Mountain Rescue Aspen in New HQ

If you need rescuing around here these are the guys and girls who will be doing it! An all-volunteer force, they will put their own lives at risk to get you out of pretty much anywhere. MRA just got a new beautiful headquarters and also a brand new shiny helicopter. Often they are assisted by BlackHawks so on opening day at the new HQ there were three helicopters for kids to swarm into and around. Because MRA had needed to use the MRA helicopter that very morning we were treated to watching a landing in the field during the opening. It is a good idea to buy a Colorado Search and Rescue card if heading into the wilderness – proceeds go to aiding costs of rescue.

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am an Associate Broker with Basalt Realty. I love to ski, snowboard, horseride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
