Longtime local Betty Moore died on Dec. 14 in her home in Santa Barbara. She was 87.
She and her husband, Ken Moore, discovered Aspen on a ski trip in 1952. They moved here four years later and built the Tipple Inn, one of the first ski-in, ski-out lodges in Aspen.
She was an avid river runner, skier, hiker, cyclist, sailor and all around mountain woman.
Betty was an early board member of Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and she organized and held many successful events in support of the arts. She rode with the Roaring Fork Hounds and served on the boards of the Aspen Community School and Aspen Country Day School.
