Around Aspen: Aspen Magazine
Another festive party during the holiday season was one given at Ajax Tavern at the Little Nell by John Speer, manager of the Nell, and Janet OGrady, editor-publisher of Aspen Magazine. The Tavern is recently remodeled but there was such a crowd, the restaurant had put up a tent covering the outdoor seating area and opened it into the Tavern, making for a wonderful venue.This week is all about magazines. My March copy of Cowboys & Indians magazine arrived and includes a photo of former longtime Aspenite Roddey Burdine, who now lives on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. He was attending the Santa Fe Barkin Ball and is pictured with movie actress Ali MacGraw at the benefit for the Santa Fe Shelter and Humane Society. Roddey lived here during the 1970s and 1980s and was very involved in the Aspen Bicentennial Celebrations.
As a member of the International Skiing History Association (ISHA) I received a subscription to Ski Magazine. Aspen was well represented in the December and January issues with an article about dinosaurs by Jay Cowan; an article about the modular home in Woody Creek of Kathryn and Tony Grant; an article about Edgar Stern who left Aspen to found Park City and Deer Valley; and several historical articles by frequent Aspen visitor and former Ski editor John Fry, which highlight former Aspen residents and Olympic skier Andrea Mead Lawrence, and Suzy Chaffee, ski racer and fashion gold medalist of the World Cup, who was known as Suzy Chapstick because she appeared in glamorous ads for Seagram, Revlon and Chapstick. Also featured in the article are ski racers Jean-Claude Killy, Shannon Tweed, Alberto Tomba and Sylvain Saudan, who participated in many races in Aspen. Writer Fry tells what these ski legends are doing now. Aspen photographer David O. Marlow is featured in the January issue of Architectural Digest magazine, shooting a unique five-story residence located at the historic Dunton Hot Springs outside of Telluride. The vertical glass structure, designed by New York architect Annabel Seadorf, was created vertically to blend with, and be concealed by, the surrounding pine trees. The home, although only 100 yards from the Hot Springs, is barely visible. The house maintains unique metal shutters that cover the glass on every level, protecting the house when not occupied. David is now off to Los Angles to photograph several additional homes for Architectural Digest.Undercurrent … Its time to work on your income taxes!

: The Colorado Department of Transportation gives Aspen’s roundabout a poor grade in terms of level of service so it’s thinking about making changes. But first, a study or two must be done.
