Aspen Square Daily News
Thanksgiving Weekend bought a fun weekend of racing on Aspen Mountain as the top women racers in the world gathered for the World Cup slalom and giant slalom events. It was a preview of racers we will see at the Winter Olympics coming up in February. It was great racing, but not the best for our United States girls. None made it onto the podium on either day, but the crowds were enthusiastic, the weather mostly sunny and bright and the racing was fast. What a weekend!
With all this new snow on the mountains of Aspen, we are well on our way to another wonderful winter ski/snowboard season. Early snow is already deep on Aspen Mountain,following amazing snowfall this past weekend. Remember, the four areas of Aspen offer uncrowded slopes, a huge variety of terrain and all the skiing you could ever want! There is nothing quite like Colorado Powder, and skiing under blue skies on the open slopes of Aspen.
Thanksgiving Weekend will see the return of Women's World Cup Ski Racing, an exciting event that has become an annual feature of early season skiing in Aspen. Races will be on Aspen Mountain, and all events are free to spectators. The fun continues in town with a snow "carnival" in Gondola Plaza, concerts on the mall, and restaurant specials all over town.
