I hopped the shuttle to my hotel on the outskirts of town, the Aspen Meadows Resort. A sprawling property designed in Bauhaus style, Aspen Meadows is best known as the home of the venerable Aspen Institute. Founded in 1950, the institute has-especially in the almost four years since its president, Walter Isaacson, inaugurated the Ideas Festival-vaulted to the top rung of world conferences, filling the town each summer with more VIP's and plainclothes security men than an underground bunker during the apocalypse. Bill Clinton, the Dalai Lama, and Jordan's Queen Noor are among the hundreds of luminaries who have passed through for public panels and talks under the same white tent that the Music Festival uses for its performances. When you throw in the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and the Aspen Writers' Foundation, no place in the world remotely as small as Aspen (population 6,000) can boast such high-powered cultural institutions. I was pondering this outside the new and spectacularly designed Doerr-Hosier event and art space when a Jeff Spicoli-style van pulled up in front of me, and out jumped a sunburned, long-maned man wearing ski pants and a black turtleneck. Sorry I'm late, said Lorenzo Semple III, 41, shaking my hand. You caught me right as I was coming off the Bowl. Absolutely epic. He slid open the van door, revealing two hanging racks of ski apparel. Suit Yourself, he said, stating the name of his business. Aha, I thought: I've arrived.
