The Aspen Idea — a concept based on the classic Greek philosophy of ‘mind, body, spirit’ — was brought to Aspen in the 1940s by Walter Paepcke and his wife Elizabeth. Peapcke was inspired by Aspen’s natural splendor and envisioned the surrounding peaks and valleys as a place where people could reflect on the beauty of life. Following in the footsteps of Season 1 (see below), Rejuvenate portrays the Aspen Idea through the eyes of four remarkable locals: Amanda Boxtel, Chris Klug, Mark Pinter and Pete McBride. Watch as they find solace and meaning on the mountains of Aspen Snowmass.
Aspen Snowmass offers more than just some of the best mountains in the world. When you come here, you leave with something greater — inspired and invigorated with a stronger mind, body and spirit. That's the Aspen Idea. So for the 2014-15 season, we brought the power of this place to life with a three-episode series featuring 4-time X Games champion Gretchen Bleiler, world champion freeskier Torin Yater-Wallace and best-selling author Walter Isaacson.
Host Nicole Birkhold will be showing you all that Aspen Snowmass has to offer during the summer and the options are endless. Follow her and some local favorites while they explore biking, hiking, paddle boarding, live music, camping and more.
