Bacon, Bacon, Bacon


Buttermilk Mountain closes tomorrow, April 6. But all we can think about today is bacon. Tomorrow is annual Bacon Appreciation Day at Buttermilk and if you thought that bacon was just for breakfast - think again! You can indulge in your bacon fantasy all day, from 9am bacon waffles at the top of the Summit Express to afternoon bacon desert at Bumps or bacon-inspired cocktails at 4pm. Better eat your veggies today to offset the bacon tomorrow!

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!
