Tweet All About It: Summer snow in Aspen
Each week, we pick out our favorite and not-so-favorite tweets (at least those that are printable) about Aspen and display them on Sunday’s page A2.
“And just like that, we have our first sign of winter! #Snow fell on #Aspen #Snowmass peaks last night.” – @AspenLodging
“Today’s @Sentebale @ISPSHanda Polo Cup at @PoloinAspen raised nearly $3.5m in funds raised. A new record! The Sentebale Team—which included charity ambassador @nachofigueras —beat the @RoyalSalute and @uspoloassn teams, 3-0, with Prince Harry scoring two goals” – @scobie
“This is a quote from a Maui resident but resonates in all tourist towns: “Tourism is a servants’ prison that keeps local people in a permanent underclass, in our own home. It’s a system that literally only works when people who play here are richer than us who live & work here.” I feel this more than ever here in #snowmass and #aspen.“ – @marcimichelle
“One of the most fun times I ever had in #aspen was the last time @kathleenmadigan played the @WheelerOpera. See you there!” – @craigboleman

Somewhat vanilla on the outside, relying on a heavy dose of the power run, the Basalt High School football team’s offense has always had its share of wrinkles under coach Carl Frerichs. The latest involves the twitchy arm of junior Kade Schneider, who is in his first season as the Longhorns’ QB1.
