Snowmass Rodeo http://aspenpublicradio.org en Mountain Edition - August 8th, 2013 http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/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 http://aspenpublicradio.org Mountain Edition - August 8th, 2013 Video: 40 Years of the Snowmass Rodeo http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/video-40-years-snowmass-rodeo <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/71775801" webkitallowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" width="500"></iframe></p><p><a href="http://vimeo.com/71775801">40 Years of the Snowmass Rodeo</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/user19988584">Aspen Public Radio</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">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="http://chriscouncilphotography.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">chriscouncilphotography.com/</a></p><p>Chris Janjic: <a href="http://chrisjanjic.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">chrisjanjic.com/</a></p><p>Snowmass Rodeo: <a href="http://www.snowmassrodeo.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">snowmassrodeo.org/</a></p></div></div><p> Wed, 07 Aug 2013 16:41:00 +0000 Chris Council & Chris Janjic 5609 at http://aspenpublicradio.org
