Lifts Are Spinning at Aspen Mountain and Snowmass

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Aspen Mountain and Snowmass are both up and running for the season with new terrain opening every week. Skiers and snowboarders seeking soft snow at Snowmass today were rewarded with the Sheer Bliss lift opening (aptly named, as there was plenty of untracked snow.) As of today, Village Express, Elk Camp Gondola, Sam’s Knob, Big Burn, Sheer Bliss, and the Meadows lifts were open at Snowmass. At Ajax, the Silver Queen Gondola and Ajax Express lifts were turning.

Here at the ski shop we’re just finishing up getting all of this year’s skis and snowboards ready for the season. Our new rental fleet is looking sweet and we’re all excited for this winter. We hope to see you out here enjoying the snow on your ski vacation.

This picture is from Gwyn’s High Alpine in Snowmass. It was taken mid storm yesterday!! Aspen Mt. has reported 16 inches in the last two days. Great way to start the season!!! We did a handful of rentals yesterday as people were looking for wider skis to match the pow conditions. More snow is slated for the middle of the week. Both Aspen and Snowmass open again next weekend and will stay open until April. Come in for discounts on your rental gear!!!!

Early Open

 

Lets get this party start early!

 

After weeks of rumors, Aspen Mountain and Snowmass Mountain will be opening early this year. We have a had a very wet October and after a dry week, more snow is in the forecast over the next 7 days. The mountains look very different than a year ago. It is encouraging to see white peaks.  Our shops are just about ready to open and with a strong push, we will be ready for the early opening.

 

We have started mounting the 2014 gear and are stoked to finally get to ski. Come by the shop for early season discounts on ski rentals in both our Aspen and Snowmass locations.
