The calendar says it is officially the fall season in Aspen, Colorado and the weather pattern tells us the same thing. The leaves have all started changing to gorgeous colors and we have even had a couple snowfalls up high in the mountains. This past week the bear visits are on the rise, but as always the Aspen Police Department handles the bears and the people so well. [Read more…]
Colorado’s Roaring Fork River is aptly named, as the sound of rushing water is ever present along its beautiful 70 mile descent from the crest of the Rocky Mountains to it’s confluence with the Colorado River. As the water tumbles down it’s course, the many rapids inject oxygen into the cool water, creating the perfect conditions for trout and the many aquatic insects they ingest. Such conditions combined with beautiful settings and a course that runs directly through Aspen makes the Roaring Fork a fly fisherman’s paradise. [Read more…]
What a weekend at Lift One Condominiums in Aspen, CO! The Food and Wine Classic 2017 was a success and we have some wonderful photos to share with you! Renowned Sommelier Belinda Chang and Chef Extraordinaire Sarah Grueneberg, both James Beard Award winners, hosted a fabulous party at Lift One!
Strolling along Hopkins Street in Aspen, CO, is a fun exploration in our culinary options. There are 3 relative newcomers very close to each other – Meat and Cheese, White House Tavern and Hooch. They fit together very well in this corner of town. The founder of Avalanche Cheese Company in Basalt, Wendy Mitchell, opened Meat and Cheese 2 years ago and they have developed a very loyal following among locals and visitors alike. Try one of their signature boards, unique cocktails and their legendary Thai coconut soup. You may think you are in an urban eatery until you look up and see Red Mountain in the setting sun.
There are some changes upon us at Lift One! After 31 years the property managers, Mac Boelens and Mary Upton, have decided to retire! In this quiet corner of Aspen, CO, they have dedicated themselves to creating a unique and welcoming lodge and Aspen vacation rentals at Lift One Condominiums. Their mark will never be forgotten as they have created a way of management and customer service that the Board of Managers and the new property managers are determined to continue.
From their detailed attention to each and every guest’s needs, to the impeccable upkeep of every unit, as well as the team that works together to welcome one and all, this will continue to be the mission of the new management team.
You may recognize the new managers! Mauro and Molly Faath are thrilled to assume the position and follow through and continue with Mac and Mary’s vision. Mauro just celebrated his 15th year as a maintenance employee with Lift One and Molly worked at the front desk from 2007 – 2013. They are absolutely delighted with this new adventure and can’t wait to welcome back all of the returning guests they have known throughout the years as well as the new!
For those of you who just can’t imagine Lift One without Mac and Mary, don’t worry! They will be helping Mauro and Molly with the transition over the next year. Rest assured, they will be popping around here and there, helping out and welcoming guests. No one can really imagine an Aspen visit to Lift One without them, so we are all elated that they will help guide and train Mauro and Molly in every detail.
As much as most will stay the same, you will notice small changes here and there. We hope you love them but if you don’t please don’t hesitate to come talk to us. We are here for you as we have always been, waiting to make your next vacation to Aspen and Lift One the most memorable for you, your family and friends.
See you this summer!!
