Skip to comments.Michelle Obama in Aspen for Ski Vacation
Posted on 02/18/2012 9:43:40 AM PST by kristinn
First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Aspen on Friday afternoon and is here with her daughters for a ski vacation.
Few details about her trip were available. Sources said she is staying at the home of Jim and Paula Crown, owners of the Aspen Skiing Co. She is reportedly skiing at Buttermilk today, where the Crowns, of Chicago, own a home on the Tiehack side.
Several people have known about the low-key vacation, with the Secret Service in town for the past few days scoping out places for the family to relax and enjoy what the resort has to offer.
Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo confirmed that he has met with the Secret Service and has loaned seven deputies to help protect the first lady and her family.

It seems ironis that the constant ballyhoo about community organizing and the poor folks in the hood is all forgotten when the royal family heads out to Martha's Vineyard, Aspen or, Hawaii. It seems that (just once) they'd visit the hood and say hello .
Whew! I've been worried about her. I know that the stress of being Mrs First Fraud is difficult and she has needed to get away.
It's been . . . what? About 34 hours since her LAST vacation??
Has anyone ever seen her ski? She don’t look the athletic type.
For two people who hate America and whitey so much, they spend an awful lot of time taking part in activities and expensive vacations like "uppity rich white folk."
as the British used to say
“the right crowd and no crowding”
She and the Chicago crowd are bringing back the effete snobbery we thought had been buried with the Windsor’s.
[And she learned to ski when??]
I lived in Aspen for 3 years in the early 1980’s and I could count on one hand the amount of AfAms I saw. I heard she never did ski at Vail last year just her kids. Maybe she thinks she looks cute in a ski outfit.
I wonder what gov’t aircraft she used to get into Aspen with a short runway and steep take off pattern it would limit the Queen.
Baraq the one percenter masquerades as an Occupy guy.
And the media cheers him on.
What a shocker! A group of men being critical of a woman’s appearance! Vacation criticism, like those of all First Ladies (Laura Bush took plenty of vacations) is legit. Criticism of their appearance is not legit and is sexist. I saw posts about Laura’s thick ankles and shapeless legs, and that being why she wore pants so often. I saw posts years ago criticizing her for not wearing dresses more often. I saw posts criticizing her hair, her supposedly squinty eyes, her matronly fashion style, etc., etc. All out of bounds, IMO. They didn’t run for office and are not Presidents. They’re just married to the guy and do their best to dress appropriately, have the required pet projects, and continue to raise their children and keep their marriages intact.
Novelist Dean Koontz estimates some $80 billion is missing from the US Treasury since the Chicago crowd came in.
I have no idea why you chose to post to me.
Mars signed an agreement with Michelle Obama's partnership for a healthier America to stop selling chocolate products with more than 250 calories in them by the end of next year. This means popular favorites like Big Snickers and Twix bars are going to disappear off the shelves and smaller bars will shrink.
Michelle works 3 days a week. She needs a lot of vacations. *sarcasm*
All of her lies and anger would wear anyone out. And the healing of those in wheelchairs exhausting.
She has to get vacations in while taxpayers foot the majority of the bill. The grifters will have to pay for their own vacations after 2013.
I think you're thinking of Hillary Clinton, who lost out on life's lottery in the legs department. She has unarguably the ugliest legs ever seen on a woman and always wears pants because of her elephant legs.
Laura Bush, on the other hand, has lovely legs.
And if you saw posts condemning Laura Bush's appearance, you must have seen them on Bush hating sites, because you didn't read that stuff here.
Which makes one wonder if you're one of those trolls we read about all the time.
Hello again, TexasBud. Not to hijack this thread, but I just scanned your prior posts and see you are an Obama voter.
So, you going to vote for him again?
“Im surprised theyre not at Whitneys funeral, soaking up votes!”
I am absolutely shocked that they are both not going to be there!!!
I hope she skis better than she lies.
Whoa! Late to the party, I see.
Anyone who believes “Let’s Move” is just a pet project deserves the zot.
The Paula Crown affair. Promises of ethical management at the White House have clearly not been met
The QUEEN goes on ANOTHER VACATION!!! And the PRINCESSES do TOO!!! ENOUGH!!!!
