Aspen/Snowmass has announced special deals and promotions for the 2013-2014 ski/snowboard season, with savings from opening day in November through closing day in April. New this season, Aspen/Snowmass will offer families the Perfect Holiday, as kids ski free with the purchase of an adult lift ticket over the peak holiday season.
Elsa Bailey made it up to Arapahoe Basin for her 101st birthday party on Saturday. She skied down Pika Place, possibly setting a world record for the oldest woman to strap on skis and descend downhill. Her ski pals from Colorado Springs, the VIBES crew, and her friends and family came in from all over the country to help her celebrate.
The spring ski and ride season has been incredible recently at the ‘Basin, and today was no exception. The snow report you saw this morning was accurate – 12” of fresh snow blanketed Arapahoe Basin Ski Area today, just in time for another weekend of live music, amazing food and – of course – the best skiing still available in the state.
Here at Colorado Ski Country, we love giving things away.
We’re loving the April snow that we’ve seen so far, and we’re having a strong late-season here in Colorado Ski Country. We have four resorts that are still open, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Aspen Highlands and Winter Park, and we’re affectionately calling this the “season that won’t quit.”
Aspen Skiing Company has announced that Aspen Highlands will reopen for the weekend of April 27-28 in appreciation of skiers and riders for a great season. While Snowmass, Aspen Mountain and Buttermilk are closed for the season, Aspen Highlands will remain open through April 21 as scheduled and then reopen April 27-28. Consistent snowfall over the last week has made for great conditions and enjoyable spring skiing and riding on the mountain.

Ski resorts look different when viewed through someone else’s eyes.
Last month, I joined two friends, Betsy and Uschi, for two days of skiing at Purgatory (a.k.a. Durango Mountain Resort). Betsy is a long-time Purgatory skier who knows the mountain inside and out. Uschi is an accomplished adaptive monoskier and instructor.
