This weekend, snowboarder Chris Klug, and Starwood developer Edgar Stern  are being inducted into the United States Ski and Snowboard Hall of fame. Though the actual hall is in Michigan, the ceremony is happening in Aspen - Klug’s hometown.

Klug said in a phone interview on Thursday that he owes a lot to the sport he’s being honored for.

“It was my livelihood for 25 years,” said Klug. “It took me all over the world. It was a great education and introduced me to great people, and friends and teammates. “

The event is on Saturday at the St. Regis Hotel at 5 p.m..
