Study: Air in Aspen in 2005 worse than many Front Range cities Study: Air in Aspen in 2005 worse than many Front Range cities

I am not the least bit upset by this Study: Air in Aspen in 2005 worse than many Front Range cities. It is really quite humorous, people paying a million dollars to live in a tiny house just so they can breath the pollution in the rarified air in Aspen. But that is ok, because a lot of the most stylish people around the world join them there.

Besides, the air isn't all that rarified in Aspen, as compared to the rest of the state. My father and brothers live, and I used to live, at about the elevation of Aspen in the foothills west of Denver. The base elevations of most of the ski areas around Aspen are so low, that skiing there is mostly shot there by mid-March, whereas Arapahoe Basin invariably stays open into June most years. The base elevations of the other three ski areas in Summit County are close to the elevations of the tops of the Aspen ski areas, roughly 2,500 feet higher than Aspen itself.
