I am very familiar with the resort areas of the Central Mountains of Colorado. I have worked in the resort industry here since 1988, and have first-hand knowledge (as a resident or former resident) of Aspen, Snowmass, Summit County (Breckenridge/Keystone/Copper Mountain), and now South Park, Colorado ( does exist).

Experience in the area

I have worked in the resort industry in Central Colorado since 1988, including local coordination work for inbound tour operators. I have extensive knowledge of the Aspen/Snowmass and Summit County resort areas as well as South Park, but I have also worked with groups in Winter Park, Crested Butte, and Steamboat as well.

Unfortunately I found the travel industry after college, so my education does not necessarily match up with this field. I have a bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering from Stanford University.

The hike up to the Maroon Bells is GORGEOUS--especially this time of year.  I BELIEVE you will also be able to drive up to Maroon Lake (instead of having to take the bus up from town) as long as you are
