Texan Alexander Zaraza, 9, gets a milkshake at the Shining Stars "Star Bar" on Wednesday afternoon. Volunteers with the nonprofit Shining Stars program, which brings children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses to Aspen for a week of winter activities, served up smoothies, shakes and root beer floats to participants and the public every day this week at the base of Buttermilk. The Shining Stars hit the slopes this morning for the program's 2015 Winter Games.
