Alongside the swag, food, and festivities at World Cup Village at Wagner Park, ski racers and fans alike will have a chance to take political action.

 

Protect Our Winters and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) will set up an old-fashioned phone booth for concerned citizens to call elected officials. The booth is outfitted with phone numbers and talking points, but you supply the phone.

“All eyes are going to be on Aspen and it’s a chance for us to get the word out about climate change and that we’re concerned,” said Christy Mahon with ACES.

The phone booth will be up Wednesday through Sunday, from 1 to 6 p.m. daily.

 

Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
