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.
Schneetag, the last official Aspen/Snowmass event of the 2012 – 2013 season, will bring plenty of laughs to Snowmass on Sunday, April 14, as both Aspen Mountain and Snowmass will feature closing day fun.
The Mountain Collective™ has added three premier independent ski resorts in North America to its roster of iconic destinations for the 2013-2014 winter season. Mammoth Mountain, Snowbird and Whistler Blackcomb join Alta, Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows in this unprecedented collaboration of resorts.

Last week I rallied down to Aspen with staff photographer Aaron Dodds for the first park shoot of Volume 4 of Snowboard Colorado Magazine. We met up with a young crew of dudes – Red Gerard, Blake Axelson, Ezra Racine and Wylie Adams – and lucked out with a bluebird day.

Two big things happen at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen each January. The first, as you may have guessed, is the Winter X Games, at Buttermilk through at least 2014. The second is not so obvious, but it’s related to the X Games. It’s the Buttermilk Deluxe private lesson package, also known (at least to me) as “one big screaming deal.”
Greetings, all, and welcome to winter. I know a bunch of resorts have been open for a while already, but it’s finally starting to actually feel like winter too. Not only does it feel like winter, but the snow-gods have made it look like winter too. Want proof? Check out the snow report. That’s at least 11 resorts that are open with fresh snow. Bam. Like I said, welcome to winter.
