November 21, 2009

The excitement is palpable this time of year here in Aspen, Co as the snow starts falling and ski season gets underway. Aspen mountain will be open to the public a day early on Wednesday, November 25th as a fundraiser for the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club. Tickets will be $35 dollars for adults and $15 dollars for those 18 and under. The official opening day for Aspen and Snowmass mountains is Thursday, November 26th, with top to bottom skiing on Aspen Mountain! Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk will follow soon, with openings on December 12th. Many people around town have a good feeling about this ski season, but I'm superstitious when it comes to snowfall, so we will leave it at that!
Following soon after opening day, Aspen will be hosting the Annual Aspen Winternational Audi FIS Alpine World Cup on Saturday, November 28th and Sunday, November 29th. Some of the best ski racing talent in the world will descend upon Aspen to compete in the women's World Cup slalom and giant slalom. In addition to these exciting races, the Bud Light Hi-Fi concert series will be kicking off the season with a free concert followed by a fireworks display at the gondola plaza on Saturday the 28th. On both days of the races Aspen Skico will be conducting complimentary food and beverage tastings for the race spectators. For a full schedule of events go to .
