Invasion of stars

Which is false? Jerry Seinfeld was carving turns at Ajax on Thursday. Tom Cruise was spotted hiking Highland Bowl on Wednesday. Seal was shredding at Buttermilk on Wednesday while his wife, Heidi Klum, took a lesson.Spotting stars on the mountain this time of year is a pretty fun activity, as long as you don’t bug them while they’re enjoying their skiing vacations. If you happen to catch a chair up the hill with Seinfeld, well great. You can tell him how much you like the “Merv Griffin Show” episode that aired during the 1997 season. But don’t bug him while he’s trying to grab lunch with his wife, or when he’s checking out the map at the top of the lift. Stars come here because it’s one of the places where they can be anonymous and not get pestered. It’s the reason a number of celebs, like Kevin Costner, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, choose to live here. The mountains are beautiful. The skiing is great. And you can stand in line at City Market and sign your credit card slip without having to sign anything else. Hopefully.A quick glance is OK. Stars are definitely used to getting attention.Just don’t be obnoxious.Avalanche reportThe backcountry avalanche danger in the Roaring Fork Valley is considerable above treeline on N-E-S aspects with pockets of moderate on other aspects.
