Winter has arrived in Aspen with the resort opening early and operating for almost 2 weeks. Now, Snowmass has officially joined Aspen in opening for the 2018/2019 season!
There was lots to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. Skiers and riders were greeted with sunshine and freshly groomed trails. The grills were hot with happy chefs cooking up some up breakfast for those early riders eager to fuel up for the fun day ahead. The sunshine stuck around most of the morning, then the clouds rolled in bringing fresh snow. It was a Thanksgiving treat that skiers and riders were all grateful to have. The gratefulness continued as 12 to 16 inches of snow is expected to fall by the end of the weekend. Even the dogs were happily feasting in Thanksgiving snow.
