Mountain Mayhem: New Year’s Eve was rocking in Aspen

Mountain Mayhem

Throngs of visitors and locals gathered in Aspen to send 2018 off on a snowy night and usher in 2019 with open arms. The options for revelry ranged from live shows such as Vaud and the Villains at the Wheeler Opera House to a masquerade party with Justice at Belly Up. Several hotels around town transformed their common areas into elevated venues for DJs and dancing while private parties from Red Mountain residences to downtown dining establishments. Thanks to the city of Aspen for enabling early birds and night owls to enjoy the fireworks every year — by hosting two shows at 8 p.m. and the stroke of midnight.
