Skiers and boarders were milling around the Gondola Plaza this morning, excited for the early opening of Aspen Mountain. Last night brought fresh inches of snow in town and it's still lightly snowing. The mountain will be open tomorrow as well. This shot was taken about 9am today - bring on the winter!

Aspen Mountain Opens Early!


Thanks to early November snows and cold temperatures, Aspen Mountain will open on Saturday, November 16 for two days. And, starting Saturday, November 23, the mountain will open daily for the season, five days ahead of the scheduled opening. Needless to say we're excited and know you will be too!
