It's warm. It's a place where the beer flows like wine. A place where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.

They sell things in stores!
They put covers on things!
People going skiing have skis!

Quality journalism.

You Can't Afford It   -  pretty much makes the rest of the list useless. It's about as accessible as Best Korea if you're not at least an 8-figure+ type.

Always figured it would be the place to move to if you won a $500mil lottery, just to keep you humble. You're only a millionaire?!? GUARDS! Remove this... this peasant! Come back when you have three commas, plebe.

The city tried to sue aspen trees for using their name. When that failed they passed a law against ugly trees. Any aspen that is not aesthetically pleasing is cut down and  the trees are recycled. Some of them are turned into clubs that they beat the poor with and the scraps used for the weekly bonfie of hobos.

water fountain covers

Wait, they have public water fountains?! With free water? Sounds like a good way to attract those people. You know, listicle writers.

I lived in Aspen a couple ski seasons in the early 90s. Warren Miller filmed Aspen Extreme one year I was there. They filmed a scene at the restaurant my brother worked at, and he plays a waiter (nonspeaking) in the movie.

I arrived in Aspen that year right after Trump went there on a ski trip with his first wife AND his mistress. Marla Maples confronted Ivana on the ski slopes, and told her "Stay away from my man." The town's two free daily newspapers jokes about that many times that year.

Sounds like the poor man's Monaco.

I've been there for conferences before.  There is a fantastic fossil and stone (including fossil/stone tables) store in town.  It was a great place to visit, not excessively expensive beyond some other huge tourist spots in the US.  However, that flight in .. it was enough to cause the most staid person to have a heart attack.  Aspen airport is notorious for bad cross-winds and flights constantly being canceled.

Someone asked "how's your Aspen?" and they took it seriously?
