Aspen is home to world-class skiing, so there might be a slight advantage to growing up here on skis, BUT the fact remains, we love our skiing and our skiers.  So much so, in fact, that if there’s a chance to support a local athlete, we’ll jump at the chance and have a party just to keep things in line with our way of life .

Wiley MapleTonight at 6:30pm at the Wheeler Opera House there will be a benefit in honor of local skier Wiley Maple.  Mike Marolt and Montezuma Basin Productions present the Aspen theatrical premier screening of Gigantic Pictures film, Deep Winter, but not before having a little pre-screening fete first.

Wiley is the first Aspenite in many years to participate on the World Cup Downhill circuit.  The proceeds of the benefit will help cover Wiley’s US Ski Team travel and training costs for the 2013 ski racing season.  Silent auction items will feature original art by Wiley, authentic US Ski team apparel, Oakley and Strafe products as well many other products and gift certificates donated by local businesses. The event includes a pre-screening party, a silent auction and ski film, so consider your Friday night plans set.

With ski season just two weeks away, there’s no harm in getting pumped up with a party and a movie all in honor of SKIING!  Ticket Prices are just $15.00 for General Admission.
