Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands Open For the Season

Monday, December 16th, 2013

As of last Saturday, Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands are open for the season. Aspen Highlands opened with a bang, offering plenty of powder to those who showed up. The groomed runs were sweet at Buttermilk with some fun features in the terrain park open as well. The 2013-2014 ski season is shaping up to be pretty awesome!

At the shop here we’ve been testing out the new ski and snowboard equipment we have for hire. We’ve been really impressed with what companies like Volkl, K2, Rossignol, and Salomon have been doing with their skis. Johnny was out on the new Rome Reverb Rocker the other day and came back grinning from ear to ear. We’re stoked to have Rome Snowboards as part of our rentals this year.

Stop by our shop and say hi when you’re in town for the Holidays. Don’t forget to book your rentals in advance right here on our website to receive a great discount. Hope to see you soon!

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.

Spring Snow

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Spring skiing is in full swing and the outfits on the mountain are getting funky! Oh… and there’s more snow in the forecast for the end of this week!

Aspen Snowmass just hosted part of the Freeskier Magazine 2014 ski tests at our mountains this past week. Their gang was ripping up Aspen Mountain for 5 days, pushing all of the latest and greatest skis to their limits. The results will be featured in their 2014 Buyer’s Guide.  Here’s a link to some of the highlights:

Also, here’s a video that’ll blow your mind. 13-year old snowboarder, Marcus Kleveland, lands his first ever backside triple cork 1440, making him the youngest to ever land a triple on snowboard.

Skis of the Week

Bluebird Powder Day 2/18/13

Happy snow day! This week it’s looking like the stars will align again and the clouds will open up and cover us with a deep fluffy white blanket of snow. The weather forecast for the Aspen Snowmass area through the weekend is calling for snow, some more snow…. and a bit more snow.

Some popular rental skis this week have been our wider all mountain skis. For the guys, the K2 Aftershock, Volkl Mantra, and Rossignol Experience have been the hot skis. For the gals, ski rentals such as the Volkl Aura, Rossignol Temptation, and the K2 Superstitious have been leaving vapor trails as they fly out our doors.

In snowboard alley, the High Society Twilight and Lib Tech Skate Banana have been popular for the dudes as well as the K2 First Lite boards for the girls.

If you make it out this weekend you might catch a few of us making laps on the Silver Queen Gondola at Aspen Mountain.

SIA and Snow!!

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Guess what? We’ve got snow! The last winter storm that rolled through this area at the beginning of last week left Snowmass with about 14 inches of new snow for the storm total, Aspen Mountain reported 19 inches of powder, while Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands got 17 and 15 inches respectively. And that’s not all, because another snow storm is in the weather forecast to hit us this coming weekend! Ullr is finally giving us the weather we’ve been waiting for!

Some of our crew was lucky enough to spend last weekend over in Denver at the SIA Snow Show. They were there checking out all of the new ski and snowboard gear for the 2013-2014 season. Then on Monday and Tuesday they were burdened with the task of taking the skis and snowboards to the snow and testing them out. Our rental skis and snowboards for next year are looking pretty sweet!
