Buttermilk Mountain closes on Sunday and although we're sorry to see "the 'Milk" season end, we can't wait for the third annual Bacon Appreciation Day. Bacon-inspired specialties will be offered all day including bacon waffles, bacon samplers, and bacon-flavored specials at the Cliff House and Bumps. And don't forget the bacon and beer happy hour at Bumps featuring DJ Ronnie! Attendance is highly encourage (and don't forget the Tums).
While you were sleeping peacefully last night, two-person teams took off at midnight on the 16th annual Elk Mountain Grand Traverse - a 40-mile backcountry endurance race from Crested Butte to Aspen. Racers will climb more than 7,800 vertical feet before descending into Aspen this afternoon. Come cheer on these great athletes at the finish line, they deserve it!
The Aspen Community Easter Egg Hunt takes place at noon on Easter Sunday, March 31. This free event is for children 8 and under, with different zones for egg hunters of all ages, including children under 2. More than 4,000 toy-filled eggs will be hidden throughout the park and the Easter Bunny will be visiting, so bring your cameras as well as your own egg baskets!
