Aspen has been reenergized this week as thousands of people watch the best skiers in the world fly down the World Cup course on Ajax. Speaking with News Director Carolyn Sackariason about the races, the sport itself and the buzz around town are Madeleine Osberger and Curtis Wackerle from the Aspen Daily News and Aspen Times columnist Roger Marolt.

You can hear more of the conversation, which includes Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent on Valley Roundup at 3:30 p.m.
