It was a great weekend of exciting Women's World Cup Ski Racing on Aspen Mountain. Saturday's GS event saw US Team Member Julia Mancuso race to a strong third place finish, on the podium. On Sunday, the top US finisher was young newcommer Mikaela Shiffrin, just 16 years old. She raced to an 8th place finish, and it was exciting to see her race two great, consistant runs. A Colorado resident, Mikaela is a new shining star for the US Team. Congratulaions to all the World Cup racers, and thanks for coming to Aspen!

Snow conditions on Aspen and at Snowmass have been surprisingly good for this opening weekend, and skiers are having fun! Thaksgiving Day was the official opening of Aspen Mountain with top to bottom skiing, and Snowmass has been open for several days already. Slopes were uncrowded and conditions were darn good for so early in the winter. We are enjoying a blue sky Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend. Come ski and snowboard with us and enjoy those "first of the season" turns!
