like a plan; Highlands has the Highlands Ale House; and at Snowmass- The Limelight.

  • Best Hotel - I like the Limelight downtown and the Viewline in Snowmass

  • Dont miss - the Jerome, people watching at Little Nell


And thanks to the Grits Band for the music
