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 Break!!!

Friday, March 8th, 2013

The snow keeps on coming and the action is heating up with spring break just around the corner! There are tons of fun events coming up this month in Aspen Snowmass. Bud Light Big Air Fridays will continue every week through the end of the month. A couple other competitions coming up soon are the KickAspen Big Air on the 23rd and the Buttermilk Snowboard Rail Jam on the 31st. There are some awesome ski races coming up as well, such as the NASTAR National Championships on the 20th, the Elk Mountains Grand Traverse on the 29th, and the Battle in the Bowls at Aspen Highlands on the 30th.

This is one of the best times of year to take a ski vacation (and work on your goggle tan). The snow coverage is great, and the weather is even better! Get your friends together and start planning now, and don’t forget to reserve your ski rentals early.

p.s. More snow is on the way. 4-7” tonight and another 4-7” through Saturday! (Read as: POWDER DAY!) Check out our Facebook page for more frequent updates as we’ll be posting some pictures over the next couple of days. Click below to drop in.

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.

Happy New Year to everyone from our ski rental shops here in Aspen and Snowmass! Some of our crew has made some unique New Year’s Resolutions this year: “ski every powder day”, “make eight laps in one day on the Hanging Valley Wall at Snowmass”, and “Hike the Highlands Bowl for the first time.” We’ve got a lot to look forward to in 2013! There are plenty of exciting events that are firing up soon, such as the Aspen Highlands SkiMo Race Series with the first race on January 10th, and the Audi Ski Challenge dual giant slalom race on the 12th. Another huge, can’t miss event is the ESPN Winter X Games that’s held at Buttermilk ski area from Thursday the 24th through Sunday the 27th of January. Start planning your ski vacation now! We’ll see you on the slopes!

Snow hits Aspen/Snowmass!

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Greetings from Aspen Snowmass! With Christmas just a week out, Santa has delivered over a foot of snowfall. While at work, the Incline crew is dreaming of slaying the fresh snow at the Highlands bowl. Snow totals at Highlands will be around 1.5-2 feet! Only a few brave souls dared to call in today “claiming” a brief 24 hour ailment.
Ski breaks will be the theme of today! For all the travelers anxiously awaiting arrival to the Aspen area, they can find solace in the fact that another snow event is scheduled for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!
