A weekend storm rolled through Aspen/Snowmass dropping another foot of snow on top of area peaks. The upper slopes of Snowmass, Aspen Mountain and Aspen Highlands received more than 12 inches of snow and lower parts of the mountain saw up to six inches. Since October 15, nearly three feet of snow has fallen on the area.

Snowmass and Aspen Mountain are scheduled to open on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.  Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are scheduled to open Saturday, December 8.

There are exciting changes in store for the 2007-2008 winter season at Aspen/Snowmass with $25.5 million in improvements.  Snowmass will be the focal point with the first phase of the new base village coming online, including The Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center, a rental/retail shop and ticket offices. Elk Camp Meadows learning area will also open at Snowmass this season.

Aspen/Snowmass will once again host the best women ski racers in the world Dec. 7-9, during the 2007 Aspen Winternational FIS Women’s World Cup. This year’s event will feature both speed and technical races, including the first women’s downhill in Aspen in nearly 20 years, along with super G and slalom races. The races will be the focal point of a weekend packed with additional events including a Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert, gondola plaza festivals, fireworks and parties.
