The Drop-In: A lap in honor of Bob Beattie (video)

Bob Beattie, a legend in the ski and broadcast world, died at the age of 85 on April 1. He left his mark not only on the international and national ski community but also on Aspen, as he moved to the mountain town in 1970. We are dedicating today’s Drop-In to Beattie and take a run down America’s Downhill course on Aspen Mountain in his honor.
