Roger Moyer

Roger Moyer arrived in Aspen on October 5th, 1965 at 12:30 am on his motorcycle, a Triumph T600. That morning, he met his friend Bill Rollins, the editor of the Aspen Illustrated News, at the Tippler restaurant formerly located at the base of Aspen Mountain and which now holds the Nell Residences. Bill made it possible for Roger to move into a log cabin near Difficult campground thus commencing his life in Aspen. After learning to ski in Garmisch-Partenkirchen while serving a tour of duty with the US Army, Roger developed an avid interest in winter sports and quickly became an expert skier. His move to Aspen was inspired by his interest in ski racing. He painted houses in the summer, and in 1967 joined Stein Erikson in opening the ski school in Snowmass. After starting Aspen Painting with fellow ski school instructor Ken Oakes in the spring of 1968, Stein’s West End residence became the first home painted by the new company. 

In 1970 Ken left Aspen Painting to pursue other endeavors and Roger took over full operation in 1973 the first winter paint crew, a husband and wife team, helped move the business forward commencing year-round operations. Roger continued to coach skiing part-time while managing the business. 

Aspen Painting quickly became known for its Victorian home restoration and intricate and detailed color work. A reputation that still holds to this day over 55 years later. During the ‘70s Roger attended his first Painting & Decorating Contractors Association convention in Chicago and has remained a member ever since serving as a national board member in the ‘80s and becoming one of the first certified residential contractors through the association’s stringent accreditation program.
