We had the chance to talk to Jordan Campbell, Director of Public Relations and Ambassador Athlete for Marmot, about what Aspen style is to him. It sounds like he enjoys the sporty, fashionable, and social sides of our snowy mountain town. Here is what Jordan had to say:
What is Aspen style?
Aspen is a vivacious lifestyle that celebrates the outdoors, skiing, health and wellness. For me, Aspen style is a blended look of casual and athletic wear finished with high-end fabrications, constructions and embellishments.
Do you ski or ride? Did you get new gear for ’11/12?
I ski both telemark and alpine. I just landed some new K2 Way Backs, which are great for frontside skiing as well as sidecountry and backcountry ski tours.
What do you wear on powder days?
What’s your favorite store for basics?
Ute Mountaineer & Aspen Expeditions (at Highlands)
What’s your favorite store to splurge?
Ute Mountaineer—they have an amazing, knowledgeable staff.
How do you après in Aspen?
The Sky Hotel / 39 Degrees is great on a cold day. Otherwise I’ve always enjoyed the plaza at Highlands in the spring, especially on the last day of the season—so fun to be there with everyone partying and socializing.
Favorite Aspen sighting?
Paris Hilton at the Sky Hotel at the Men’s Journal New Year’s Eve Party a couple of years ago…thought she looked familiar. I almost knocked her over dancing…
Favorite Aspen moment?
On one of my first laps up Highlands Bowl, when it first opened, someone gave me a Highlands Bowl “pin” to wear on my ski jacket. It seemed somewhat trite at first, but then I took a moment to pan the 360-degree view of snow-capped 14ers….nothing could be more Colorado for me.
Seems like Jordan has enjoyed many quintessential Aspen moments, lucky dog! We can’t wait for the Marmot team to arrive at AFW in a few days. Get your tickets now to ensure you get to preview all the looks for winter 12/13.
