Nomination period still open for annual ‘Best of’ Aspen & Snowmass’

Staff report

There is still a bit more time, but Friday is the final day to enter a nomination in the annual “Best of Aspen & Snowmass,” and so far more than 8,300 people, places or things have been entered.

The Aspen Times and Snowmass Sun are taking nominations for our annual “Best of Aspen & Snowmass” contest until 11:59 p.m. Friday.

Who is the Best Volunteer? The Best Doctor? Where is the Best Margarita in Snowmass? The Best Workout Class in Aspen?

Last year we had more than 42,000 votes cast. If you think you’re the best, your business is the best, your friend is the best — make sure to nominate them.

To ensure we have a fair competition, the “Best Of” competition is split into two phases, nomination and voting.

Only the top 10 most nominated people and businesses make it on the official voting ballot for “Best of Aspen & Snowmass” — think of it as the primaries. The nomination process is a blind write-in.

So far, more than 1,250 people have logged in and made nominations.

Our online platform streamlines nominations and allows users to have their say without the influence of previous entries.

After the nominees are vetted and tallied by our crack staff who are working over the weekend, voting will start Monday and run through Sept. 23.

Keep a look out for the “Best of Aspen & Snowmass” special publication coming in October.

But for now … the nomination clock is ticking.
