Mountain Mayhem: X Games Excitement

Katie Shapiro, Chef Lanter, Ryan Koster and Taylor Garrigon.

For the 17th edition of Winter X Games in Aspen, held from Jan. 25 to 28, the center of the action was concentrated at Buttermilk with the world’s best action sports, music and festival experience. However, there was plenty of action on the social front in town with concerts, pop-up shops, parties and more. Among the festivities of note, PAX Labs hosted a VIP après-ski event for media and influencers on Friday, Jan. 26. Staged at Kemo Sabe’s new private bar upstairs, guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers in the Western setting, and had an opportunity to meet people in the cannibus industry — both locally and from the Front Range. Guests departed with PAX product samples and a bit more information about what’s coming down the pipeline — no pun intended — in the cannabis marketplace in regards to technology and general developments.

Also over the weekend, birthday girl Lyndell Hendricks was surprised by friends and family with a party in her honor with wine, apps and petit cupcakes to celebrate!
