The exterior of AETHERmtn on the Cooper Ave. Mall in Aspen

Last week, we headed to our Aspen store, AETHERmtn, to throw an après-ski shopping party benefitting the Aspen Youth Center, which provides local and visiting kids (grades 4-12) with free daily activities, ranging from games to working in the computer lab to playing dodgeball to creating art projects. Kids can go to the center for free, keeping them happily busy as their parents work. We hosted a party at our Colorado store for people to come after they were done working or skiing for the day and shop in the name of a good cause. Ten percent of proceeds from the evening went to the Aspen Youth Center and then we matched that total. It was an evening of good friends, loyal customers, and a great nonprofit. All in all, it was a total success. Here, a few photos from the fun event.
