Since arriving in Aspen in 1971, Tim Cottrell has been fortunate enough to live a storied life. Tim has been living and working in the Roaring Fork Valley for 45 years. He owned several restaurants, including the legendary Smuggler Land Office, and has served 25 years for the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department where he was a captain for 10 years. He has been producing and launching the firework shows for the Valley's signature holidays since 1974. Tim also coached several teams with Aspen Jr. Hockey over 18 seasons. Most importantly he raised a daughter and three sons in Aspen- what a place to grow up! Tim's longevity in the area has earned him a deep knowledge of the upper Roaring Fork Valley communities and has allowed him to be an invaluable resource for connecting buyers and sellers over the past 19 years. For fun, Tim is also an Ambassador on Aspen Mountain on Fridays: drop him a line and he'll show you the mountain from a local's perspective. You'll be glad you did.
