About Us


RealAspen is an independent, online news and lifestyle site that brings a view of the news and events that shape Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood and the Roaring Fork Valley.

The site was launched in 2010 by a group of mountain journalist who sought a new way forward for journalism in the new-media era. David O. Williams and Tom Boyd took their decades-long experience in community journalism and used this to create a content-rich, informative, and personal online representation of the mountain towns they’d come to know and love.

After six years learning the ins and outs of online media, and scraping by during a difficult recession, RealAspen and its sister site, RealVail, are re-launching under a new business model.
