This weekend, Buttermilk Mountain and Highlands will open. With the opening of these two mountains, the Power of Four will be completed. Starting this Saturday, you will be able to ski any of the four mountains by purchasing just one lift ticket. Due to great early season snow, Snowmass and Aspen will continue to open untracked terrain while Highlands will have a mountain full of fresh powder to share with the public. Buttermilk will open its famous terrain park for those who wish to practice their skills on the half pipe and rails.
What more can be said about one of the deepest season starts at Snowmass? Happily, the ropes on terrain keep dropping. Campground, the run AND the chair will open. Slot will be groomed from the top of Sam's Knob all the way down. Alpine Springs and High Alpine chairs will open up all the runs on the middle of Snowmass. Selected runs in the Wall will open (yes, the Wall and it is only December 10th). Adams Avenue will open to provide a link back to Fanny Hill. High Alpine restaurant will open on Saturday as well.
This weekend, Dec. 9-11, the world's fastest women will compete for three days in Aspen for a chance at a gold medal in the Women's World Cup competition. Featuring such events as the Giant Slalom, Super-G and Slalom, the women will try to garner international notoriety before heading off to the "World Games" in Italy in February. To accompany the entertainment and suspense of the World Cup Race, the Gin Blossoms will host a free concert in downtown Aspen. A firework extravaganza will follow the concert.
Last Friday, skiers on Aspen and Snowmass Mountains were thinking that ski conditions were looking pretty good for early season. That was before over two feet of snow fell over the weekend. On both Saturday and Sunday, locals and guests experienced a truly epic powder day on Aspen and Snowmass Mountains. As the day progressed, patrollers slowly opened new terrain that had not yet been skied this season. The first-time openings gave ski enthusiasts the chance to receive true "first tracks" in over 50 inches of snow accumulation.
This weekend, Aspen / Snowmass is hosting the second annual Familiarization Tour for travel agents from all over. Today, the employees of the Aspen Skiing Company, Aspen / Snowmass property representatives, and Stay Aspen Snowmass representatives were able to spend the day out on the slopes showing the Travel Agents around the infamous Aspen Mountain. As the snow keeps falling, conditions just keep getting better.
Aspen and Snowmass Mountains are officially open, and the conditions are quite amazing for early season. Not to mention that Aspen / Snowmass are currently under a winter storm warning, calling for more snowfall. This snowfall could mean a fourth day of powder conditions, and the mountain has only been open for less than a full week. Below, you will see a picture of opening day on Aspen Mountain, since that day the mountains have accumulated another foot and a half of snow...and counting.
Thanksjibbing will throw the start of the winter season into high gear, November 25-26. During Thanksjibbing weekend, on Saturday evening, "The Trews" will kick-off the Budweiser Hi-Fi concert series, which begins November 26th and runs through April, and they will provide an outdoor concert to accompany the athletes who will show-off their skills on cutting edge rails, boxes and jib features at the base of Aspen Mountain. This event will introduce the athletes of Team Aspen/Snowmass who are leaders in their respective disciplines.
With the addition of the new "Deep Temerity" lift, came an additional 100 acres of new terrain. And, as work on the new lift and runs continued, the summer crew found extra time and funds to clear an additional 80 acres of new steeps, chutes and tree runs. The new lift will add up to 1,100 vertical feet in Highland Bowl and double the length of most of the terrain it serves. The new 180 acres will add some of the most difficult ski area terrain in North America, and challenge Bowl enthusiasts to increase how many Bowl runs they can pack into one full ski day.
So you're coming to town for Thanksgiving and you want to get a head start on the slopes? You want a taste of the fresh snow we just received? Does the thought of first tracks on Aspen Mountain sound good? Come join the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club for our annual Ski and Snowboard Day on Wednesday, November 23rd. Aspen Skiing Company has generously allowed us access to the mountain the day before the official opening day to help the Club raise money.
As opening day on Aspen and Snowmass Mountain approaches, the snow continues to accumulate. Over 16 inches of snow has fallen in the past two days, creating a base of 32 inches and counting. Yesterday, the blizzard was so strong that drivers could not see more than 20 feet ahead of them. With more snow in the forecast, and cold temperatures at night allowing for snow making to occur, locals and visitors cannot wait to get first tracks. Opening day is less than 10 days away, and the Women's World Cup follows shortly after.
