It may look like spring here in town, but on the top of Aspen Mountain, it's still winter. So the good people at the Aspen Skiing Company are opening Aspen Mountain for a weekend of Memorial Day skiing. Beginning Saturday, May 24 and ending on Memorial Day, May 26, the Silver Queen Gondola will run from 9am to 2pm each day. After some runs, you can always come back down and play a round of golf!
Today's paper announced that the Colorado Department of Transportation hopes to open the road over Independence Pass at 2pm tomorrow, May 22. Avalanche control was completed last week, so all that remains is to clear the snow off the road. To make sure you can come over the Pass tomorrow afternoon, visit www.cotrip.org or call 511 from anywhere in Colorado.
Sundays are a great day to do something fun with your family. And what better way to pass the day than by combining science and good food? Sunday, May 18, from 12 noon to 4pm, take the kids over to Science Sundays at Jimmy's Restaurant. This fun event offered by the Aspen Science Center will include three science "stations" featuring cookies (how ingredients interact), taste (what affects our ability to taste) and eggs (how eggs change when used for cooking). Appetizers and snacks will be provided for participants. From 4-5, grownups can investigate the Science of Cocktails!
