Welcome to Valley Roundup for Friday 8-23-2013, a review of the week’s top news stories in the Roaring Fork Valley.
The big news story of this week came in on pedal power to the upper valley. Year three of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge literally shut the place down on Monday afternoon. By most accounts the race is a positive event…though it remains a tough sell for some. We also discuss the big number of homes in Aspen that list their owners as corporations. And, what would a review of the news be if we didn’t mention marijuana? The retail sale of recreational marijuana is moving forward in fits and starts.
Also today one severe outlook on climate change sees an end to the global ski industry by century’s end. We’ll talk with Porter Fox and editor at Powder magazine about his new book on climate change and the ski industry.
