Snowmass Rodeo en Mountain Edition - August 8th, 2013 <p>Aspen Public Radio became a bit more digital this week. We posted our first story told through video of the 40th anniversary of the Snowmass Rodeo. It’s part of the station’s multi-media expansion.</p><p>With oil and gas in the news pretty much all the time in Colorado, we take a look at lessons learned from one of the hot spots in Western Colorado some years ago.</p><p>We continue our Work the Valley series with a look at a forest service employee who designs plans to make towers, power lines and fences blend in with nature.</p><p>And, we’ll take a trip to Summit County where an act of Congress could open up more land for affordable housing. Just like the Roaring Fork Valley, it’s a pricey area where free market homes are often out of reach.</p><p>We talk to the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy. M. Sanjayan talks about mega-fires and disappearing snowpack.</p><p> Thu, 08 Aug 2013 22:41:31 +0000 Marci Krivonen & Elise Thatcher 5754 at Mountain Edition - August 8th, 2013 Video: 40 Years of the Snowmass Rodeo <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" src="" webkitallowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" width="500"></iframe></p><p><a href="">40 Years of the Snowmass Rodeo</a> from <a href="">Aspen Public Radio</a> on <a href="">Vimeo</a>.</p><div class="description_wrapper"><div class="description " data-expand-tooltip="Click to expand description" itemprop="description"><p class="first">A look at the Snowmass Rodeo which turns 40 years old this year.</p><p>Produced, Filmed &amp; Edited by Chris Council &amp; Chris Janjic exclusively for Aspen Public Radio</p><p>More information:</p><p>Chris Council: <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a></p><p>Chris Janjic: <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a></p><p>Snowmass Rodeo: <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a></p></div></div><p> Wed, 07 Aug 2013 16:41:00 +0000 Chris Council & Chris Janjic 5609 at
