Jeff Isaacson’s business has been based out of Glenwood Springs for about 30 years, and he’s been hauling his sweets up to Snowmass since the Fest began in 2004.This year, make sure and try his signature jalapeño sorbet.That’s right, jalapeño.”It’s so cold it’s gonna keep you warm,” Isaacson said.

Festivalgoers can also sample Isaacson’s treats at the Summer of Jazz series and area farmer’s markets this summer.Starting today and running through Sunday, the Snowmass Chili Pepper & Brew Fest features microbrew and chili tastings, and live music on the Fanny Hill stage.Tickets are $15 today and $20 Saturday for a Festival Pass, offering access to outdoor concerts on Fanny Hill, and food, beer, and wine concessionaires.
