Young Chang The last day of the Chiapuzio's trip to Colorado was the prettiest because it snowed really hard and what started as gentle snowfall became a snowstorm, said Kymberly Chiapuzio of Corona del Mar. She, her daughter Chelsea and her husband Tony visited Aspen, Colo. last month to ski, dog sled and skate in an outdoor rink for a week. Kymberly Chiapuzio went to school in Colorado Springs and says she just "has an affinity for the place." For her 6-year-old's first adventure skiing, she wanted to bring the family back to her old city, where five other relatives met up with the trio.
