Since our planet's weather patterns are totally f#cked up, Aspen Spin has decided to ski more POW!! After 5 or 6 days of beautiful, warm spring weather, it decided to precipitate-----hard. That meant rain in town, but snow on top. The snow line was at about 8500 ft. so for the un-initiated that means it was pouring rain on Little Nell and dumping fully ski-able pow pow at the peak. 8 to 10" dropped on Saturday. No one in their right mind was skiing---except----of course --------the BELL MOUNTAIN BUCKAROO's (pictured below).
Rip Shorts (Greg Lee) enlightened Aspen Spin during an exclusive interview from the bucket, "We're a hard core ski gang. If there's snow we're going to Rip It up. If there's rocks, we jump over them, if there are brown spots, we avoid them and if the lifts stay open until 5----we ski until 5.30". The Buckaroo's got their money's worth last Saturday. Shown here L to R, DADOO, RIP SHORTS, TROUT, JEFFER, HESS, TREY and new pledge KENNY (who was fined for not wearing his pledge pin.) One of the most interesting aspects of this unique and extreme Rain/Snow ski day-----the Dogs----a rival gang, were nowhere to be found.
In addition to the Buckaroo's, one other group of crazy skiers braved the elements, the team from www.YellowJumpsuits.com got out and enjoyed the weather. Shown here is the Yellow Jumpsuits executive managment team. If you want to buy one of their "bad boy" weather-proof suits--give 'em a click.
Once the storm passed, some of the less courageous folks peaked their heads outside and braved the elements. One of the more timid soles, veteran actor and all around celebrity DEAN WEILER (shown, left) was in town to promote his new play, Aspen Soap. A-Spin asked Weiler if he skied during the storm. Weiler responded " naaaa, I'm here for the ladies". Weiler is well known in Hollywood circles as a big-time lothario. He has bagged so many young starlets, that his nickname in La La Land is "the De-Virginizer". If his list of roles on IMDB were as long as his list of conquests he'd have a few gold statues by now. Rumor has it that the sketch from Entourage where Johnny Drama pleasures himself in his trailer before performing a big scene was based on Weiler's audition for Gangs of New York. Weiler did not get that role, but you can see him take his star turn Aspen Soap with co-star Felicity Huffman on April 1-4 at the Black Box Theatre.
