Early December means the start of Holiday Party Season. Look no further than our own Chris Klug's lineup of fundraising - and fun-raising - festivities. The Summit For Life weekend of December 10 and 11 promises a grand time and all for a great cause! Friday saw the Pacifica's Wine and Dine with phenomenal seafood and designer drinks, followed by the Party for Life with snacks, more drinks and a music-filled after party. Saturday, it's Race Day and Night, with a grand finale at the Sundeck on the top of Aspen Mountain.
With Aspen Square as your home base, the mountains are yours to explore. There's a new, authentic Mexican food sensation opening in Snowmass Village. With restaurants in Denver, New York and culinary capitals near and far, Chef Richard Sandoval brings his taste-tested formula to the slopes, with Venga Venga Cantina & Tequila Bar. Venga Venga features authentic Mexican cooking, 100 Tequilas and an outdoor patio for those occasional balmy apres-ski sessions! For more info, www.richardsandoval.com.
There've been a couple of Powder Posses, a few eager and willing forerunners to the powder-filled Highlands terrain; and many man-powered tracks up and down Buttermilk - but the official Opening Day ribbons have yet to be cut on both Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk Mountain. Mark your calendars during your stay at Aspen Square: December 11, the remaining hills around Aspen will come to life, with the sounds of ski season.
