Just a heads up, we Love, LoVe, LOVE our BOTW Ashley Gyder. She has been a friend to Messenger Aspen since day 1 and some of us here have even had the “joy” (haha) of working with her. It’s not to far fetched to say that if you get to know Ash and you are any semblance of a normal human being you will become good friends. Ash has the uncanny knack of seeing the silver-lining in almost everyone and making even the most introverted person break out of their shell. That being said our wonderful friend can also serve up a heavy dose of sass when needed and in all honesty that is one of the qualities about her that we find the most endearing. These days you can find this Little Angel over at “New Belgium’s” Ranger Station in Snowmass. Ranger station truly caters to the laid back vibe we all hold dear here in the mountains. The Station also hosts some great weekly events like Trivia on Wednesdays and live music on Fridays so other than Ash these are some great reasons to swing by and grab a drink. Ashley is a Phishhead ( leave your judgments behind please) it’s a part of this Baby Chicken’s identity, and fyi she’s no “wook” she’s just a person that highly enjoys a good jam. Under every Phish phan is a traveling soul that is full of wanderlust and a spirit of playfulness, Ash has one of these souls and its just another reason we admire her. You like to laugh [ Check] , You like to be given complements [ Check] , Ash has got it taken care of, with a little bit of sauce to boot.So, let’s delve in and see what keeps our friend ” Bouncing around the room”.
