The long and storied history of the 10th Mountain Division is the subject of a new Warren Miller documentary, "Climb to Glory: Legacy of the 10th Mountain Ski Troopers." Presented by the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museums, the film will be shown at the Wheeler Opera House tomorrow, April 4. The evening begins at 6pm with a talk led by 10th Mountain Division veteran and Carbondale resident Dick McCrudden. The film will be screened at 6:30.
According to the skiers at Aspen Square, the snow conditions are epic today! In the last 48 hours both Aspen Mountain and Snowmass have received 18" of fresh snow, with Highlands and Buttermilk big recipients as well. The skies have cleared and it's bright, sunny and cold - an ideal Aspen ski and ride day, and this could be you!
If you visit the Elk Mountains Grand Traverse website, www.elkmountainstraverse.com, you'll see that the clock is ticking down to the start of this year's Grand Traverse at midnight, March 29. The Elk Mountain Grand Traverse is a grueling 40-mile race that begins in Crested Butte and ends at Aspen Mountain. Participants will experience sub-zero temperatures, challenging backcountry terrain and will traverse 7,800 vertical feet. It's not an event for the faint of heart!
