Winter in Aspen / Snowmass has Arrived!

As we wait in anticipation for the opening day of Aspen Mountain, the snow has begun to taunt us. There are only 50 days until ski season begins and today marks the first snow fall in Aspen / Snowmass of the winter season. This morning, car windows were frosted over, you could see your breath as you exhaled and a layer of white dusted the slopes on Aspen Mountain. This snow could be the beginning of an epic ski season, but for the next fifty days we will just have to wait with high hopes for lots of fresh powder on opening day.

Aspen Filmfest draws off-season crowds

The filmfest begins today, September 28, and ends on Sunday October 2. Today's films include "The Overture", "Ballets Russes", and "Capote".

All proceeds from the Boulder event will be donated to the Mile-High Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Glenwood Caverns - excitement in the fall season

This past weekend, employees of Stay Aspen Snowmass had the opportunity to ride a new gondola and experience the Glenwood Caverns. I was very impressed with the variety of activities they had available. Not the least of which involved exploring the famous Glenwood caverns. Our guide, Bob, was a retired science teacher from Rifle, Co and proved to be both entertaining and informative. The caverns have a variety of unique and fascinating geological features (more than just your average stalagtite/stalagmite cave) with a rich history to boot.

The Renaissance of Snowmass - New Improvements at the Village!

The Renaissance of Snowmass, CO is being done to provide fast mountain access, which means more time skiing and less time waiting in line. Snowmass will upgrade its renowned ski area by creating a new base village, which will add over 64,000 square feet of new shops, restaurants, a community aquatic center, and newer, faster lifts. For the first time, there will be a short, 2 minute ride on the Sky Cab taking you from the base village to the existing Snowmass Village Mall. The Sky Cab will also offer access to skiing and snowboarding on lower Fanny Hill for the 2005-2006 ski season.

Will South America Powder Predict a Good Winter to come?

Do you know what it is like to ski in over 23 feet of powder? Well, friends who are enjoying the winter season in South America could probably tell you. They just sent over some pictures of their powder day in Chile, over 23 feet of snow in one night. So much snow that the lifts were buried. Could you imagine?

World Amateur Championship of Golf -Final Day

Yesterday's final round didn't turn out to be any less challenging than the first three. With the world's largest golf tournament being contested across 75 courses in the Myrtle Beach area, each flight has an opportunity to play some of the better courses in the area, along with one or two of the less desirable. Sea Gull golf club was definately one of the less desirable, described by a local as "an 18 hole cow pasture surrounded by out-of-bounds on both sides of every hole." I must say I agree with that description.
