Letter: Learn some Aspen history

Jeanne McGovern did a wonderful job of bringing the Ski History Tour to life on the pages of this week’s Aspen Times Weekly. What a great reminder that even if you’ve lived here for years, there’s always hidden history to be discovered around us.

If you’re thinking about taking the Ski History Tour, it’s free with your lift ticket. Meet ambassador Jane Click at the mid-mountain hut on Aspen Highlands on Mondays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and fifth-generation Aspenite Tony Vagneur at the top of Aspen Mountain on Fridays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Our Historic Pub Tour has been so popular that we’re thinking of adding a second day, but right now it’s only on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. and meets at the Red Onion.

We hope you’ll take a tour with or visit the Aspen Historical Society soon. Our award-winning exhibit on the Ute Indians comes down in April, so there are just a couple more months to catch it.
