How long have you worked as a liftie? This is my first season.

What inspired you to come out to Aspen? I was in Yellowstone for the summer and so I wanted to do something else seasonal and I thought Aspen would be really cool, come snowboarding.

How do you stay warm working at the lift? Handwarmers and layers.

What has surprised you about Aspen? The beauty, which that’s not really surprising because I know that, but the people are really cool. Everyone that I have met has been really nice.
