GRAND IS TOTALLY MORE EPIC THAN EPIC
by Todd Hartley

Yesterday was my friend’s birthday, and while I wished him a happy one, I neglected to mention that I thought he, as a resident of Waitsfield, Vermont, and a shareholder in Mad River Glen ski area, might want to rally his troops right now and get ready for battle.

The way things are going, it’s only a matter of time before one or the other of skiing’s new behemoths is going to want to buy Waitsfield’s beloved but curmudgeonly local hill, and Mad River better know how it plans to respond. Read the rest of this entry →

ASPEN SHOULD RACE TO KEEP RACES IN TOWN
by Todd Hartley

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? We should do that more often, by which I mean every winter.

If you weren’t in Aspen last week, you missed out on a heck of a party during the World Cup finals. It was the biggest sporting event in the city’s history, and I think Aspen knocked it out of the park. Things really couldn’t have gone much better.

The races were exciting, with plenty of drama; the courses held up beautifully, despite temperatures in the 60s; and the weather — well, if there’s such a thing as too perfect, a week in March with nary a cloud certainly qualifies. Read the rest of this entry →

IT’S TIME FOR A “DAY WITHOUT THE DOWNVALLEY”
by Todd Hartley

I don’t usually wade into other people’s arguments, particularly in online comment sections, but I read an exchange of viewpoints recently on The Aspen Times’ website that I figured I could have a little fun with, so here goes. The names have been changed because I don’t feel like giving either guy the publicity, but other than that this is mostly real.

The first chap — call him Chet — is a frequent writer of letters to the editor about his favorite subject, which happens to be the Entrance to Aspen and its resultant traffic issues. Chet is very much against the status quo, fervently believes Highway 82 should make a four-lane straight shot into downtown Aspen and loves to tell people about it. Read the rest of this entry →

PERSONAL DISPUTES WE SHOULD CARE NOTHING ABOUT
by Todd Hartley

For the most part, in penning this column each week, I try not to write about local issues. The title is “I’m With Stupid,” after all, so I don’t want anyone I know to feel guilty by association should their name or cause appear in some rant of mine. This week, however, the real world intruded upon Aspen’s little bubble of unreality, so the topic of discussion will concern a business about a block from the center of downtown.

For those unfamiliar with the story, here’s what happened: A woman brought some memorabilia from Donald Trump’s inauguration to Suitable for Framing to have the stuff framed and the owner said she couldn’t fulfill the woman’s request. This much everyone agrees upon. What happened next is unclear. Read the rest of this entry →

GIVE ME A HOME WHERE A MOUSE COULDN’T ROAM
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallHere in Aspen, where the billionaires roam and the dowered and the affluent play, we take great pride in the prices of our homes. Why, just now I did a search to see how much a one-bedroom apartment in town would cost and found a pied-a-terre “within walking/biking distance” to downtown for $895,000. I was aghast at how low the price was.

Honestly, Aspen, the place was on the river. Back in the day that fact alone would have made it worth a million. What have we become? Read the rest of this entry →

I CAN SAVE ASPEN $494,000 RIGHT NOW
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallWhen putting my stupidity to words each week, I usually try to avoid talking about local subjects, lest I hurt people’s feelings. Sadly, however, this week I feel compelled to stay local, and it might end up hurting the feelings of some friends of mine. But something really stupid just happened in Aspen, and I would be remiss in my duties if I didn’t note it.

I’ll explain the situation as if I were spelling it out for someone who’s never been here: There are essentially two roads connecting Aspen to the outside world. The first is Power Plant Road, a tortuous trek through the small canyon of Castle Creek that is accessed via a stop-and-go, one-block-at-a-time zigzag through Aspen’s tony West End.

TO HELL YOU RIDE, TO HEAVEN YOU GO
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallTo my way of thinking, which is usually wrong, there is a hierarchy of mountain towns in Colorado based on how mountain-y they really are. And by mountain-y, I mean scenic, authentic and a pain in the ass to get to.

By this measure, a place like Vail — with its resort feel, interstate highway and weekend hordes — scores quite low, while a place like Crested Butte — quaint, frigid and 30 miles from Gunnison — scores rather high. Aspen, historic and scenic but burdened with things like an airport, culture and a mostly four-lane highway, scores somewhere in the middle.  Read the rest of this entry →

HERE’S AN ASPEN IDEA: SHOW A LITTLE RESPECT
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallHey, Aspen — where the world’s elite are, at this very moment, convening for the annual Aspen Ideas Festival — I’ve got a favor to ask after all my years of faithful stupid. I’m calling on those of you who have Ideas Fest passes, from the elite all the way down to my friends, to perform a tiny act of civil disobedience for me.

If you’re reading this early enough today, go to the Hotel Jerome ballroom at 7:45 a.m. for a breakfast talk called “Who Should Safeguard Our Data?” Then all you have to do is stand at the back of the room and talk loudly among yourselves. That’s it. Just pick out a friend and start yammering away and don’t let up until breakfast is done.  Read the rest of this entry →

CAUTION: WATCH OUT FOR FALLING STUPID
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallYou know how they have those signs along roads that tell you to watch out for falling rocks? You know how you always ignore them? Well, there’s a place near where I live where you really do have to watch out, and it claimed another vehicular victim recently.

It’s called Glenwood Canyon, specifically the area around the Hanging Lake Rest Area, and every couple of years a big boulder or two will fall from the canyon wall onto Interstate 70. It happened again the other day, with the boulder taking out the trailer of a semi. Thankfully, the driver was unharmed, Read the rest of this entry →

URINE PLAZA AND THE LOTTERY DEATH SENTENCE
by Todd Hartley

Todd Hartley-smallLiving in a small town in the mountains, as I do, I suppose I was less aware of the homelessness problem in America than I should have been. I mean, there are street corners around here where you expect to see panhandlers every day, but that’s about it. They tell me homelessness is a problem in our little valley, but it’s really not in your face that much.

Let me put it this way: Living here has rendered me ill-prepared for what I saw in San Francisco when I got off the Muni at the Civic Center stop at 6 p.m. a couple of weeks ago and walked upstairs to U.N. Plaza.

Holy tap-dancin’ platypus, Batman! Read the rest of this entry →
