Aspen hasn't always been a winter playground for the rich and famous. The Utes called the area "Shining Mountains" but didn't spend winters here. The first settiement in 1879 was a mining camp called Ute City. Miners found snow a nuisance in their pursuit of silver. In the year before the market collapsed in 1893, one-sixth of all silver unearthed in the U.S. came from Aspen-area mines. The first ski resort opened in 1936, but Aspen's reputation as a favorite winter destination of the jet set wouldn't be earned until after WWII. One of the original powderhounds, Fried! Pfeifer was a member of the 10th Mountain Division. Pfeifer's plans for Aspen's first chair lift were realized when he teamed with Chicago industrialist Walter Paepeke, who nurtured the small resort into a year-round sports and cultural center. In 1950, Aspen hosted a world championship ski event and established itself as an international resort.
