Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
Vail Resorts bought Whistler this week for $1 billion. How that will affect attracting guests to Aspen/Snowmass is a question industry observers are asking.
In Basalt, politics are in play with publicly-owned land, and at the council table.
Meanwhile, the former CEO of Aspen Valley Hospital is returning to his post after being away for three years.
Finally, Donald Trump is coming to Aspen next week. To get a VIP meeting with him and a photo op, the pricetag is $25,000 a couple.
Joining me this week are Scott Condon, reporter for the Aspen Times, Roger Marolt, columnist for the Aspen Times and the Snowmass Sun and Madeleine Osberger, contributing editor of the Aspen Daily News, and Randy Essex, editor of the Glenwood Post Independent.
