    The Aspen Times in beautiful Aspen, Colorado, is looking for a talented writer-editor to lead our sports and outdoors coverage for the region's largest daily paper and website. The right candidate is deadline-driven, communicates well, is passionate about local sports and can clearly demonstrate how to organize and grow readership in our daily sports section. Writing skills are essential, but so is time management. In a typical day, our sports editor will jump between covering a basketball game and an international ski race to laying out the section and posting stories to the web. This position will also manage our weekly Outdoors feature section on Saturdays by coordinating staff and freelance writers, columnists and content focused on the beautiful area where we live. Our sports editor must know InDesign, Photoshop, AP style and have a basic understanding of photography. The job requires consistent evening and weekend work, although powder-day rules do apply. Interested? Email resume, cover letter, and three writing clips to managing editor Rick Carroll at rcarroll@aspentimes.com. EOE.

    A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talkin' bout a little place called Aspen

    True. But expensive. You would probably have to live outside Aspen towards Glenwood Springs.

    I'd hate to see the agenda for heavy days.

    Definitely have heard some not great things about this place, but it's all on the news side. I can answer questions regarding that in PM.

    This is a solo act, yes. I work in sports at a nearby shop within the company for those who have questions ...

    I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.
