  1. Can’t fix stupid.
    The famous don’t really go to aspen any longer. Aspen’s too crowded since the early 2000’s, the anonymity the famous sought is no longer present. And yes, there are a lot of boring nouveau riche that have moved to aspen, it’s an ego driven town, a lot like Boulder.

      1. Lol this sounds like a guy that has never been to Aspen. It goes right in to town, it’s not a gated community.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
