Frias Properties of Aspen managing partner Tim Clark and his family had their own little triathlon the other day around Aspen Snowmass -- hiking, skiing and riding, and apres ski -- and loved every minute of it.

"As we loaded our gear into the SUV, our 6-year-old said, 'Dad, I can't wait to ski and see my friends at Aspen Snowmass Ski School today,' I knew it was going to be a great day," Tim said.

An Aspen native, Tim first joined his father in the real estate business and soon thereafter gained extensive and valuable experience in management, sales and most recently development. His family consists of wife Kara and children Ben, 6, and Kendall, 8. Both children are avid skiers and have been attending the ski school since they were 3 years old. Tim has been a skier most of his life while Kara enjoys snowboarding.

The family's first stop of the day was to take the kids to ski school, where "drop off went like an orchestral maneuver," Tim said. "We were at Tiehack by 9:15 to hike, enjoy each other's company and the views." The couple hiked to the top and enjoyed complimentary Powerade and Clif Bars while taking in the breathtaking views at Cliffhouse. Tim and Kara then headed over to Snowmass to ski and ride. The couple enjoyed time at Elk Camp among bluebird skies and a plethora of fresh powder as the kids continued at ski school.

Apres ski found us at sunny Two Creeks while awaiting the ski school to wrap up," Tim said. The couple enjoyed quality time at the base area, which is highlighted by a retail shop and a cafe. Afterward, the couple picked up the kids from ski school and wrapped up their day by sharing all of their outdoor experiences with one another.

"Yet another perfect day at Aspen Snowmass. Living the dream," Tim said.
