To honor its historic milestone 75th anniversary, on January 11, 2022, Aspen Snowmass will mark the occasion with a day of community-wide celebrations on Aspen Mountain.
The festivities are open to all and will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a ski parade beginning at the summit of Aspen Mountain and ending at the base of Aspen’s original Lift 1 in Willoughby Park. Skiers who are strong intermediate level or above are invited to join the parade.
At 12:00 p.m., in conjunction with the daily noon siren, Aspen Snowmass will host a lift dedication reenactment and celebration in Willoughby Park at the former base of the original Lift 1. The ceremony will feature a reenactment of the 1947 “champagne smash” and special guest speakers, including Aspen Snowmass President and CEO, Mike Kaplan, and Scott Fitzwilliams of the White River National Forest. A complimentary champagne toast will also be served to those in attendance to mark the occasion.
Other anniversary activations include toasting to the 75th with a specialty Aspen 75 cocktail, a spin-off of the original French 75, available for $7.50 in all on-mountain restaurants with bar service. The Aspen 75 will also be available in The Little Nell and the Limelight Hotels.
