One 30-something gay man opines on the paltry selection of potential suitors, both at the bars and on apps such as Grindr and Scruff (for queer hipsters into facial/body hair—really). “Perhaps there is more of a stigma attached to it: You’re a slut if you use it, whereas in big cities it’s par for the course.” During Gay Ski Week, however, “Grindr looks like it does in a normal city, an endless grid of flesh.” Another factor: Our “Shangri-La in the mountains” is an incubator of extremes, where an adrenaline- and substancefueled party atmosphere, whirling merry-go-round of tourists and epic outdoor recreation foster wild behavior.
“This town exudes instant gratification as a value,” notes Lori Kret, one half of Aspen Relationship Coaching with husband Jeff Cole. You walk out your door and you’re in the most beautiful place!

Within a week I found Katie.” Now cohabitating in Snowmass Village—and insistent that I use their real names—the couple is vocal about how they linked up. ” Annabelle*, 70, who met her first husband the oldfashioned way, in a lift line on Aspen Mountain in 1971, declares, “You would need an app to meet anyone today!
Oh, well, I’ll find someone else...’” Editor’s Note: Names with an asterisk have been changed.
Still, because meeting men in the mountains is inevitable—females comprise the rarer sex in the Rockies, after all—she began the mating dance with a guy. “I realized that dating someone who was well known in the area was not what I wanted,” says Allison, a health and wellness professional. The location-based app, which bills itself as a casual social connector of paramours, pals and even business partners in which ladies make the first move, has established a growing presence in Aspen over the past year.
