Back when the World Cup Finals were in Aspen in March, I got this great recipe for a Portillo Pisco Sour. The hook: The concept for the World Cup was created in the Portillo bar during the 1966 World Championships; the Pisco Sour is the Portillo bar specialty. And while the races have come and gone — it’s summer, finally! — the recipe resurfaced this week. The hook: Ski Portillo opens Saturday, June 24 — the Chilean ski area received feet of snow recently. Hard to imagine on these glorious summer days, but some folks are out there making turns. Cheers to them!

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.
