Aspen Square Daily News
The word is official. Aspen Mountain will open for skiing for the Memorial Day Weekend. They may open the top of Aspen Mountain on subsequent weekends also, weather allowing. Following an amazing season and particularly major snow in the spring, there is still so much snow up on Aspen Mountain to allow for skiing, nearly a month after official closing of the ski season. The base is still over 70 inches on top! The gondola and Chair 3 -- Aspen Express - will be open, with reduced lift ticket rates; and the Sundeck Restaurant will be open.
The warm weather season is here, and we are making plans for a wonderful summer! There is so much to see and enjoy in Aspen this season. Music, concerts, activities, and special events from the USA Pro Bike Challenge to the Big B-B-Q block party. The Annual Food and Wine Weekend starts it all off in mid-June. There is always the option of just sitting around the Aspen Square pool! Come see us soon, and enoy the Colorado sunshine, great weather and all that fun! Call and ask about great spring and early summer rates -- and come see us!
Can it be true? Even with so much fresh snow, the ski and snowboard season has come to an end. Aspen Highlands was the last ski area to close, with still amazing snow on the slopes. It was a wonderful winter ski and snowboard season, and conditions were the best all winter long. April recorded over four feet of snowfall! We just cannot wait until we reopen for skiing at Thankgivig. Now, we’re settling into a quieter time of the year here at Aspen Square. Rates are WAY down now for spring, as we enjoy a slower pace and prepare for what should be another wonderful summer.
