Just got to looking into this and apparently after his death the woman from the song came forward and said it actually took place in Peoria

So almost have a good Fogelberg story...while in school I blew off my family & went to Aspen with Aunt/Uncle & first cousins, they had a condo, mostly free trip other than lift tickets & some food. I'd just turned 21, cousins were 5 & 6 years older, married and there husbands were a few years older yet...but I had everyone rallied to make one trip to the bars, but after skiing all day they were too tired & blew me off. Next day on the ski slopes everyone was talking about how Fogelberg, Jimmy Buffett, & John Denver showed up at the downtown bars and were jamming. I still hold a grudge on that one.
