Valley Roundup - January 3rd, 2014

Carolyn Sackariason and Andy Stone join us to talk about the big news this week including the Silver Queen Gondola on Aspen Mountain.  Right at peak ski season the lift blew a wheel bearing - a big one.

The grounded ski lift appears to have had little effect on tourism in town.  It is shaping up to be one of the best Holiday season’s in recent years.

Also today we look at Colorado’s mark on history.  You can now walk into a store, buy some ganja, fire up the bong and toke it up…and it’s all legal.  This is such a big story that Colorado’s biggest news paper hired a marijuana editor to handle the news flow.

Its all head on today’s Valley Roundup.
