Aspen ready to party in March
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN – Aspen loves to party, and there will be plenty of opportunities throughout March. It tuckers a person out just looking at the schedule.
The Bud Light Big Air Fridays series continues at Snowmass Friday, March 12, 19 and 26. Some of the best skiers and riders in Colorado perform tricks in competition between 2 and 3 p.m. on Fanny Hill by the mall intersection.
The 10th annual Bud Light Spring Jam features a bunch of free events from March 19-21 and again from March 26-28. One of those events, the KickAspen Big Air competition, will be held under the lights at Aspen Mountain, Friday evening, March 19.
The Fallen Friends Memorial at Aspen Highlands, where skiers and riders compete on a course that features bumps, rails, jumps and other terrain features, will be held Saturday, March 20.
A downtown block party featuring a free outdoor concert by the group Vampire Weekend will also be held in Aspen at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 20.
The party continues in Snowmass the following day at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 21, with a Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert featuring Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
The next concert in the Hi-Fi series will be at 8 p.m. Friday, March 26, when the Greyboy Allstars play at the base of Aspen Mountain.
Schneetag storms Snowmass on Saturday, March 27. The German-inspired event features teams of four that create crafts to slide down Fanny Hill and try to soar over a 50-by-20 foot pond. Each team will perform a skit before their run. They are judged on their costume theme, creativity and flight distance of their craft. The competition is from 2 to 4 p.m.
The busy month wraps up with the Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls on Sunday, March 28. Teams of two will ski courses in Highlands’ various bowls and be tracked by a Flaik GPS device to assess their skills. The top three competitive teams to complete the course accurately in the shortest amount of time will be awarded a cash prize.

CDC expected to recommend vaccinated people resume wearing masks indoors in areas where COVID cases are spiking
The new guidance follows recent decisions in some major cities such as Los Angeles to revert to indoor mask mandates amid a spike in COVID-19 cases, specifically the more transmissible delta variant, and hospitalizations that have been especially bad in the South. The country is averaging more than 57,000 cases a day and 24,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations.
