"Challenge Aspen". 

That was the group my late brother Paul worked with. Paul was the professional snowboader who got ALS and took up sit-skiing after he lost the ability to walk. Paul got Jake Burton of Burton Snowboards hooked up with Challenge Aspen & that was one of the two groups my sister-in-law selected for memorial donations in my brother's name (the other being Project ALS).

My brother Pete owns a house in Carbondale.

I'll bet my brothers knew this guy.

Here's videos of Paul on Challenge Aspen equipment:

Thanks for posting this. A funny line about Keith Richard and a touching connection for me.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)

Keith Richards was a choirboy at the coronation of the Queen.
