Snowmass history: Have you met Jean?
Snowmass Villager article introduced local resident to town
The Snowmass Villager, part of The Aspen Times, introduced resident Jean Young to the town in an article called “We’d like you to meet…” printed in the late summer 1968.
“Up until last January, Jean Young was spending her days doing sales promotion for a commercial film laboratory and spending several nights a week singing jazz in night clubs and supper clubs in the Chicago area,” the article reported. “But, she says, ‘I had gotten very tired and was a frustrated skier.’ So, she packed up and moved to Snowmass, which she had been reading about in newspapers and magazines. Now she is Conference Social Director and assistant to Dennis Keegan. She owns a condominium here and says she has no intention of leaving.”
Aesthetic concerns won over Monday night as Snowmass Town Council members and residents pushed back on two cell towers currently proposed for the base of Two Creeks ski lift.
