Events in Aspen During the 2019 Winter X Games

Posted on January 24, 2019 by Chris Klug

It’s that time of the year again! Town is packed, and for good reason. Starting today, watch the best winter sports athletes in the world compete for their chance to take home the gold in the 2019 Winter X Games at Buttermilk Mountain. In addition to the competitions, there will be live performances by Lil’ Wayne, Louis The Child, The Chainsmokers, and Kygo! Walk around the X Games interactive village in-between events for the chance to get merchandise, free swag, and information about events. As local competitor Alex Ferreira likes to say, it truly is the super bowl of skiing! In addition to X Games events, there’s a Historic Pub Crawl, a Historic Hotel Jerome tour, Historic Ski tours of Aspen Mountain and Aspen Highlands, a Friday Morning Uphill Breakfast on Buttermilk, and tours at the Aspen Art Museum. What a weekend to be in Aspen! Happy X Games from all of us at Klug Properties!

Winter X Games Kicks Off in Aspen, CO

Posted on January 26, 2013 by Mary Kate

Happy Winter X Games! Aspen, CO is once again full with X Games athletes, media, industry friends, and visitors. It is so exciting to drive by Buttermilk Mountain at night the past days and see it light up with athletes training and preparing for action starting today. I was at Buttermilk this morning helping set-up our <a href="http://www.chrisklugfoundation.org/" target="_blank">Chris Klug Foundation</a> booth in the Team ESPN<!--more--> Tent in the sponsors village. Last year we spoke directly with seven thousand people about organ donation and passed out lime green Donor Dudes sunglasses and swag. Stop by our booth this year to check out the Donor Dude. Our friend <a href="http://www.glippco.com/" target="_blank">Greg Lipp</a> created an interactive Donor Dude to promote organ donation.

I attended an Aspen Board of Realtors luncheon yesterday with Ted Jones PhD. Sr. VP and Chief Economist for Stewart Title as the keynote speaker. He was very bullish on the local Aspen real estate market. His opinion was that the stock market was overvalued and that the bottom is behind us in the Aspen Real Estate Market. He stressed that jobs are the key to recovery. As job numbers go up, real estate will also rise. We've had two years of housing numbers on the increase in Aspen. He felt 2009 was the best time to buy in Aspen. I personally feel there are some great values and choices for buyers today. According to Dr. Jones essential to a sustained recovery is a national political landscape that will work together to come up with a long-term plan for the national debt crisis.

I toured a couple of new listings this morning that I wanted to share with you. 727 Creek Tree Condos Unit 727 listed by Frias Properties is a four bedroom, three bath riverfront town home across from Herron Park in downtown Aspen. The unit is dated, but has great southern exposure and views of Aspen Mountain on the banks of the Roaring Fork River with a carport and only four units in complex for $2,999,000. I also looked at 777 South Ute Ave. Units 1 &amp; 1A listed by BJ Adams &amp; Co. It seems absurdly priced at $8,198,000, but with five bedrooms, four bath, a roof top deck with Jacuzzi, an elevator, an 800 square foot bonus room with pool table and work out equipment, three underground parking spaces in the downtown core, two blocks from the Silver Queen Gondola and a short walk to the Aspen Club on the East Aspen trail it's unique. For $1,655 a month in HOA dues you get to take advantage of the Aspen Alps amenities and shuttle. Unit 2 is also available next door for $1,795,000, creating a seven bedroom, seven thousand square foot compound.

I'm here full-time working and playing and being a new dad. I hope to see you out at the X Games this weekend. Stop by our CKF booth and say hi. Call or email me anytime to discus the Aspen market in more detail. Thanks for checking out my site; I hope it was helpful. Enjoy your weekend!