On PLEASE...they have 110% of the Black vote......any more and it would cause a stir.
Idiot....Laura Bush went HIKING with some girlfriends in National Parks....OUR Natiuonal Parks. You don’;t know what the HELL you are talking about.
They don’t need to be there, they’ll get their votes.
How many days have the Obama girls missed school now? I know most schools allow 10-12 days missed.
So the Crown family is perfectly fine but the Koch brothers are pure evil
The Mooch, just living up to her name. Mooching off others wealth instead of paying for herself.
I am sick of hearing about all the vacations that Michelle and Barack take. None of them seem to work at all. As far as I know Barack was hired to do a job.
Dear Michelle Obama,
Lauren, a local teacher here in Basalt, Colorado should write a book about how justice in America is not 4 the little people. “Justice” is won by the team with the most money. This time it’s big govt. against a little person, Lauren. [google lauren redfern]
Justice, like democracy, should not be an auction. We have a bought govt.
[Michelle Obama is spending the night 4 blocks from my house here N Aspen.]
What the occupy & the tea party movements have in common is the message of: “Enough!” Or:
Dear 1%/big govt, treat us little people with dignity.
[I’d like to walk 4 blocks over from my house to my neighbor billionaire Paula Crown’s house where Michelle is staying [Paula & James Crown r the poster couple of the 1%—owners Aspen Ski Co/JP Morgan Chase.....] with a big fat Texas white trash sign on my pickup & park it in front of her drive like they do in real democracies down in South America that says:
Hope u r having fun skiing @ my neighbor’s Paula Crown Petit Trianon. Are u talking art? [ROFL: Paula is on the Presidential Arts Committee.] Or weapons? [not so ROFL: The Crowns’ big $ is General Dynamics, a merchant of death that sells to both sides.]
btw, what’s the name of that song Skico banned?
I’m gonna B frank. We’ve figured u elites out. Games up. We r the 99%. Enough.
[google Chris Hedges 4 more on this.] If you take a morning walk on Monday, I’d suggest u take a left on Tiehack and go 3 blocks & see the sculpture we [all 27 of us—hey we grew!], in Occupy Aspen, made last week. It has lots of references to the Revolution, both American &.... French. We even made a guillotine and hung a barbie from the 3rd floor window. your host, our local Marie Antoinette tried to get the last sculpture removed-—it was public art in a public place-—really LOL -—the City sent me a letter asking me to remove it. It gets funnier. The City copied two VP’s & a CEO from SKico on it.
Can u say company town?
but then your husband signed a law that allows him to send Americans 2 Guantanomo without trial without warrant without limits on time....& I love my community here in Aspen so I resort to the power of the net. besides, the hardware store gossip was that the X-tra visitors in town looked like Chicago thugs. not the crown royals -—the secret service.
my european friends remark: u americans r only free 2 do what they tell u 2 can do. ironically, the aspen art museum summed it up nicely in a recent exhibition on Crown owned property: AMERIKA
little people-—occupy the tea party. lee mulcahy, 4 blocks over
Slummin’ on a G650, Mrs. Pelosi’s favorite ride!
I read she wears a size 12-13 shoe size!!!
Gd willing, this will be her last on our dime.
After what they have done to us, it’s plumb sick that she doesn’t miss a single potential vacation. Ski week. The tropics for the winter. It’s all just so classless. She is acting like a total snob.
Do you know what shocks me? That she wasn’t the center of attention at Whitney’s going home ceremony today.
Maybe we should be thankful that she’s skiing Buttermilk, over half a country away from that global event.
BTW, in the pic you posted, even with tight, firming pants, she’s a hoss. /tacky
Good point. Only saved one flight. Actually, who cares where Obummer is, unless he is in your face.
LIKE THAT FAT SLOB EVER SKIED IN HER LIFE. HOW MUCH IS THIS COSTING US TAXPAYERS.
LOL QUEEN KONG. EXCELLENT!
They put a rack of ribs at the bottom of the slopes. She will go down.
A minor correction: Her skirt lift!
