The party is hosted by HeartQuarters, an organization dedicated to promoting education, wellness, and harm reduction in psychedelics.

Roaring Fork Express adds shuttle service at Aspen airport
Following the launch last winter of shuttles from the Roaring Fork Valley to the Denver and Eagle airports, Roaring Fork Express will add service at the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport, the company announced this week.
“We are excited to add routes for Aspen Snowmass and the region, including the need for Aspen airport shuttle up and down the Roaring Fork Valley,” said company owner and CEO Landon Ogilvie. “Growing the scope and resources at Roaring Fork Express will benefit all sectors of the operation, including the local and destination airport shuttles, as well as events, weddings, hotel, corporate, and other services.”
Aspen airport shuttles will operate on a per-vehicle basis (rather than shared, per-customer rides), and the service will reach from Aspen to Glenwood Springs and adjoining areas. Vehicles will include SUVs, Transits, and Mini-Coaches with capacity up to 27 passengers, and the ability to accommodate all skis, boards, and luggage.
As a bonus, Roaring Fork Express will now also offer shuttles to the Maroon Bells during the summer.
“Since our launch, we have received repeated requests for Aspen airport transportation, and we are glad to bring this added option to the valley,” Ogilvie said. “It will allow us to expand our other offerings as well with increased vehicles and staff, and we look forward to continuing to grow services for our partners, residents, and guests.”
ASE shuttles are available now, with booking available online at roaringforkexpress.com, or by calling 970-486-3002 or 800-822-4844. Rides will also be available for booking in-person at the Aspen airport starting Friday.
