Proving that Aspen appeals to guests of all sizes, @legoskierbro has carved out a following of over 28,000 fans on Instagram by living the Aspen lifestyle to its fullest.
The diminutive celebrity stands only 1.5 inches (or 3.81 centimeters) but that doesn't inhibit his ability to make the most of his time on the slopes.
According to the Aspen Times, "He skins up Aspen Mountain to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks like a true local, dresses up as a hot dog to take part in closing day festivities and charges through chest-deep powder, finding fresh lines on every mountain he visits. This winter he’s posted from the Powder Awards and tallied likes for straight-lining Ozone in Highland Bowl, chopping down his own Christmas tree and shredding with #LegoSanta at the North Pole."
He rides with a crew of friends including #legoskierbabe, #legobrad, #legosnowboardbro, his robot #legoskierbot and his faithful companion #legodog (pictured up top).
The Aspen Times Weekly recently tracked him down and asked him a few questions.
ATW: What do you love about the Aspen area?
LSB: Aspen-Snowmass in the winter is the best place on Earth. There is snow everywhere and most days are sunny with clouds in the distance. What else could you want?
ATW: What is your favorite line to shred in Aspen-Snowmass?
LSB: I can shred anything, anywhere, anytime, but most of the time I’m skiing double black diamonds on the Crown Jewel. My favorite place to be is right in front of skiers who think they are better than me. I’ve never cared about being better than anyone (or everyone for that matter) when it comes to my skiing, but I am constantly surrounded by exceptional skiers who end up making me look even better. I’m not going to give away my favorite stashes; you could torture me and I would never tell — I don’t want them to get tracked out!
ATW: You share a lot of good tips on #ProTipTuesday, but what’s the best tip you’ve got to share?
LSB: I’ve given a lot of advice over the years, but the main thing I would like to impart is that you should be yourself and do something original — because that’s what everyone really wants to see.
ATW: Who makes a better ski/adventure companion? #legobrad, #legodog, #legoskierbot, #legosnowboardbro or #legoskierbabe?
LSB: My whole crew helps me survive and I need them to tell my story. #legoskierbabe has to be my number one, but #legodog and #legobrad are both a close second. #legoskierbot was fun to have around but he didn’t come around too much last year after his malfunction. #legosnowboardbro is perfect when you want to wait for him to buckle his back binding.
