Special Events Manager
Director of Member Services
Erik Klanderud is the Director of Member Services at the Aspen Chamber Resort Association (ACRA), and he just might be this mountain town's No. 1 fan. Klanderud (who also happens to be former mayor Helen Klanderud's son) has been graciously providing visitors and curious locals with vital Aspen information through ACRA for the last 9 years. That task comes easily to Klanderud, who has spent the last four decades living in our mountain town and cultivating his expert status on all things Aspen (he is even a graduate of Aspen High School, Class of '84). Whether you're wondering what trail to hike, where to eat, or when the Wheeler Opera House was constructed, Erik always has an answer, and it almost always comes with a smile. For great conversation and an Aspen factoid, you can find this hometown boy at the ACRA offices at 425 Rio Grande Place.
