Always a highlight of the winter season — especially as a cocktail writer — the Apres Ski Cocktail Classic’s Great American Pub Crawl delivered as usual. With a few excellent concoctions (Casa Tua, you got my vote) to a few easily forgettable ones (JBar, what were you thinking?) to a truly Colorado experience at Leaf and a tour around town in the Loopr bus, the 2017 edition of the crawl was the best yet. And, according to the official jury, Jimmy’s Apres Steezy, by bartender Flinn Pomeroy, was the best cocktail being served. Other award winners included: The Spicy Mango, by bartender Ricardo Leyvas at The Little Nell; Best Apres Party at Chef’s Club/St. Regis; and Best Apres Scene at Justice Snows.

Many locations on Basalt Mountain were barren as recently as two months ago. However, nutrients unlocked during the Lake Christine Fire and a wet winter have sparked a remarkable recovery. Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is leading fire ecology tours to discuss the changes.
