With all of the snow we've received in the last few days (and it's still snowing!), our thoughts have definitely turned to ski season and it's approach. The early deadline for the best season pass rates is tomorrow, November 14, so if you've been putting it off, get moving and call the Aspen Skiing Company at (970) 923-1227 and make your purchase. You can also reload your existing ski pass online at www.aspensnowmass.com/seasonpass. Don't wait!
After All Hallows Eve celebrations, people throughout the Roaring Fork Valley pause to remember their loved ones who've gone before them. There are a number of Dia de los Muertos events taking place today, including a community procession down Carbondale's Main Street to the Third Street Center, followed by a performance of Que Viva, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklorico, music by SOL Theater and Davi Nikent with foods provided by Cocina del Valle. Events kick off at 6pm and costumes are encouraged. Details at www.carbondalearts.com.
