Aspen Skiing Co. releases trailer for “Rejuvenate: Mind Body Spirit” (video)
Aspen Snowmass, in anticipation of the 2015/16 ski and ride season, premieres the trailer “Rejuvenate: Mind Body Spirit,” a four episode video series scheduled for release Oct. 6, 2015.
In a press release issued Tuesday, Aspen Skiing Co. said the four-episode video series is meant to portray the Aspen Idea, a concept based on the classic Greek philosophy of ‘mind, body, spirit’ that was brought to Aspen in the 1940s by Walter Paepcke and his wife Elizabeth. Peapcke was inspired by Aspen’s natural splendor and envisioned the surrounding peaks and valleys as a place where people could step away from their daily routines and reflect on the beauty of life. Following in the footsteps of last season’s Mind Body Spirit video series, Rejuvenate is meant to portray the Aspen Idea through the eyes and stories of four remarkable locals: Amanda Boxtel, Chris Klug, Mark Pinter and Pete McBride. Watch as they find solace and meaning on the mountains of Aspen Snowmass.
