Festive Mountain Finale


The time has come...Aspen and Snowmass are closing for the ski season. Aspen Highlands has one more glorious week but this weekend, we'll be celebrating the longest run of non-stop sunshine and one of the more scenic spring seasons on record.

This means parties at Snowmass' Base Village with music, drink specials and closing day antics - and back in Aspen, anything goes. Look for costumes, apres-ski finales and an overall festive vibe, as we send off another action-packed winter on the slopes.
