ASPEN Eva Hogan joins the new Limelight Lodge in Aspen as the director of sales. Family-owned for more than 50 years, the Limelight Lodge reopened Thanksgiving week, after two years of construction. A Roaring Fork Valley resident since 1986, Hogan has experience in the resort hospitality industry. Most recently, Hogan was the director of sales at The Timberline in Snowmass Village. She has worked with St. Regis Aspen Resort, The Snowmass Club and in the international sales department at Aspen Skiing Co. Hogan is a native of Germany and current resident of Snowmass Village. The Limelight Lodge originally opened in the 1950s as a dinner theater and three-room lodge called the Ski & Spur. Renamed the Limelite Lodge after a band who called its stage home, the inn became an iconic home-away-from-home in Aspen. Family-owned since 1962, the Paas and Woolery families were instrumental in fostering its casual, family-friendly reputation. Over the years, the Paas and Woolery families acquired the neighboring Ski-Vu Lodge, Deep Powder Lodge and Snowflake Inn. The new 126-room Limelight Lodge is located on the corner of Cooper Avenue and Monarch Street, across from Wagner Park.
