A recent article from Ocean Drive highlighted Aspen as a guide for a getaway. In the article, they spoke of Ugo Colombo’s relationship with Aspen. Ugo Colombo and his wife Sara Colombo often traveled there as avid skiers, and eventually purchased a house there. Ugo Colombo realized that the warmer months were equally as enjoyable as winter if not more so. “It’s a very healthy lifestyle.
