Aspen-to-Basalt ski tour canceled
October 21, 2009
ASPEN – The Town to Town Tour announced Tuesday it will take a year off following its winter events in 2008 and 2009.
Each year, more than 360 participants had cross-country skied and snowshoed on the Rio Grande Trail from Aspen to Basalt and attended celebration party afterward. While there is broad-based enthusiasm for this family friendly event, the recession has made it difficult to secure enough financial sponsors in time to guarantee a quality event for 2010, said the event’s founder and organizer, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers. RFOV will begin planning for a 2011 Tour early next year.
