Founded in January 2005, PowdertothePeople.org works to maintain backcountry access for the public through outreach, education and awareness. And to celebrate the arrival of fresh powder on the hill, it's the Powder to the People season kick-off party and backcountry gear/snowmobile swap. This Friday at the Eagle's Club, join Powder to the People from 3-5:30 for the gear swap and 5:30 - 8:00p for festivities, including food, drink, live music and silent auction.

According to the holiday calendar, Thanksgiving Weekend has called it a wrap but around town, the sentiments of thanks continue. We all may need a day or two to recover from the goodness: stellar opening weekend snow conditions, followed by abundant sunshine and perfect World Cup viewing conditions. Parties, music, fireworks... celebrating the bounty of winter, Aspen-style. Rest up, because just around the corner it's the Summit for Life, our favorite party and fundraiser for a tremendous cause, featuring and supporting our own Chris Klug.
Town is positively humming with all this new snow, and alive with the excitement of the opening ski season! 2-3 feet, more to come...snow reports can be padded, it's true, but rest assured there's a whole lot of padding on the hill -- just waiting to be skied on by you and yours. We are welcoming amazing early-season snow, with more on the way! This weekend is World Cup Race Weekend, featuring the best women racers in the world -- and lots of fun! Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Aspen Square.
