Default Gym in Aspen, CO

Hope I am in the right category with this one. Anyway, this is a long shot, but it looks like I'm moving to Aspen for a few months. Since I'll probably be spending a lot of my free time on the slopes, I was thinking about using this period as an introduction to Olympic lifting. I know it's a small town, but does anyone know of any half-decent facilities in the area? Preferably one with some staff that knows what they are doing in regards to olympic lifts. Thanks in advance.

I was there a few years ago, and I think there was at least one place that had bumpers, but it was ludicrously expensive, like everything else in Aspen. I don't remember the name.

My brother lives in the Roaring Forks Valley, now in Glenwood Springs, and lamented the fact that nobody who actually works in Aspen can live anywhere near the town, and the fact that the last inexpensive dive bar was bought out and converted to a nouveau riche hangout.

Gorgeous country, though.
